Dearly Beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and ever unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Genesis 8:1, “Then God Remembered Noah and every living thing. And all the animals that were with him in the ark. And God made a wind, to pass over the earth. And the waters subsided. “
From the above context we learn that Noah built an ark in obedience to God. Not only his family, but also wild and domestic animals were in the ark. Since God was displeased with the behaviour of the people whom he had created He decided to destroy the entire earth. God was grieved in His heart. But Noah found favour in the eyes of God. Since Noah was a just man, perfect in his generation, God instructed Noah to build an ark to save his family from the oncoming floods. The Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark you and your household for you are righteous before Me.” He also let the animals and every living creature male and female, into the ark and He Himself shut the door of the ark. It rained heavily forty days and forty nights. And the waters covered the earth. The Bible says, God destroyed all living things, which were on the face of the earth. The floods stopped. After one hundred and fifty days, God remembered Noah and His family and all living things. When God spoke to Noah saying, “Go out of the ark, you and your wife, your sons and your sons wives with you.”It was a new beginning for Noah and his family on the face of the earth.
Just as God remembered Noah and his family God remembers you and your family. He wants to protect you from the oncoming danger of this world. So he has decided to come into your house and dwell in the midst of you. So that He will be a wall of fire around you and your children. God wants to save you from the dangers that surround you often and threaten you. Therefore you do not have proper sleep. You are so worried and sick about the happenings in your family. Though the waters covered the face of the earth God protected Noah and his family because He found him righteous. Are you righteous before God? The Bible says, He who walks uprightly and works righteousness, and speaks the truth, in his heart, finds favour and grace in the sight of God.
Today God has come into your house to protect you and your family. God wants to carry you in the Ark called Jesus. So that when storms may rage and winds may blow you will remain well protected under the mighty Hands of God. No waves can swallow you. No enemies can prevail against you. Neither can any sickness harm your life. No disaster will strike you and your family. God protected not only Noah but also his wife and sons and the wives of his sons. What a Good God He is! You can simply rely on Him for your journey in the land of the living. God is making an end to all the turbulences that come against you. Storms and floods cannot destroy you. You are ever in the palm of God’s hands. He remembers your frame. God will send a peaceful wind, to sweep over your family, over your business, over your work spot, and your children and even your ministry. Just as Noah and his family began a new life on the face of this earth after the floods, God wants to give you a new beginning. For God is Alpha and Omega. The beginning and the End. God will nullify all the evil plans of satan that has been conceived by him. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. The Lord says, for I will be a wall of fire around her, and I will be the Glory in her midst. So allow Jesus to reign in your hearts then you shall be safe and prosperous. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord we thank You, for Your hand of protection that maintains us. May we be found righteous before God as Noah was found to be righteous in his generation. We praise You God, the Father for protecting him and his family and all living creatures in the Ark. For shutting the door of the Ark and letting them float until the floods stopped. Thank You Jesus for giving them a new beginning. Give us also a new beginning as we are filled with sorrow and troubles. Relieve us from our struggles and set us free.
