Remember Noah – Genesis 6:22

Noah did everything just as God commanded him.

It seems many of us don’t really think much about this statement. It’s almost as if we glaze right over it. Let’s think about it for a moment. It says he did everything YHWH commanded him. Everything. Now remember, that “everything” included building a huge boat for a hundred years. A hundred years. That’s longer than the vast majority of people live today let alone pursue and obey. So he obeyed YHWH in doing everything He told him longer than we will even live. Let that sink in for a second.

Now of course, we can say the people lived longer back then. Absolutely. That’s true. Yet, even still, that doesn’t belittle the fact that Noah was faithful to YHWH for all those years. Do you seek that kind of faithfulness? How do you respond when YHWH tells you to do something? When He tells you to do something, do you do it or do you complain in saying it’s too big? Do you complain in saying it’ll take too long? If so, remember Noah.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!

God saw that all flesh corrupted His way upon the earth, but Noah found favor in the eyes of God because He knew Noah could be trusted to follow the way of God and do everything God commanded him. Noah lived by the spirit and not by the flesh and he and his household were saved.

I have heard it said that grace came only in the New Testament...well what about this verse?? I guess we can just through that verse out too!

Genesis 6:8 "But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord."

Howdy sir simms50! That's so true, plus he had everyone coming against him, I'm sure they were trying to talk him out of his mission, that had to be tough.

You know they had to...for one thing he was telling him that water was going to fall from the sky and up until that point it had not happened yet!!!

Exactly, they had to think he was mad!
