Noah did everything just as God commanded him.
In this story I was fascinated by how much God hated man so much that He was willing to kill off everyone. However, what is more crazy there was one person on the entire earth that God found righteous. But what does it mean to be righteous. The definition for a righteous person is that some one who is morally upright; without guilt or sin. In also this case it is someone who is obedient. Who follows God and trust him whole heartedly. It is something to have that kind of obedience, to do everything God has commanded. It’s not easy. But it is the necessary ingredient for in order for not only righteousness but also to find favor with God. God provided the right path for all of us. However, it is up to us to walk in obedience to Him.
This verse shows that what God desires from us the most is for us to be obedient to Him. He desires that we follow Him with our whole heart, mind and soul. This is what I know I need to do, but there are many things that get in my way that hinder me from striving towards obedience to Him. I truly desire to be obedient to him. I want to walk in His light and have the favor that Noah did. In order for that to happen, I must firmly anchor my love, life, and heart to Him. I must trust in Him and walk when He says to walk, and stop when He says to stop. But I know that isn’t easy.
Lord I desire to do what you command. Help me find that obedience for you.
