9 This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, the only blameless person living on earth at the time, and he walked in close fellowship with God.
I just want to share something with you all really quick. Ever since I started this blog, my relationship with Jesus grown beyond belief. I want to encourage you to set away time to intentionally and consistently meet with the Lord. It will impact you significantly if you do.
Anyways, on to the text. Here we have, what most of you know as, ‘Noah’s Ark’. I always knew about Noah’s Ark, but never understood the “why” behind it. It has just recently began to make sense as I am teaching some kiddos at NECC. Noah obeyed God. During this time the people were going wild and God was like, “What have I done…” Thankfully Noah had been consistent in his faith and God saved Noah and his family. He gave God hope in a way through his ability to obey consistently.
It is amazing to think about what would have happened if he wasn’t obeying God consistently. We probably wouldn’t be here. God would’ve said, “Forget these people, not even one of them can respect and do what I have commanded of them. See ya!” When we obey consistently, we have the chance to make a change. It may seem small and unnoticed, but God sees everything. Inside and out, He knows your heart behind what you do. And if it is for Him, You are in for a treat.
Consistency brings about good habits. I have said this before, but it all starts with our thoughts. What we think becomes what we do, and what we do becomes who we are. Who do you want to be? Start being consistent in your thoughts. Be positive. Be in conversation with Jesus. Be loving. Be like Jesus.
What can I be more consistent with?
Do I need to be more consistent with Jesus?
Dear Lord, thank you for your consistency with us. We love your relentless and never ending pursuit of us. May we emulate that part of your character more today. Amen.
Have a great day!
