“There is only one thing worth being concerned about. Mary has discovered it, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:42 (NLT) The heart of this ministry is to inspire a love for God’s Word and encourage the discipline of daily Bible reading and SOAP journaling. These are a few of our SOAP notes from today’s reading. We encourage you to read and journal on your own first, then join us in conversation about what God revealed to YOU today.

So They Would Know | Kimi Miller

S~ “And the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord when I stretch out my hand against Egypt and bring the Israelites out of it.” Exodus 7:5 (NIV)

O~ The Lord is rescuing His people Israel from Egypt. Yet, here it says, “and the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord.” Clearly, God’s plan reached beyond His people. I believe even here we can see glimpses of God’s love for the world.

A~ It’s easy for me to get caught up in my own story – to forget about the other characters. But each one matters – especially to God. Just like the Israelites to the Egyptians, God may be using my life to reach those who don’t know Him. God’s plan is much bigger than I can imagine. His plan captures the details of eternity – my plans often barely grasp what I can see. But He sees beyond time. And whatever I’m going through, it helps to give me hope knowing my story isn’t being written for me alone to read. It’s meant to tell a story even after I’m gone.

P~ So starting today, what’s my story, God? Help me to see and recognize each character and Your love and purpose in all of it.
