Hebrews 11:7 (ESV)

By Faith

By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.


Could you imagine God telling you to build an ark that is a long way from water?  No way to get the ark to water… no trucks, semi’s, etc…  And because of the ridiculousness of it… everyone is laughing and mocking you.  The world thinks you are crazy and a lunatic.  This is a reflection of someone building an ark as well as that they believe in God.  Has your faith ever come under attack because it does not line up with the ways of the world?  We are living in days today where the people chase the ways of the world and ridicule God and the church.  Well… hang in there!  Noah, his wife, Shem, Ham, and Japheth and their wives all survived while the world was drowned.  I’m not saying Noah had the last laugh, or that we will at the Second Coming.  It is not a laughing matter.  It is a serious matter.  Believers will go to heaven and unbelievers will go to hell.


I pray: O Lord, help me to keep my focus on you even when the world has turned against you.  You are my hope and Salvation.  Help me to stay on track when the world has derailed.  Amen.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
