PSALMS IN 30 DAYS: CHAPTER 1 – CHAPTER 5

Today we are reading chapters 1 – 5.

I have decided that I would take 20-30 minutes out of each of my morning to dedicate to reading through the book of Psalms. I think that there is something so relaxing when putting pen to paper and writing my thoughts through this study out. So that is what I am doing. I will be starting everyday with a prayer; thanking God for the blessings that he has given me and putting my prayer request in as well. I will then proceed with my reading followed by 3-5 minutes where I mediate on His word; opening my mind and heart to the message that God wants me to receive. I then end with prayer. So here is my S.O.A.P. for chapters 1-5.

SCRIPTURE: Psalms 5:11

But let all who take refuge in You rejoice; let them shout for joy forever. May You shelter them, and may those who love Your name boast about You.

OBSERVATION:

Once we trust in God whole heartedly, once we give ourselves over to Him 100%, His blessings will rain down on us and we will know happiness like NEVER before.

APPLICATION:

I have always tried to take matters into my own hands. I have always been afraid to trust anyone 100%, and I have even been too scared to turn everything over to God 100%. I’ve been impatient with the time He takes to answer my prayer request and even frustrated at how He answers those prayers once they are answered. I’ve never really known what “peace” was.

In the scripture from today I was shown that if I let go and let God do what He already knows is best for me, then I will no longer not have a reason to rejoice everyday. He has already shown me how powerful He is, even with me not letting go 100%. Just imagine what He can do in me, and for me, once I surrender everything; all of me, all of my problems, all of my worries, and all of my fears. He has shown me what He is capable of, so why haven’t I surrendered yet?

I want to feel the love and joy that so many Christians do. I want Him to shelter me. I want to be able to tell EVERYONE about the blessings that He has given to me. I want to have faith in Him that is unwavering and unquestioning. I want Him to use me to touch other lives and save other souls. I want to share His word to anyone who is willing to listen. I want to let go and let Him.

I NEED to let go and let Him.

PRAYER

Dear God,

I know that I am not perfect. I am far from it. I cause myself to be stressed because I allow my faith in Your greatness to falter because I am afraid that You will not help me. I am afraid to trust in You because I am afraid that You have not forgiven me for the many wrongs that I have done in my past.

God, this is NOT the type of daughter to You that I want to be. I want to let go. I want to trust. I don’t want to hurt anymore and I don’t want to be scared.

I want to share many personal stories of Your greatness to anyone who will listen. I want to share my faith in You with others. I want to be sheltered by You for as long as You will have me.

Please continue to work with me and in me. Please don’t loose hope and faith in me.

Daddy I’m trying.

In Jesus name I pray. Amen

Before I even started my S.O.A.P. reading for today I asked for four things in my prayers. I asked IN FAITH and I have already received the answers to two of those prayers. God is good. All of the time. He has been so good to me already and it is only the first day of the Psalms read through. Already He is working miracles.

What did you get from today’s reading?

Please share in the comments or feel free to post your own S.O.A.P. in the comments. I hope that everyone is having a blessed day. Please uplift all of your fellow sisters who are reading through Psalms in your daily prayers.

  1. Thank you for sharing your S.O.A.P.! Reading through your application and prayer were very powerful to me…I had tears in my eyes before I finished the prayer. I see so much of myself in your words. It’s helpful to see that other people have the same struggles that I have, but also desire the same things from God.

    I won’t do a full breakdown, but I just wanted to point out a couple of scriptures that stood out for me most on Day 1:

    Psalms 3:3-4
    “But you are a shield around me, O Lord; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head. To the Lord I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill.”

    Psalms 4:1
    “Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.”

    My brother gave me the first verse to read when I was going through some really hard times, and it has always stuck with me since then. It really reminds me that I can put my confidence in God…that he will protect me, and that he hears my cries. I’m reminded that I’m not alone and that if if I lift my eyes to him, he will answer my prayers and see me through. It gives me a sense of security and comfort, knowing that God is able to relieve me and lift my burdens. I don’t have to carry them alone.
