Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Genesis 7:1, “The LORD then said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation”. In this passage we see that God protects the righteous.
God tells Noah to go into the ark because his family was righteous in the sight of the Lord. God has the responsibility to protect the righteous man and his family. During the time of Noah, people were unrighteous. They did not turn from their wicked ways. God’s anger came upon those people. Amidst this situation, there was just one family who lived a righteous life. It was the family of Noah. God commanded Noah to build an ark to protect him and his family. After Noah finished building the ark, God told him that he and his family (Noah, his wife, sons and the daughter-in-laws) could dwell in it. This was a very great privilege that the Lord gave to Noah and his family. When every other family lived an unrighteous life, it was only Noah’s family that lived a righteous life. They lived in a land surrounded with sinful people, yet they saved their righteousness. That was why the Lord had the responsibility to protect Noah and his family from destruction. God Himself sent them into the ark and locked the door. This means that, when destruction awaits the righteous man and his family, God Himself will put them into an ark and will seal the doors, because no man can open the doors that the Lord shuts.
Dearly beloved, the blessings that a righteous man receives is simply amazing. Likewise, when you are righteous and lead a life pleasing in the sight of God, He will surely protect you from all destructions that await you. The Lord will protect you. You are precious in the sight of God. He cannot wait and see you being destroyed. The Lord will put a hedge around you and will always be your shield. You do not have to worry about anything. God has the responsibility to protect His children who are righteous and blameless in His sight. Lead a righteous life and receive the blessings of the Lord.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord I pray that You may be with Your children and lead them into righteousness. May they turn away from all their unrighteous ways. You are a God who protects those who live a life pleasing in Your sight. Father, I pray that they may be a crown of glory in Your hands. May they lead a righteous life and let Your hands of protection be upon them all the days of their lives. In Jesus name we pray,
