Psalms 3:5 SOAP


Psalm 3:5 (NASB)

5 I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the LORD sustains me.

No matter how many times my soul gets beat down, the LORD sustains my spirit and supports me on getting back up and fighting the fight.

When life throws me a curve ball, I have to remember that the LORD is there supporting me through it all. I have to remember to fully lean on Him.

Dear LORD – please help me to remember you in times of strife. Lord, God please remind me that I am stronger with you on my side. Lord please help me lean on you fully. Amen.

Psalms4:6 SOAP

Day 2 of Psalms in 60 days.

Psalm 4:7 (New American Standard Bible)

    7You have put gladness in my heart,
         More than when their grain and new wine abound.

God puts gladness on our hearts more than material objects.

Remember that the next newest thing isn’t better then the gladness God puts in my heart. As gladness with material objects is temporary and short term; God’s gladness is everlasting. 

Dear LORD – Thank you for the wonderful scripture this afternoon! Thank you O God for reminding me that you are the one who puts the true gladness in my heart, not these tangible items here on Earth. Amen.

additional scriptures referenced to this one:

Psalm 97:11

    11Light is sown like seed for the righteous
         And gladness for the upright in heart.

Psalm 97:12

    12Be glad in the LORD, you righteous ones,
         And give thanks to His holy name.

Acts 14:17

 17and yet He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good and gave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness.”
