“So Noah did everything exactly as God had commanded him.” Genesis 6:22 (NLT)
God had told Noah to build boat, an ark to be exact! He had no idea what it was, but God gave him some pretty specific instructions to get ready for a rain storm that was coming. But he did not know what rain was, because it literally had never rained before! God was asking him to prepare for something that had never occurred on the planet.
God is doing something right now, something that has never happened before. Undoubtedly, those around Noah mocked, scoffed, censored and tried to cancel him, but Noah would not stop believing, trusting, and obeying the Lord, and building a huge boat. Noah knew a flood was coming, but he didn’t have any category to put “flood” in. God is doing something and we have no category to put it in. It is un-categorically new. God is not finished, He is not late. He will do what He will do when it’s time
“And Noah did everything the Lord commanded him.” Genesis 7:5 (NLT)
Did I mention it took Noah 120 years to build this ark? Nothing like this had ever happened before. No one had seen rain, but for 120 years, Noah believed and obeyed. And the people mocked. They knew not and they mocked until the flood came, then they mocked no more!
God’s word, including His promises will never fail! Even if it has never happened before on this planet!!! God is faithful to His promises! Our responsibility right now is to trust, believe and obey! Pray that God you grant you a Noah like faith to stand, believe, trust and obey everything He commands you to do to get ready for this “new” thing! Pray that you would know God like Noah did! Pray this for your pastor, your church leadership and congregation. Ask God to release a Noah-like faith across our nation. Ask God for a Church to look like Noah…
“Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.” Genesis 6:9 (NIV)
