June SOAP: Waiting patiently in difficult situations or failing moments
1. SCRIPTURES: Psalms 40:1-5
- The Psalmist waited patiently for the deliverance out of his sins or failures
- He experienced it and was filled with praise to God for the deliverance
- He declared God's faithfulness and was ready to give testimonies about God's kindness to him
- He sings, "Many will see God's goodness in my life and will put their trust in God"
- What do we do when we have sinned or failed terribly? We actively wait upon the Lord
- What do we do while waiting? We feed on God's character to save/restore/love/deliver
- What does God do when we receive our deliverance? He puts praise unto Him in our mouth
- What is the result? Many will see what He has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the Lord
Lord, let Psalms 40:3 be a daily occurrence in my life. Amen!
