Luke Chapter 4 – My Study Notes

Luke_19-10

S.O.A.K. method – Scripture which speaks to my hear, observation, application and kneel in prayer.

S: 13 And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.

O: Jesus is tempted at his weakest moment. He is hungry and tired. However, Jesus still preaches the word of God. As the word is his shield against the devil.

Deuteronomy 8:3 And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.

He tells Satan to get behind him.

James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you).

A: Satan uses our own desires against us in hopes of doing wrong. (

James 1:13,14 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

We may even tempt God and question him.

1 Corinthians 10:9 Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.

God may test us but never to appeal us to evil.

Hebrews 11:17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son.

We need to be strong in the word as Satan may leave us for a short while and work on someone else’s heart and lives but he returns again and again.

K: Lord, I seek your will and your word today to remind me of how Satan tempts us and tries to trick us into seeing something wrong as good. I pray I can be better equipped with scripture to help me fight off those who are evil and against me. Amen.

May you continue to search the word of our living God and not lean unto your own understanding.

Luke Chapter 3 – My Study Notes

Luke_19-10

S.O.A.K.  Scripture which speaks to my heart, observation, application and kneel in prayer

Chap 3

S: 23-38 For me I love the genealogy of Mary.

O: This is a means of a scientific fact that proves this is not a made up story.

A: Many times I will hear nonbelievers state something about how can you believe a book written years ago and how do you not know it’s just a bunch of made up stories. The Holy Bible is a historical preserved book. That in itself gives me the goosebumps because I own something so valuable that I can’t even put a price on it.

K: Lord, thank you for preserving your word for all who want to read and know you better. I continue to lift up the names of the ladies in our group and pray you would touch their hearts to read your word everyday. Even if it’s just a verse but something so they will start to get to know you better and feel the love and blessings you will provide. Our lives seem to be busy and distractions seem to get in the way, but I pray each one of the ladies would take time and set it aside just for you. Jesus died for each of us so we would not spend eternity away from you. For me, one way to show you how much I am thankful and grateful is reading your word each and everyday. With love and thanks I give you all praise, glory and honor Lord. Amen.

May you continue to search the word of our living Saviour and not lean unto your own understanding.

 

1 Samuel 21 – My Study Notes

1-samuel

S.O.A.K. method – Scripture which speaks to my  heart, Observe, Application and Kneel in prayer.

 

S:2 And David said unto Ahimelech the priest, The king hath commanded me a business, and hath said unto me, Let no man know any thing of the business whereabout I send thee, and what I have commanded thee: and I have appointed my servants to such and such a place.

O: Here we see David is afraid. Not only is David afraid for his life but he is afraid the truth will end up getting him killed thus he lies. Instead of going into the tabernacle and telling the truth he lies.

A: I can recall several times out of fear I have lied. David forgot so very quickly he had just trusted in the Lord fully in defeating Goliath. Now he is afraid and lies and this will create problems as we will read soon in another chapter. Fear can be crippling and lead us to forget the many times God has been right by our side the entire step or process.

K: Father help me to remember all the times you have been with me and held me and gave me the strength when I thought I was alone. Remind me to not let fear guide me in the wrong direction. Continue to protect my words so they are pleasing to you and are words not of fear but of truth.

May you continue to lean not unto your own understanding but to search the word of a living God.
