God will sustain you
When God commissioned Noah to build an Ark, Noah must have been greatly challenged, facing the unknown. Noah and His wife and his three sons and their wives literally took on a specialised task that no one had ever done before.
Can you imagine building a ginormous wooden tar-pitched vessel that had three different levels to house animals and other living creatures as well as yourselves; when you had never seen such a vessel before?
Once built, Noah and his family and all the creatures commissioned by God were inside the Ark, the rain began to fall. This was the first time that this family had ever seen rain. This rain continued to fall, and eventually flooded the entire earth.
It literally rained on the earth for forty days and forty nights, until every living thing that was not in the ark, was wiped out. Eventually the waters rose so high that even the mountains were covered. The entire earth was covered in water for one hundred and fifty days.
Even though they had never experienced anything like this before, God was faithful; He kept His promises, and brought Noah and his family His relief. Noah and his family and all the animals eventually disembarked the Ark which rested on dry land again.
God went to great effort to preserve the lives of His righteous children; so He will go to great effort to care for you as His child.
God is calling you to trust Him when you are facing the unknown. You may not know what your future holds, but He surely does.
He is a faithful Father, true to His Word, and does what He says.
Verse: “Then God said to Noah, ’Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives. Bring out every kind of living creature that is with you—the birds, the animals, and all the creatures that move along the ground—so they can multiply on the earth and be fruitful and increase in number on it.’” Genesis 15:16-17 (New International Version)
Practical action step:
- Take a moment to write down the uncertainties you are currently facing
- Then as a prophetic act (a special act of faith), take a thicker pen, and write over these uncertainties the words “God is Faithful!”
