Today as we take a break from our normal posts, I encourage you to be still for just a few minutes and take some time to meet with God. God is all around us; we just have to take the time to experience Him. Psalm 46:10 encourages us to, “Be still and know that I am God.”
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. – Genesis 8:1
Can you imagine being on a boat with a bunch of smelly animals for 150 days? Well…Noah and his family did just that. Some people think they only had to survive on that boat for 40 days and 40 nights, but the Bible says it rained for 40 days and 40 nights, but it took 150 days for the water to go down enough for Noah and the gang to exit the boat.
I’m sure there were days when Noah and his family wished they hadn’t been chosen for the ark assignment. But Noah knew God, and he believed that God would deliver them – no matter how many days he looked outside and saw nothing but water. For almost seven months, the Lord caused the wind to blow and push back the flood waters. God was working behind the scenes the whole time.
Maybe you feel like you’re on a big boat, floating on a sea of insecurities right now. You may not be able to see a change today, but just trust Him. God hasn’t forgotten you. In fact, your miracle may blow in on the very next breeze.
