The Great Flood

 And it repented the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His Heart. Genesis 6:6

Noah talked and walked with God,

Day in and day out, through out the year.

He and his family, the only ones around,

Amongst so many sinners and idolaters.

Moral depravity and growing sin,

Made man, the most despicable animal,

That God repented, about His creation,

Sadly deciding, to destroy mankind totally.

But Noah and his family, the only ones around,

Who found grace with God the Almighty,

Was saved from the inevitable judgment,

Along with the birds, animals, in two’s and seven’s.

Build an Ark, commanded God,

Of gopher wood, four decks high, rooms aplenty,

Noah started immediately and obediently,

Without a thought, of where to sail.

Up went the Ark, divine plan in action,

Inspired by God, strengthened by faith,

Prayer and song, drowning the wicked laughter,

Ridiculing Noah, his Ark, and his God.

Noah did not worry about how to go about,

From foundation to finish, God enlightened him,

The wood, the plan, measurement to the purpose,

God planed the little details for the great task ahead.

Animals and birds, God collected to the last,

Leaving nothing for Noah to get worried about.

Filling four decks high with forty five thousand animals,

A great and an impossible task, a lone man cannot do.

Often we do just the opposite of Noah,

Worry in details over things which we have no control,

Neglecting specific areas, like responsibilities and relationships,

That is under over control and loosing sight of the goal.

    Noah trusted God knowing the great flood was no problem for him and his family as long as he served a greater God!
