S.O.A.P


Our desire is that every believer would not just attend church, but also hear from God daily through His Word! As we read the Bible, we begin to see how God responds to things. Doing daily devotions transforms the way we think and the spirit of our mind, and helps us become more like Jesus! S.O.A.P. journaling is a simple and excellent way to both remember and process what God is speaking to you. It’s also a great tool when you want to reflect on and review some of the ‘gems’ that you have received.


While journaling is a very personal time with the Lord, you may want to share some of your daily journaling with your community or spouse, so having your thoughts written out becomes very important. Through discussion, you may be able to look deeper into what God is speaking to you, gain new insight, and even encourage others. 


All you need to begin is a Bible, pen and journal!

How To S.O.A.P

Check out this video: "How to Soap Journal"


S - Scripture

Open your Bible to your reading for the day. Take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, and write it in your journal.


O - Observation

What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you.


A - Application

Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. Write how this scripture can apply to you today.


P - Prayer

This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this scripture, or even a prayer for a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two-way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say! Now, write it out.
