Of all the people in the world, God chose to personally care for Noah and his family. If that doesn’t warm your heart, the wood in your heart’s stove is wet.
Noah was a good man who placed all his faith and trust in God. He raised his family to believe in God and His law. It is worth it to follow the Lord, and the story of Noah supports that truth. God led Noah and his family and saved them from the flood. He also got male and female animals on board the ark to save them and see that they reproduced so life would go on after the flood. I don’t know of a person who would have done things so creatively! God works out all our problems in similar ways, doesn’t He? I love the creativity of my LORD!
Do you suppose some of the animals who boarded the ark at first got bored and said, “God, shut the door!” – ??? How funny! I have so many questions, like – why did flies and skeeters have to survive? Why did rats and spiders have to survive? Sigh… I don’t think we’ll ever get an answer to those questions.
It’s a lesson about trusting God no matter what. Every family should build and ark for themselves, secure in God’s Word and His way.
I like to think that God is protecting me and my family just as He protected Noah and His family. As we follow Him, He blesses us in such marvelous ways! 🙂
