Hebrews 11:7 “By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes from faith.”

Noah’s life can be summed up as one of obedience, faith, and waiting on the Lord. God told Noah to, “Make yourself an ark”, and Noah did everything just as God commanded him. Then God told him to “Go into the ark”, and “Noah did all that the Lord commanded him”. Finally, God said to Noah, “Come out of the ark.” and “Noah came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives.” With each command from God, Noah had the opportunity to trust God more and more…even when he couldn’t even begin to fully understand the magnitude of what was happening. Faith building in our life is kind of like Noah building that ark…one board at a time, one chance to trust God at a time…until it and our life is complete.
