My daily journaling from God’s Word, SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Today’s journal comes from reading Romans 4.
“This happened because Abraham believed in the God who brings the dead back to life and who creates new things out of nothing.” –Romans 4:17
We serve a supernatural God. He does the impossible! He gives life to the dead and creates things out of nothing! Paul was a CREATIONIST! He didn’t see God as only guiding natural laws but as a supernatural, miracle-working God.
Do I believe God for miracles in my life? My ministry? Our churches? Is my expectation and hope based on what has happened in the past? On my present resources or on the power and promises of God?
I especially want/need to think this way in terms of raising up evangelists on campuses and the funds to help support them.
Father, forgive me for having such small faith–actually, for misplaced faith. As I plan and work to further Your kingdom, might I do so based on a God who calls into being new things out of nothing rather than on my past experiences or current resources. FAITH pleases You! Make me a man of faith for Your glory!
