Faith Does What God Commands, Even When It Sounds Impossible
“Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation. Noah walked with God.” (Genesis 6:9, ESV)
“And God said to Noah, “I have determined to make an end of all flesh, for the earth is filled with violence through them. Behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make yourself an ark of gopher wood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and out with pitch. This is how you are to make it: the length of the ark 300 cubits, its breadth 50 cubits, and its height 30 cubits.” (Genesis 6:13–15, ESV)
“And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every sort into the ark to keep them alive with you. They shall be male and female.” (Genesis 6:19, ESV)
“Noah did this; he did all that God commanded him.” (Genesis 6:22, ESV)
You’re going to do what? Build a what? How big? Where’s my work crew coming from? How do I chase down all those animals? These are all questions Noah did not ask!
When it comes to faith, faith acts. If God commands, faith understands it is possible. If God directs, God will be with us. If God leads, He will be there to provide.
Today, I’m asking myself three questions by faith …
- What is the BIG thing God want me to do?
- Am I complaining about THAT thing right now?
- Have I forgotten that God is WITH me and will provide everything I need to accomplish His will?
What about you? How do you respond to God’s BIG “asks” in your life? I look forward to hearing from you!
