S O A P Devotion: 1 January 2017
“But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night. They are like trees planted along the riverbank, bearing fruit each season. Their leaves never wither, and they prosper in all they do.”
Psalms 1:2-3 NLT
Why are the righteous blessed? They are blessed because they love (delight in) the Word of God. If we love the Word of God, we will meditate on it day and night! Then, we will be like trees planted by the rivers, trees that are fruitful – bearing fruit in each season. They are evergreen, always fresh (as their leaves never wither) and they prosper in all their ways!
In the new year, we all desire to be blessed in every way and see success (prosper) in all we do. The bible reminds us that the foundation of success is the Word of God (the bible). Our “Back to Basics” Commitment No.1 is to “Pray and Read the Bible every day”! Let’s recommit ourselves to Pray & Read the Bible everyday! The bible is life changing, it has the power to bless us in all we do! It has the power to make us fruitful and successful in all our ways !
Father, I thank You for Your word! Let me be found among those who love Your Word (the Bible) so much that I will meditate on it day and night. I recommit myself to pray and read the bible every day. Anoint my eyes, anoint me in every way so that I can see the truth of your word and be blessed in every way! In Jesus name, Amen!
