Day ONE: Aug 9-15

The Psalms allow us to connect with the prayers, laments, praises, and worship of Jesus Followers across time and space.  These were the regular prayers Jesus would have prayed Himself while he was on earth! We pray you are blessed as you spend time in the Psalms.

1 The LORD is king! He is robed in majesty.
Indeed, the LORD is robed in majesty and armed with strength.
The world stands firm
and cannot be shaken.
2 Your throne, O LORD, has stood from time immemorial.
You yourself are from the everlasting past.
3 The floods have risen up, O LORD.
The floods have roared like thunder;
the floods have lifted their pounding waves.
4 But mightier than the violent raging of the seas,
mightier than the breakers on the shore—
the LORD above is mightier than these!
5 Your royal laws cannot be changed.
Your reign, O LORD, is holy forever and ever

Psalm 93 (NLT)

As a reminder, here are our steps for S.O.A.P.:

  1. Find a quiet place and read the SCRIPTURE of the day. Read it again. Read it slowly. Read it out loud!
  2. What OBSERVATIONS did you make? What does this passage teach you about God or yourself? Are there any calls to action? Do you have any questions?
  3. How will you make APPLICATION of this scripture and live your life differently today in light of what you just read? Be specific!
  4. Let it marinate. Take some time for PRAYER – thank God, confess any shortcomings, and ask to be empowered. Sit for a few moments and see if God has anything else for you.
