Are You Ready for a Flood?
In anticipation of the movie coming out next week, I’ve been reading about Noah. We aren’t told how long it took Noah and his family to build the ark and I doubt that God gave him a construction schedule.
God told Noah to start building the ark and the only timeline that Noah received was when he & his family got their boarding passes a week before the rain began to fall. I wonder, what if Noah had not been ready? What if he’d procrastinated? What if he’d failed to follow God’s construction plan’s? What if he’d not believed or obeyed God? What if Noah had not been ready when God acted?
In everyday life, readiness is vital. A lighthouse must be ready for the ship when it passes; the fire department must be ready for the fire when it starts; EMS must be ready for the accident when it happens.
The Christian also must be ready to respond when God acts if we want to experience His powerful presence in our lives. There’s a lot of preparation of the heart in order to be ready to respond to God’s word and join Him in what He’s doing. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to miss out on what God is calling me to because I’m not spiritually prepared? That preparation is made through everyday faith and obedience, just like Noah displayed.
Are you ready for a flood or whatever else God might do?
“And Noah did all that the LORD had commanded him. Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters came upon the earth.” (Genesis 7:5-6)
