Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
The scriptures are full of stories of men and women submitting to the call of God. These treasures are designed to motivate and inspire you as you walk through this life with tremendous purpose.
Imagine God asking you to do something that seems impossible! In Genesis 6 the Bible says, “Noah found favor in the eyes of God.” So God gave him the dimensions of a huge boat (ark) that would fit his family and two kinds of every creature on the earth. Suddenly, greeting at church on Sundays doesn’t seem so daunting does it? This ship would take 120 years to build, and it was being prepared for the earth to be flooded. A little footnote, it had not ever rained before! Noah’s neighbors had to think he was crazy, but following the leadership of God may not always make sense.
Far too often, people set out to accomplish specific tasks where the power of God isn’t really needed. They stay in their comfort zone and miss the opportunity to see the majesty of God. I challenge you to seek that which can only be done through the miraculous touch of God. You will not be disappointed.
Noah was faithful in the calling God gave him, and gave him a sign of his willingness to fulfill the purpose the Lord promised.
Genesis 9:12,13 “And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.”
Q4U: God is calling. Will you listen and be obedient to His instructions just like Noah?
