Do you feel forgotten?
The trials of life often feel as a drudging journey through desert land.
I shared the story of Noah’s Ark with my Sunday school class recently. Since reading this verse aloud, I have not been able to shake it:
“And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the Ark; and God made a wind to pass over the Earth, and all the waters assuaged.” Genesis 8:1
God REMEMBERED. He called Noah to this unique task, and He did not just forget him in the middle of it. He never forgot him. He could not. He did not abandon him in this strangely massive, wooden boat with all of these pairs of creatures and water higher than mountain tops. It is not His nature to forsake. The Word of God declares, He’ll never leave!
Instead, He ordered Noah’s steps from beginning to end.
“Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.” Genesis 6:22
God honored Noah’s obedience. Eventually the waters would recede, and they would go forth from the Ark and replenish the Earth.
At the end of it all, we are left with a promise of faithfulness that still remains.
“Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:16
Have you found yourself in the midst of a uniquely difficult season? Maybe one thing after the other is just going wrong.
God REMEMBERS you. He sees the struggle. He knows the pain. Grasp a hold of Him in faith that He will deliver you. The bow is in the cloud, Child of God! HE REMEMBERS YOU.
