Noah, a man of faith
Genesis 7:5 And Noah did according to all that the LORD commanded him.
6 Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters were on the earth.
7 So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood.
Noah, in my opinion, doesnt get enough credit as a great man of faith. He did all God commanded him. That alone is huge. I cant say this about myself! He was 600 years into life, never experience torrential rain, yet believes God will "flood" the world, what is a flood? Abraham lasted 11 yrs before trying to help God out! 25 yrs for the promised son. Noah walked with God! I sometimes get in despair, wondering, am I doing any good for the LORD. God, I know You can do mighty things, save anybody, why not now? But He reminds me, thats not up to me. Jeremiah had zero known converts. Powerful voice for God. Noah tops it, 120 yrs, none believed his message of repentance for judgment is coming, from God but his wife, 3 sons and their wives. That will work on a preacher for sure to see who he trusts & where he leans. I wonder what conversations Noah & the LORD had over this time. Probably some of the same ones I have with Him due to my lack of seeing the complete picture as God sees. However, Im committed for the long haul.
