NOAH KNOWS

"By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household..." (Hebrews 11:7)

 

Hey Noah, could you impart a little age-old wisdom? Well, if he could talk I think he would tell us at least ten things.

1. We're all in the same boat. Some came over on the Santa Maria, others came on slave boats, but we are all in the same boat now.

2. Plan ahead; it wasn't raining when he built the ark.

3. Stay fit. When you are 600, you may be asked to do something really big. If a guy that old could do it, we have no business pouting about crossing the fifty hump.

4. Don't listen to critics. Everyone in town thought the boat idea was a big joke, certainly a poor idea.

5. For safety sake, travel in pairs. Jesus sent His disciples out in pairs. Noah brought in the animals in pairs. We is stronger than me.

6. Snails got on board with the cheetahs. Speed isn't the issue, faithfulness is. Inch by inch even the inchworm made it in time.

7. When stressed, float awhile. Noah couldn't change the ferocity of the storm outside but he could trust God, pull in the oars and control the environment inside.

8. The ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals. Christ's salvation is simple; not elaborate. Sometimes a raft serves a better purpose than a Trident submarine. Simplify.

9. Woodpeckers inside are a greater threat than the storm outside. Be careful who you invite on board because you'll have to put up with them the whole trip.

10. There is a rainbow coming after the rain. No matter how severe the storm God comes through with signs to steady and assure the heart. Tomorrow is bright.

 

Noah knows. His story is one of great faith. After he had done all he was commanded to do then God took over and did what he could not do. As soon as the last set of hooves trekked across the threshold of the Ark, "the Lord shut him in" (Genesis 7:16). Noah didn't draw the door shut, God did. He is able to keep in those that are in and shut out those that are on the outs. Make sure friend that you are "in Christ" because the only security we have is found in Jesus. Pharaoh sunk like led to the bottom of the sea but Noah's faith, like a bulging inner tube, lifted him and his family up above the cresting waves. The cream always raises to the top and so do people of faith. The only question however that I want to ask Noah when I finally do get to see him is, why did he not squash those two mosquitoes? Maybe the insects survived on their own. At least he needs to explain why he let that pair of ground squirrels on board. Oh I know, he had to obey everything he was commanded and that included saving the gophers. In that he is the master environmentalist and a perfect model for faith. In this hour when another catastrophic storm seems inevitable we could sure use a few more men like him.
