October 8, 2016: SOAP #2501: Ezra 9-10; Psalm 131; Luke 21

Scripture: Luke (NIV) 21:31 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.
32 “I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.
33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Observation: So many of the things previously mentioned are happening now in the world. We can be assured that God's kingdom is soon to be established on the earth. While earthly and heavenly things come and go, there is one thing that remains"God's Word.

Application: The more of God's Word I have in my heart, the more peace and security I have. The more of God's Word I have in my mind, the more I understand what is happening around me. The more I put into practice the principles of God's word, the more stability I have in times of trouble. The more I share God's Word with those around me, the greater is the effect I have in their lives.

Prayer Heavenly Father, my life is based on Your Word. It is underneath me as a sure foundation. It is in me as the preserver. It is easily seen around me in all of Your creation. Thank you for Your Word! Amen
