Daily SOAP: Created For His Glory

SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Today’s journal comes from reading Isaiah 43.

Scripture

“Everyone who is called by My name, and whom I have created for My glory, whom I have formed, even whom I have made.” Isaiah 43:7

“The people whom I formed for Myself will declare my praise.” Isaiah 43:21 (“will someday honor Me before the whole world.” – NLT)

Observation

God created us for a purpose–to bring Him glory and declare His praise before the whole world. This is what those of us called by His Name are to do, and we delight in it.

Application

Arrogant, proud people chafe at hearing we exist for God’s glory. They believe they exist for their own glory–not God’s. Humble people realize God made us for His glory and delight to sound forth His praise to the nations.

Prayer

Father, I didn’t evolve by chance, and I don’t exist for my glory. You created me, made me for Your glory, and I find my highest purpose and joy in living  for You. Thank you for these truths, and I pray they would be more and more real in my life.

In Jesus’ Name,
Amen.
