But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded.
When God told Noah there was going to be a great flood and he was to build a huge boat and take two of every kind of animal on it, it had never rained. The dew came up from the ground and watered the earth. You can imagine how odd that seemed. But the Scripture says, “Noah did exactly what God asked him to do.” He was obedient. Then rain came for forty days, the whole earth was flooded, and month after month went by. Noah didn’t know if it was going to be like that the rest of his life. But God remembered Noah, sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded.
God remembers your obedience. He remembers when you did the right thing when it was hard. You kept giving, serving, being good to people even though you didn’t see anything changing or improving. Don’t worry. Your time is coming. God is about to breathe on your life as He did for Noah and problems that look permanent are going to disappear.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You are the God who remembers my giving and serving others. Thank You that when I can’t see anything changing or improving that I can know that my time is coming. I believe that You are breathing on my life and that the problems are receding. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
