Here is a guest SOAP journal from Mandy, Administrative Assistant for TSCM.
SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Today’s journal comes from reading Psalm 103.
“But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him…to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.” –Psalm 103: 17-18
The life of man is brief. “He flourishes like a flower of the field, but when it’s gone, it’s place knows it know more.”
God sees us. God remembers us. God values us. His steadfast love is for those who fear Him–to those who keep His covenant and remember to do His commandments.
“Know the Lord your God is God. He is the faithful God, keeping His covenant to a thousand generations of those who love Him and keep His commandments.”
Lord, deepen my understanding of who You are. May I remember Your faithfulness and remember that You are Lord over creation and the universe. You know all things past, present and future. Lord, I want to keep Your commandments, fear You and always experience Your steadfast love. Lord, You are the only truth in this world. Help me to hold fast to Your Word and commands. Your Word gives life. Thank You for giving me life.
To you be the glory, Amen.
