Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, thank you for recording in the Bible Noah’s example of living a godly, obedient life. His story illustrates that when evil is all around me, I can still have a good relationship with You. Although I am far from perfect, by following Noah’s example I can find what he did in Genessis 6:8. “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” I ask that You teach me how to listen to You like Noah did. You gave him detailed instructions on how to build the ark and showed him what was needed to care for his family and the many animals during their time on the ark. Genesis 6:21 “And you shall take for yourself of all the food that is eaten, and you shall gather it to yourself; and it shall be food for you and for them.”
Develop in me a trust in You and Your Word like Noah had. It must have been difficult for him to trust for so many years that he was hearing correctly and following Your exact instructions. But he did, and I should also. Genesis 6:22 “Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.” Direct me to have the unwavering faith of Noah when I follow Your commands to me.
Thank you for the great lesson I can learn from this story that when You speak through Your Word and Spirit, I should listen, follow, trust, and obey. Thank you for the physical reminder of this story that comes when You show a beautiful rainbow in the sky, signifying that You made a covenant that there will never be a worldwide flood again. Genessis 9:13 “I set my rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.“
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
