Genesis 7:5-6; “5.So Noah did everything the Lord commanded Him. 6. He was 600 years old when the flood came” (TLB)
Hey!!! I would like to take a few lines to say a big THANK YOU! Thank you for every Tuesday, I pray you continue to be blessed and be a blessing to others in Jesus name, amen.
Today’s text, Genesis 7:5-6 points out two very important things; first is OBEDIENCE and the other is PATIENCE and what people generally understand to be waiting. You know how some of us have a long list of amazing people we have read of in the bible that we just want to get to heaven and meet them yeah, I know I have that list. Some of them we want to salute, some we have questions for, some we want to have long conversations with under the tree of life just chilling and some we just want to hug and say well done. Noah for me, is one of those people I want to hug and say well done to, from Noah I have learnt that even when it don’t make sense just obey.
I’m basically just here to encourage you because I could go on and on about Noah but here’s the deal, don’t just look at this as any other bible story why is she making a big deal out of it. It took a 100 years for the flood to come, a 100???? C’mon, most people can’t wait for pizza for an hour, we just conclude there’s something wrong with the customer service system but this guy waited a 100 years, times and seasons past for a 100 years before the promise finally came, that’s huge!
What is that thing that you kinda sorta gave up asking and trusting God for? Note that Noah didn’t just waste time, He obeyed and did not some, or parts but everything God said and wore his patience cap high and proud till the day the promise came. Don’t give up on God because He is the controller of time and your reproductive, productive, whatever clock means nothing to him, God can stop time just for you. He has not forgotten!
Why not wait a little longer, say for a second, a minute, an hour, a day, a week, a year, a decade……. Hold on, God will come through for you in a bit.
GRACE and PEACE.
