S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
The Lord then said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation.”
Here, at the outset of the greatest flood in history, God said to Noah, “I’m going to bring you and your whole family into the ark of safety because you have followed My ways. You will not be destroyed, you will be SAFE.”
Throughout history, you could never be sure of what God would do. I mean 10 of His original 12 disciples died a martyr’s death! But for the most part, God has always provided a “SAFE” place for those who walk uprightly. Men like Abraham and Moses and David are prime examples of people who walked with God, and they were promoted for their steadfastness. Women like Deborah, Bathsheba, and of course Mary the mother of Jesus all found a “SAFE” place in God’s service. Noah could not possibly have understood the carnage that was about to happen on planet earth, all at the hand of God. But he obeyed when the Lord said bring your family inside the ark, just like he had years before when the Lord told him to build it. The one component that God requires in order to be “SAFE” on this side of heaven is obedience. Each of the aforementioned folks in this post was a person of obedience. That’s why they each lived in a “SAFE” place with the Lord until they went to heaven.
I want to obey! I need the feeling that I’m “SAFE” 24 hours a day. Help me be an obedient follower in Your service. Amen
