By following the daily reading guide in this pamphlet, you will complete the entire Bible in one year. Use this to spend quality time in prayer with the Lord as well. Be sure to not only talk to the Lord, but also remember to listen for His voice to speak. He can speak to you through the reading of the Word.
Do not get legalistic in your devotional time. If you miss one day of reading, that’s okay. If you get behind, just begin reading that day’s reading and move forward from there.
Many people enjoy journaling about what the Holy Spirit has been speaking to them during their Word time. Here are some helpful suggestions on how to journal. It is based upon an acronym called: S.O.A.P
Here is how it works: You’ll need three items (Bible, Pen & Journal) to S.O.A.P. each day!
S for Scripture
Open your bible to the reading of your choice, and take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, and write it in your journal.
O for Observation
What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture? Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you. Paraphrase and write this Scripture down in your own words in your journal.
A for Application
Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, revelation of a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. Write how this Scripture can apply to you today.
P for Prayer
This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this Scripture, or it may be a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two-way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say! Then, write it out.
S.O.A.P. is a great way for you to read the bible without having the stress of “finding something to read.” It is a great way for you to memorize scripture and write down your thoughts on a specific passage you read!
