I am the Queen of doing things Right. Somewhere along the way early in life I adopted the belief that if I did things right, life would turn out all right. A race to that goal ensued; an exhausting race I have been running ever since.
Old Testament Noah was Mr. Right. We are told in Genesis 6:9 that Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God. Imagine Noah’s dismay when, after a lifetime of doing things right and walking closely with God, the world started falling apart?
- Noah did not complain.
- Noah was silent and listened very carefully.
- Noah did everything just as God commanded him. (Genesis 6:22)
- Noah waited with faith and belief on the Lord’s salvation.
- Noah gave thanks.
- Noah received God’s promised blessing.
