Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming
Armed with the blueprints of the ark, Noah went to work. In light of the coming flood, Noah did not delay to gather the gopher wood and get started.
Noah had enough faith to believe that if God said it, He would bring down the rain. He had enough reverence to take action on the plans God had given him.
He must have enlisted the help of his three sons as he built the mammoth boat that would save his family and the animals of the earth. Their father’s faith and fear must have been contagious. His devotion and determination convinced them.
Some have doubted the success of Noah’s ministry. All around him, his neighbors continued to eat, drink, and celebrate life’s events. How they must have laughed and scorned the crazy man whose whole life had been derailed by this building project!
But on the day that the storm clouds gathered, the people that Noah loved the most walked into the boat with him. God closed the door on the ark of their salvation.
Let’s believe in the words of God and get to work on the plans that He has placed in our hearts. Like Noah, let’s be undeterred in our work for the Savior. If we do not grow weary in doing good, we will reap a reward.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Trust in the Author and Finisher of your faith. He orchestrates every step that you take. Your sure reward awaits!
