Daily SOAP: Be Still My Soul

My daily journaling from God’s Word. SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Today’s journal comes from reading Psalm 46.

Scripture

“Be still and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.” –Psalm 46:10

Observation

The Psalm speaks of horrific things–earthquakes, mountains falling, oceans roaring and kingdoms crumbling. But none of this dethrones God or catches Him off-guard. It shouldn’t me either! He always prevails in the end!

Application

The news of the world can be shocking. Atrocities and terrorism are so disturbing. Yes, I might fight for truth and righteousness (Psalm 45:4), but my soul must be at rest and trusting in the Lord. Cease striving and know He will prevail!

Prayer

Father, evil men seem to be everywhere–and at times, they seem to be winning. But they won’t! Their end will come suddenly. You will prevail and in fact, my soul takes refuge and rest!

Amen.
