What is S.O.A.P.?
S.O.A.P. stands for Scripture, Observation, Application and Prayer. It is a way of getting more out of your time in God's word.
How does it work?
It's quite simple. When you sit for your daily quiet time read the bible as you normally would with one simple difference. Underline or make note of any verses that jump out at you with special significance. This is the basis for diving deeper and using S.O.A.P.
Scripture - Write out the verse or verses that stuck out to you in your reading.
Observation - What did you observe about the scripture that struck you. This can be one sentence or a whole book.
Application - How can you apply the observation so that it affects your life today.
Prayer -Write out a prayer to God based on what you just learned and ask him to help you apply this truth in your life.
That's all there is to it!
