Dearly Beloved, 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 7:7,16, “And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah. And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the Lord shut him in.”
From the above context we learn that God called Noah and asked him to build an ark. The Lord was hurt to see that, the earth was corrupt, before God, and the earth was filled with violence. For all flesh had corrupted their way, on the earth. The Lord was sorry that He made man on the earth. And He was grieved in his heart. So God decided to destroy the man from the face of the earth. During that time God found Noah to be a just and perfect man in his generation. So God asked Noah to build an ark to safeguard Noah and his family, from the oncoming floods. He instructed him how he should build the ark and also he saw that every kind of birds and living creatures, both male and female, should be let into the ark, to save them also from the floods. God was not only mindful of mankind but also all living creatures. So Noah made an Ark and did all that the Lord had commanded because he had found grace in the sight of God.
God said to Noah, “Come into the ark.”’ As soon as Noah and his wife, his sons, and his sons wives and all living creatures entered into the ark God shut the door of the ark by Himself so that no one could enter into the ark during the disastrous floods. Just as God shut Noah into the ark, you too were shut within your house, in order that you may be protected from the horrible disease, Corona, that killed millions of people across the world. God was merciful to you and your family. He did not wish to destroy you. Many of you reading this message were quite interested to go to school, college , to office and even to church but you couldn’t go during that period of time. All were compelled to stay indoors. The Bible says, waters prevailed on the earth for nearly 150 days, during the time of Noah. God had permitted Noah 150 days of lock down inside the ark, to keep him protected from the floods.
Thus God has saved you from Corona Virus. He has kept you alive. Praise the Lord. Today schools, colleges, offices and even churches have been opened. But you now feel, wouldn’t it be better if you had a few more days of vacation so that you could remain at home and enjoy yourself. You should realize why God allowed Corona and how God kept you well protected through Lock down Period. God is ever mindful of you and your family. You might have incurred great loss in your business or all your loans are yet to be paid which you have borrowed from the bank and from other sources. But God who saved you from Corona and has given you life will also help you overcome the fallen economic condition. He will surely cause you to escape from the poor economic situation. He will stabilize and establish your life again. So don’t lose heart. God says, “ In this world you will have troubles, but be cheerful, for I have overcome the world.” Since God has overcome the world, He will help you to overcome your problems however big they may be. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Dear Lord, we thank you for saving us from the Corona and keeping us alive. We thank You Father, for helping us to overcome all the losses we have incurred in our business and thus help us to prosper. Help us to put our faith in You Lord. Teach us to be perfect and righteous before You, like Noah. And thereby receive grace in Your sight.
