Noah did what God said to do. He did everything exactly as he was told to do it. (Genesis 6:22)
Think of the great stories of the Bible. You may recall Noah’s story, or Moses and the Exodus. These, and other epics that tell of how God has worked in human history to change peoples’ lives, all share a common trait. Each story includes a man or a woman who had enough faith and courage to choose to trust the Lord and do what He told them to do.
Can you imagine the people mocking and laughing at Noah each day as he worked on a ship that was longer than a football field, while he was explaining that a flood would come? Think of the conversations he must have had with his wife and sons as they questioned him. But, Noah continued – because he trusted God. God’s instruction very often does not make sense to the people who receive it. It almost never makes sense to the world around them. However, doing what the Lord says to do is how a follower must respond when God speaks. Obedience is the action of one who really trusts God.
Chose to be obedient today. When God’s Holy Spirit speaks to you, do what He says to do. Let Him write a new story with your life.
