Today, we conclude our practice SOAP with the P, which is our prayer.
6 Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. (NIV)
The great confidence of David knowing that the Lord’s goodness and love will forever be with him no matter what life brings his way. Furthermore, that confidence proclaims that his eternal dwelling is in the house of the Lord. There are no maybe’s, or what if’s, or if I do this then this will happen. It is simply a bold declaration that the Lord’s goodness and love will never us and we will forever dwell in the house of the Lord.
I must approach God with bold confidence of the blessings and promises God has said are mine! I must stop doubting His word, and stop thinking that I am not good enough. God purchased me with the blood of His only Son, Jesus. That was my price. Nothing more is needed. I am loved by God and will forever dwell in the house of the Lord.
Dear Lord, help me to overcome the doubt that I have when it comes to Your love. Help me to realized that what has been done is the only price that needed to be paid so that I may be blessed with all You want to give me. Help me to overcome the fear of not being good enough for You. And help me to see all that Your house has waiting for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
