Events of the Bible: The Flood- Weekly Devotion

Hi everyone and happy Monday!
 
 
What we are Learning This Week:
This past week we were supposed to be reading Genesis 6-9. This chapter talked about the flood. I feel that this is a universally accepted event because science does prove that there was a flood that covered the whole earth. There were shells found on top of mountains etc... So we know that this happened, but do we know why? God looked down on the Earth and saw that man's every intent was wicked and evil. Noah however, found favor in the Lord and was instructed to build a giant ark (ship) and fill it with the male and female of every species along with his family. For forty days and forty nights, the skies opened with rain and flooded the earth destroying all other men. After the flood, God established a promise with Noah that He would never flood the earth again and gave man the rainbow as the sign of the covenant. So now every time you see the rainbow you can think of the many promises and might of our God.
 
Relating it to Your Life:
Well we know that a flood covered the earth because scientists have found artifacts but how did I know this whole Noah thing happened? If this didn't happen, the human race would be extinct along with the animals. What does this have to do with you now? Well do you think that people looked at Noah building this huge boat for over 100 years and didn't once call him crazy? Of course they did!! He looked insane at the time but he was following Gods instructions and it paid off wouldn't you say? God may instruct us to do things that sound crazy at times but you never know in that moment the long term benefits of following his will. Maybe that is going to a mission trip to help others in a country far away, maybe that is reaching out to your next door neighbor and inviting them to church; maybe it is trying to go to a church yourself. You never know what great things God has in store for you unless you follow what he says, regardless of how crazy or whack it may seem :) This week I challenge you to do what God lays out for you regardless of how crazy it may seem. I will join you. I am excited to see what the outcome is.
