Genesis 6:17: “I am going to bring floodwaters on earth to destroy all life.”
God saw how great wickedness had become and decided to wipe humankind off the face of the earth. Noah was found righteous in that generation, so God saved him and his family. God instructed Noah to bring into the ark two of every animal, male and female. Noah obeyed everything that God commanded him to do.
You are always with me, no matter where I am or what I am doing. At this moment I stop to adore you, to praise you, and to thank you for my life. Even before I knew you, you loved me, you pursued me. You never gave up on me. I know you are aware of everything that happens to me, I call to you and you hear me.
When I believed and received by your grace my salvation, that was the beginning of my spiritual
journey. My soul awoke as from a deep slumber. I felt your love and I loved you in return. Now I cannot live without it.
Father, you sent your son Jesus to be a sacrifice for my sins. That was the only way that I could receive the Holy Spirit that abides in me today. That was the only way you could rescue me and allow me to spend eternity with you. You knew he would be tortured, crucified. Jesus could have said “enough” and stopped it, legions of angels would have come to his rescue. But then the devil would have won. I will never understand so great a love. You did this for me, a sinner. How can I not spend my life praising you, loving you, obeying you.
Lord, give me a vision of life that transcends the world as I know it. Help me with the situations I find myself in that calls for more sacrifice than I think I can give. I know if I obey you I can find my deepest purpose in life, the reason you created me.
Jesus, you are my mediator to God, you are my hope, you are the way to my Father.
