November 1 – Praise and Gratitude Day 1

In November, we are spending 30 days in praise and gratitude of our Almighty God as we prepare ourselves for the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. This reading plan comes from Sarah Ann at the Proverbs 31 Mentor blog (https://proverbs31mentor.com/).

You can join us in this study by reading today’s scripture below and journaling about it using SOAP (click on the “What’s SOAP?” link above to learn more). Below today’s scripture is an example SOAP from our team. Feel free to share your SOAP in the comments too! Whether it’s your first time reading the Bible or you’ve been doing daily devotions for decades, God will use this One Thing to speak to you.

I am thankful for God’s character — Faithful

Scripture:

Deuteronomy 7:9 – Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations,…
Psalm 33:4 – For the word of the Lord is upright, and all his work is done in faithfulness.
Psalm 36:5 – Your steadfast love, O Lord, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds.

SOAP Note

God is Faithful | DOT Group @A2

Scripture

Psalm 36:5

Observation

In these three verses, we see that God is faithful. He’s true to His word and He’s never going to leave us. But in Psalm 36:5, we also get to see that there are no limitations to His faithfulness – it goes beyond our comprehension, all the way to the heavens.

Application

As followers of Christ, we can use examples of God’s character for how to live our own lives. If God is faithful, so should we be. And when we reach hard times, we can look back to situations where He pulled us through before to remind us that He’s with us and working on it. We need to be patient and trust His timing.

Prayer

Dear God, thank You for being so immeasurably faithful to us. You’re awesome, we love You! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
