When God told Noah to build an ark because there was going to be a flood to destroy the earth, Noah must have been puzzled. It had never rained before! What a fool Noah would look like building this huge boat and filling it with animals. It took a long period of time to build the ark. Can you imagine the jokes people must have made about Noah? I’m sure he must have been ridiculed by unbelievers. But Noah never wavered in his faith to complete the mission God had given him. I hope that I can always feel so confident about my faith in God. And that I listen well enough to hear the task he gives to me.
“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” Hebrews 11:6
You see, even though we don’t see God, He is still here with us. The only way we can get to heaven is by having this faith in him. That is why it’s important for us to pray and read his word. Through these things we can come to understand what he expects of us and we strengthen our personal relationship with him.
