Teach Yourself

If you have ever taught something, you have discovered that the teacher usually learns more than the student.  Why? Because the teacher has to be able to communicate the subject.  In the process of communicating ideas, one quickly discovers if their comprehension of the subject is complete.  In the same way, when we write our devotional thoughts out in words, we really engage and internalize what God is revealing to us.

I believe that the greatest benefit to writing out my devotional thoughts in a SOAP journal is that everyday such journaling cause minor course corrections in the way I think, aligning my thoughts, attitudes and heart with that of the Lord.  Writing out my thoughts forces me to organize and communicate what would otherwise be floating around in my mind.
