I’ve often heard that “the devil is in the details”. I would like to submit to you that this is not so when dealing with the issues of life. I propose that if God spent the time to shape us from the inside and out, before the womb, He then knows us from the first stitch to the last. Everything in our lives were laid out by Him. Every day from our creation to the end are known by Him. If we were wonderfully and fearfully made, then he knows every bone in our body, every thought and every pain. This is the depth of how God understands what makes us tick. Therefore, when it comes to the details of my life, challenges, joys and pain, I will begin looking for God in the details. Maybe this is why I should be still, and know.
SOAP stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. Read a chapter in the Bible and pick out a key verse that speaks to you. Then, write an observation of that what you think that verse is saying. Next, write how you can apply what you observed. Lastly, write a prayer that asks God for guidance to seek His will in applying what you have read and written.
