When God had Noah and his crew safely on board, he sent that forty day flood to destroy everything and everyone that didn’t have a boarding pass.
Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.” (Genesis 7:4, NIV)
Again and again the Bible says that Noah just did what God told him to do.
Noah did everything just as God commanded him. (Genesis 6:22, NIV)
And Noah did all that the Lord commanded him. (Genesis 7:5, NIV)
Confident of your obedience, I write to you, knowing that you will do even more than I ask. (Philemon 1:21, NIV)
How are we doing in that department?
Prayer – Lord, whether we sink or swim, we want to be on your side. Amen
