But Noah found favor(Grace) in the eyes of the Lord. Gen 6:8
Story of the first flood – The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, ..The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created …. Gen 6:5-7 In such a hopeless situation Noah found favor – How did Noah find favor?
Different: Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God Gen 6:9 Unfavorable situations everyone evil, but Noah was righteous, people walked in lust of flesh but Noah walked with God, corrupt generation but Noah was blameless.
Obedient: Noah did everything just as God commanded him. Gen 6:22 Noah heard things beyond logic , water to destroy everything that has breadth, still He believed and he trusted God that he went ahead and build Ark, some theologians believe it took 120 years to complete the building of Ark. It was consistent obedience.
Prayer: Lord; let me not give excuse, but let me be different from the pattern of the world and live a life as per the word of God. Amen
