STANDING ALONE FOR GOD in a godless world: A tough but achievable assignment.
Noah, like you, lived in a wicked society.
And so can you!
God's assessment of Noah's life?
"You alone I have seen to be righteous before Me in this generation." (Genesis
The Lord was painfully aware of societies' blatant sins as SEX and VIOLENCE dotted the landscape+...as it does ours.
"Then the Lord saw that the WICKEDNESS OF MAN WAS GREAT ON THE EARTH, AND THAT EVERY INTENT OF THE THOUGHTS OF HIS HEART WAS ONLY EVIL ...CONTINUALLY...[God] was grieved in his heart...that He had made man..." (Genesis 6:5,6)
Living amidst this decadence, Noah stood up and was counted:
"Noah found favor in the eyes of God" - That is, he was PLEASING to God! (Genesis 6:8)
"Noah was a righteous man" - That is, he was LAWFUL AND JUST before God! (Genesis 6:9)
"Noah was blameless in his time" - That is, he lived a LIFE OF INTEGRITY before his fellow man. (Genesis 6:9)
"Noah walked with God" - That is, he and God were CONVERSANT. They had a relationship. (Genesis 6:9)
STANDING ALONE FOR GOD is a tough but achievable assignment which God expects us to accomplish!
My prayer is that you are having a great week!
+Genesis 6:2; 7:13; 4:8,22
