Our Perfect Father
“Noah was a just and righteous man, blameless among his evil generation and found grace in the eyes of the Lord” (Gen 6:8 AMP)
Nowadays, it’s rather obvious that we’re living in a fallen and sin-sick world. Moreover, we experience exhaustion. At the same time, it’s an uphill climb to overcome anxiety. Then along comes uncertainty and fear. Consequently, we gravitate toward despondency or even hopelessness.
On the other side and more importantly, what we ‘do and think’ wounds the heart of our Creator. Similarly, according to scripture, the people in Noah’s era grieved the heart of God. This resulted in the whole population being infiltrated with sin and corruption.
“The earth was depraved and putrid in God’s sight and the land was filled with violent hatred” (Gen 6:11)
In general, the entire population of Noah’s era trampled roughshod on the heart of God. So much so that He was: ‘sorry’ (grieved, sad, or regretted) that He had made man (Gen 6:7).
Yet on the positive side, Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. Here we glimpse one faithful man who dared to obey God. Therefore, Noah became an instrument in the rescue and preservation of all mankind from total destruction by the flood.
“I will establish my covenant promise with you and your family. They shall come into the ark and live” (Gen 6:18 AMP)
It’s astonishing to me that instead of punishment, God gave humanity a second chance. On numerous occasions throughout history, the Lord sees our desperation and rectifies our understanding. Equally important, Noah prepared an ark by which he condemned the world and its’ sin.
Dear reader, the Lord knows our heartaches and sorrows. Therefore He longs to draw us near to Him so that He may shelter us from the storms of life.
