Intentionally Focused – 2/15/14

Image Day 27  of the GoodMorningGirls.org bible study called, Intentionally Focused.  there is no assigned reading on the weekends but I just love getting into the word each and every day so I chose to read John 14:15-18 today and picked passage 15-17 to SOAP.  I pray it helps me look up to Him more!

Today’s SOAP:

S-cripture:

If you love Me, keepMy commandments.  And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever—the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.  ~John 14:15-17

O-bservations:

Jesus has promised us a Helper.  That Helper is the Holy Spirit that lives inside everyone, but you will only be able to know Him if you are living the life God’s called you to and following Jesus Christ.

A-pplication:

Helpers…  we all need help but for some of us (cough, cough… ME) it’s hard to humble ourselves and ADMIT that we need help!  I had a hard time about a month or so ago.  This group was going great and I was really focused and planning stuff and very organized.  I started perceiving I was going at it ALONE.  My family wasn’t on the same page thus not helping me.  I became discouraged, unmotivated and began to think I couldn’t do it.  I started thinking as the world does and was no longer receiving the help from the Holy Spirit.  I began to PRAY!  I feel connected and feel His Help.  It’s always there you don’t need to ask for it, you need to ask to know it!

P-rayer:

Dear God, thank-you for Your Son who died on the cross so that You will always be with me and help me.  Please help me to live my life so I always know You are here.  Please help me  not to distance myself from You by living as the rest of the world.  Help me to be different…  what you’ve called me to be!  I pray this in Jesus’ precious name, AMEN!
