13 And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make yourself an ark of gopherwood; make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with pitch. 15 And this is how you shall make it: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. 16 You shall make a window for the ark, and you shall finish it to a cubit from above; and set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third decks. 17 And behold, I Myself am bringing floodwaters on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall die. 18 But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall go into the ark—you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you. 19 And of every living thing of all flesh you shall bring two of every sort into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds after their kind, of animals after their kind, and of every creeping thing of the earth after its kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive. 21 And you shall take for yourself of all food that is eaten, and you shall gather it to yourself; and it shall be food for you and for them.” 22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.
Here we see God giving instructions to Noah to build the ark, and Noah did what God told him to do. If I’m Noah, I’m thinking…..Huh??? Is this some sort of joke. See it had never even rained at this time. Noah knew that everyone would be ridiculing him and his family. Everyone would think he was completely nuts! However, Noah obeyed God. He had “faith”. Hebrews 11:6 states: ” But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is”. We have to have that same faith to follow what Jesus has instructed us to do even when it doesn’t make sense. Many individuals of this world attack, and undermine the Christian faith. It has been removed from our schools, our government (even though this is the foundation of the constitution), and even our homes. The harsh reality is this….Just as God closed the door on the ark, Jesus will also close the door on the opportunity to have a relationship with Him. The end will come. The question is… Where will you be? For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God (Romans 14:11). And then He will say one of two things to you: Well done , good and faithful servant (Matthew 25:21) or ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’(Matthew 7:23). The choice is yours. Today I choose Jesus. He makes all things new. I am living proof of this. So if you’re confused, lost, broken, or just tired and don’t know what to do. Just say Jesus!
