Genesis 8

Good morning y’all.  Happy sunday!!!

Today we continue our study of Genesis. We in chapter 8. Noah and all in the boat were kept safe during the flood. Flood ended and God instructed them to leave the boat so they can start afresh. God made a promise to not destroy the earth again.

Be blessed 🙂

God turned his attention to Noah! Wow that’s pretty awesome! Just to know that the creator of the universe, the one who holds it all in his hands will actually turn his attention to us. That He will remember us. That he will make time for us, to listen and communicate with us. For me it’s just amazing. The psalmist says what is man that you are mindful of him…

Psalm 8:4-5 AMP:
“What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of [earthborn] man that You care for him? Yet You have made him but a little lower than God [or heavenly beings], and You have crowned him with glory and honor.”

If God turned his attention to Noah and all on the boat,  He can and will do the same for us too. Be encouraged 🙂

Not only did he turn his attention to them, He made the elements to work in their favour.V 2 and 3 tells of how God caused the wind to blow and the flood waters began to go down…..I pray God will cause everything around us to begin to work in our favour.

Noah didn’t leave the boat until he was instructed by God to do so even though he knew the earth was dry seeing as the dove didn’t come back when he sent it out the 3rd time. Don’t run ahead of God. Let’s wait for his guidance and direction. Prov 3: 5-6 tells us to not lean on our own understanding but in all our ways to acknowledge God and he will direct our path.

Proverbs 3:5-6 CEVUS06:

“With all your heart you must trust the Lord and not your own judgment.  Always let him lead you, and he will clear the road for you to follow.”

After Noah and all left the boat, he offered burnt offering to God. This I believed he did to thank God for safety during the flood and for a fresh beginning.  God was delighted in  the offering and vowed never to destroy all living things again. Are we grateful and thankful for all that God does for us or do we thank it for granted. Let’s offer thanks to God. Scripture says we should give thanks to God for this is his will.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 NLT : “Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.

Prayer
Dear Lord we thank you for today. We thank you for your breath in us. Thank you for the many wonderful things you have blessed us with. Today we pray that you will turn your attention towards us, that you would cause everything around us to work in our favour. Pls give us a grateful and thankful heart. We love you Lord. In Jesus Name. Amen

Thank you for joining.

Have a blessed Sunday and remember to be thankful and grateful today.

***With God all things are possible***
