I would like to share a tool that I learned from a friend of mines called “SOAP” I love using the tool soap. You may choose any scripture you’d like for “SOAP” (S) scripture: find a scripture of your choice (O) observe: look 👀 over it, define some of the words Tom have a better understanding, if needed break it down (A) apply: what do the words mean to you, how you can apply them to your life? (P) pray
Scripture: Proverbs 3:5-6, Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto (do not depend on your) understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, (meaning: have fellowship and intimacy with God in all of life. The result of such devotion is that God will make the paths straight before you.) and he shall direct (make straight or smooth) thy paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6, three commands are give: trust, lean not, and acknowledge him
(S): Trust (meaning “rely on, depend on”) in the LORD with all thine heart ❤️; and lean not unto (meaning do not depend on your own native instincts) thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, (meaning have fellowship and intimacy with God in all of life. The result of such devotion is that God will make the paths straight before you.) and shall direct (make smooth or straight) the paths.
(O): Trust- rely on, depend on
Heart- the center of the total personality, especially with reference to intuition, feeling, or emotion, affection, spirit, courage, enthusiasm, the inner most or central part of anything.
Lean not- do not depend on your own understanding or do not depend on your own native instincts
Acknowledge- to admit to be real or true, recognize the existence, truth, or fact, recognize the authority
Devotion- earnest attachment to a cause or person, profound dedication; consecration
(A): To put my total trust in God and not in man. God won’t ever fail me, it man will fail me. My heart ❤️ devotion belongs to God. I will lean only on God and acknowledge him in everything
(P): Lord, I thank you that as I put my trust in you and stand upon your promises you won’t ever fail me. In everything I do will make sure to acknowledge you first, you will then make my paths straight before me. Satan I command you to flee from me as I submit myself unto God In Jesus Name, Amen 🙏
