Dearly Beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious life giving word of the Lord, for today is from the book of Hebrews 11:7, “By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith.”
In this passage from the Bible, we see how by faith Noah being divinely warned by God saved his family. Enoch was the great grandfather of Noah. We can see that the same faith found in Enoch was also found in Noah. We read that this Noah also walked with God (Genesis 6:9). He saved his family from the floods as he heeded God’s warning about it. He did not question or argue with God about His instructions for building the ark but fully trusted Him and built the ark. (Genesis 6:9-22).
And because Noah implicitly obeyed God, his family was saved, and Noah was found to be righteous and integrous in the eyes of God. Even in our life many times we receive warning from God. Perhaps you might have ignored them and therefore faced many struggles. When we pay heed to the warning that God gives us, and trust in His word, our family will be protected.
I am well acquainted with Dr Arivazhagan from Madurai. He has two children. His son had completed MBBS, while his daughter was studying MBBS. Dr Arivazhagan had written a letter to me saying, “Please pray that my son secures a seat for MD. I cannot pay two crores for an MD seat. Only God should pave the way for his admission. After I prayed, I sent him this reply, “Make a faith confession that God has granted the MD seat for your son. Similarly, the doctor and his son made the faith confessions.
Days passed and I received another letter from him. God had enabled his son to get a seat in CMC Vellore without any capitation fees. Hallelujah! It is very difficult to secure a seat at CMC Vellore for MD by merit. But when the doctor’s son wrote the entrance exam for the MD exam, God’s wisdom was revealed. When you believe the same miracle can take place in your family as well. Do not be worried!
Prayer: Loving Lord, we thank you for always helping us in our times of trouble. Increase our faith in you so that we can trust you at all times and receive miracles in our lives. Be with us and guide us.
