Jesus tells us that he prays for us to the Father even though he is part of the trinity. I think it means that was happening.
2/17 started, lasted 150 days, 10/1 mountains visible, 40 days later raven, 1/1 saw dry earth, 1/27 complete dry – They were in the ark until God said to come out, not a day more or less.
God said to Noah “Come out of the ark, you and your wife and your sons and their wives.”
I have prayed and God has intervened. I had prayed that a new employee at our company starting this week would have a great first day on the job. When he didn’t show up for work on his first day and then called to say he had accepted a different offer the day before and had started with that company instead, I knew God was in control. I assume he had a good day at his job, but he wasn’t not supposed to be part of our team. It isn’t easy to rely on God in the short run, but I have to remember that God knows far more and better than I.
My meditation for today was on stepping in puddles. Our verses today made me think about how many times I get my feet all wet and how muddy my walk is because I rely on my own judgment to step out rather than wait on God. Noah sought discernment with the raven and the dove. I seek discernment with bible study and prayer. Noah waited patiently for God’s word. I knock down doors when I think the timing is right. Noah found favor with God. God’s grace shines favor on me, but I’m sure the muddy tracks I leave in His house must be very frustrating to Him.
