Welcome to Day 203 of our Life Journal!
Before you comment or read what I have posted, please read the following passages for yourself and complete your own S.O.A.P. exercise… How does this work?
S.O.A.P = Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer
I have completed my reading for today, but will finish my SOAP exercise later this afternoon. God bless! Scott
Isaiah 36 and Isaiah 37 are Isaiah’s version of Hezekiah’s defense against Assyria and his prayer, very similar text as 2 Kings 18 & 19 and 2 Chronicles 32.
Psalms 76, a psalm of Asaph.
1 Peter 1:3, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade, this inheritance is kept in heaven for you…”
23 “For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the living and enduring word of God.”
We have been born again of a seed that is imperishable, to receive an inheritance kept in heaven for us!
(I still can’t believe it… 185,000 Assyrian warriors died as they slept. Guess there’s more than one way to fight a war!)
1 Peter 1:3 “He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade, this inheritance is kept in heaven for you…”
Let’s break this down…
1. A new birth!
2. A living hope!
3. An inheritance that can * N E V E R * perish, spoil or fade!
4. It’s safely stored in heaven for you, and me!
Now that’s good stuff!
I think I’m just going to marinate in that thought today… (Even though it’s yesterday’s reading!)
A living hope…
Thank you Lord for the inheritance you have stored for us! You are so good!
