We going to be blogging thru d bible a chapter each day till we read the whole bible :). I got the idea from a friend who sent me a link to join a group of women doing the same thing. The group is called Good Morning girls.
You can follow the group on Facebook,Twitter, Pinterest, Youtube and Instagram under the Profile: Women Living Well
The idea is we read a chapter of the bible each day using the SOAP method (I’ll explain the SOAP method below). We then share our findings together.
S stands for Scripture. Write the scriptures that jump at you while studying
O stands for Observation. Write down any observations from the chapter
A stands for Application. Write down actions from the chapter
P stands for Prayer. Write down prayer points from the chapter.
An example I did for Esther chapter 9
S – V1b: ….on the [very] day that the enemies of the Jews had planned for a massacre of them, it was turned to the contrary and the Jews had rule over those who hated them.
V25: But when Esther came before the king, he issued a decree causing Haman’s evil plot to backfire, and Haman and his sons were impaled on a sharpened pole.
O- 1) what the enemy meant for evil for the Jews, God turned it around for their good. Haman’s plot backfired on him.
2) Even though God was not mentioned in the whole book of Esther, we see his sovereignty at work especially with how things turned around for the Jews.
A- 1) GOD has the ability to turn around everything in my life that the enemy meant for evil. He is sovereign and has all power. I need to trust him and hand over my problems to him
2) I need to remind myself that God is always present and near to me even when I feel He is silent. He is always working out things in the background for my good.
P- GOD pls help me trust you more especially when I feel you are far from me. Pls cause all things to work together for my good.
We will be starting with the book of 1 Peter and as we go along I will send update on what book we will be reading next
I will start a blog each day for each chapter…please feel free to join in the discussion. The aim is to learn from each other as we study the bible. Iron sharpens iron 🙂
I pray the Holy Spirit will strengthen us as we embark on this journey.
I’m excited about what God’s gonna do as we begin to study.
