God’s Ark for You

7 Apr

God’s Word: Genesis 8

God’s message to me:

You may think you are about to drown in a sea of despair but hold on—I will never leave you nor forsake you.  Perhaps you have failed to recognize my protection, or perhaps you were not happy with my provision.  Look around you!  You are now in my ark of protection.  I am preparing a place for you to “land” and multiply disciples for my kingdom.  Is that what you are looking for?

Try and see your life from my frame of reference—the big picture that encompasses all of humanity.  Don’t merely seek comfort for yourself, but seek to be comforters of others.  Noah was not seeking a boat to save himself or his family, but to save life on the whole earth.  You could even say that Noah built that boat for YOU.

You live today because of the choices Noah made yesterday.  As I called Noah into my service I am calling you.  The whole world was changed because of Noah’s obedience to my call.  Your choices can make a huge difference in the lives of others—both on this earth and eternally.  Simply obey my call on your life and seek to serve others on my behalf.

God’s Question for me:

Who will live eternally because of the choices you made to share Christ with them today?

My prayer to God: (ACTS Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, Supplication)

I praise you for using Noah to save me and for using me in the salvation process of others.

I am sorry that I have lived my life so selfishly instead of focusing on others.

Thank you for giving us many chances to turn back to you in obedience.

Help us to see our lives from your perspective and obediently live for you.

God’s Promise to me:

I’ll never again curse the ground because of people.  I know they have this bent toward evil from an early age, but I’ll never again kill off everything as I’ve just done.  (Genesis 8:27)

My Song to God: God Will Take Care of You

  1. Be not dismayed whate’er betide,
    God will take care of you;
    Beneath His wings of love abide,
    God will take care of you.

    • Refrain:
      God will take care of you,
      Through every day, o’er all the way;
      He will take care of you,
      God will take care of you.
  2. Through days of toil when heart doth fail,
    God will take care of you;
    When dangers fierce your path assail,
    God will take care of you.
  3. All you may need He will provide,
    God will take care of you;
    Nothing you ask will be denied,
    God will take care of you.
  4. No matter what may be the test,
    God will take care of you;
    Lean, weary one, upon His breast,
    God will take care of you.
