Handwrite Scriptures; 3 Reasons You Should

Do you have a hard time understanding the Bible? Do you want to read the Bible, but end up feeling overwhelmed?

I have to confess...

I struggle with comprehending a lot of what I read in the Bible.

It gets overwhelming for me.

Gives me a headache and then ....

I just give up.

Okay, now, let's talk about writing out the books of the Bible. Yes, you can do it.

You just slow down for those several moments that it takes to write out the verses and things seem to come alive. At least, they do for me. I highly encourage you to try writing out the books of the Bible. You do not have to do it all in one sitting, but it will be so beneficial for you if you take the time to try.

Reasons To Handwrite Scriptures 

1. Revelation 1:9-11 NIV - John wrote them. 

I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus. On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet, which said: “Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea.”

2. Deuteronomy 6:9 NIV - Moses suggested writing them. 

Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

3. Exodus 34:1 NIV - the Lord wrote them. 

The Lord said to Moses, “Chisel out two stone tablets like the first ones, and I will write on them the words that were on the first tablets, which you broke.

The Meaning of  S.O.A.P.

S - scripture - write out the verse(s) that speaks to you.

O - observation - write down anything that you observe in the verse(s).

A - application - write down how the Lord is guiding you, through this 
verse(s) to apply something to your life.
