Noah Carries Out His Purpose

Reading in Genesis 7, Noah did the job the Lord told him to do. It took 120 years to build the ark and people had the chance to repent during that whole time. Then the time came and Noah went into the ark along with his family. All male and female of every animal or bird was to enter into the ark to keep their kind alive while the earth was flooded.

For forty days and nights the rain came down but the ark floated on the water as it reached above the highest mountain. Every living thing on dry land was wiped out as the waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.

God gave Noah a purpose and he was self-disciplined so that it was carried out to its conclusion. What purpose has God given you? If you would like to share, please do so in the response/comment box.

To determine the purpose, it begins with prayer so start a prayer list of things you can pray about. Then listen and reflect. Each day with God can be amazing and with the help of technology today, we can organize with the purpose of changing the world for the better.

Lord, we lift you up today and pray for the purpose you have given to each of us. We ask that you provide a clear picture of this purpose and that we follow through with discipline in order to carry it out. Lord it took Noah 120 years to build the ark. We may not live that long but we can start building something for you today. Everything is not just on us; You will help us build it. We can start now and pass it on to future generations. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

    It would seem we didn’t get God’s message the first time.
