S.O.A.P. - Saturday, 1/16/10
Scripture - Genesis 26:24 - "And the Lord appeared unto him the same night, and said, I am the God of Abraham thy father: fear not, for I am with thee, and will bless thee, and multiply thy seed for my servant Abraham's sake."
Observation - The Lord told Isaac He would pour out His blessings upon him. He would do so because of Abraham's faithfulness. God would continue His favor over Abraham with Abraham's seed. Isaac, therefore, was a recipient of God's approval of Abraham, his father.
Application - I can live my life in such a way as to cause others to be blessed!
Prayer - Father, first, I want to honor You. I want to be that special friend to You as was Abraham. Second, Lord, my prayer is to have such a walk with You, such a relationship, that others reap the benefit. Let my life cause an outpour of blessings on those around me. Lord, let it be said that You will bless others, "for my servant Adrienne's sake"! Wow! Hear my heart and cries as I lift up others in prayer: for salvation, provision, strength, comfort, joy, deliverance, etc.--and answer, my God. Thank You for that kind of favor, Lord--and for answered prayer, not just for my benefit, but for the benefit of others. Thank You, Jesus. In Your name, amen!
