The Promise of God

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Genesis 8:22 “As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.”

O-bservation:

Sin had so overtaken the planet that God decided He would destroy all living things except for Noah’s Family and two each of all living creatures, one male and one female. Noah built an ark as God instructed and called two of every living species into the ark. He then brought his family into the ark and closed the door. As declared, the rains fell upon the earth and God destroyed everything. After a while, the waters receded. Upon exiting the ark, God made Noah, and the world to follow, a PROMISE. "As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease."

A-pplication:

"The Promise of God" made to Noah thousands of years ago still holds true today. First, God promised that He would destroy the earth because of the unbridled sin by earth’s inhabitants … AND … He did! Second, God promised that as long as the earth endured, He would keep it as it had been before the flood ... AND … He has! Both promises were kept. DESTRUCTION and PRESERVATION are in the hands of "Almighty God." The Word of God is filled with PROMISES from our Blessed Savior. Every "PROMISE" is for YOU today! So, whenever you're in a quandary as to what to do, go with … "The Promise of God."

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus, Thank You today and every day that I can operate safely in your PROMISES, which are spelled out for me in Your Word. I have, and will continue to trust in, the Promises of God. Amen

Live For Heaven’s Favor

S. O. A. P.

Here's your 90 second AM devotional!

S-cripture:

Genesis 6:8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.

O-bservation:

There came a time, early on in human history, where man's state of sin and degradation was so rampant on the earth that God's heart was broken. The Scripture says that God was sorry that he had ever made man. However there was one man, named Noah, who found favor with God for his righteous lifestyle. He and his family were the only ones saved from the flood that destroyed the rest of humanity.

A-pplication:

Noah lived for God's favor. In order to do that, he lived against the tide of human approval. He was not concerned with what people thought of him. He did not roll with the wave of existentialism that was the order of that day. I can only say in response to Noah's life that God will take care of His own when they ... "Live For Heaven's Favor." As in the case of Sodom and Gomorrah, God would have spared those cities if Abram could have found 10 righteous people. He could not. And here God spared Noah and his family. They found favor with God. Let's agree on this directive ... "Live For Heaven’s Favor."

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus, You know even better than I do, that all "Followers of Jesus" live under intense peer pressure. Today I'm living for Your favor. Amen
