Topic: Pattern Of God’s Work (2)
Date: Wednesday, January 12, 2022
Read: Genesis. 6:13-22.
MEMORISE: This Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did (Genesis 6:22).
There is no child that regularly acts contrary to the parent’s laydown rules who would enjoy the good side of such parents. No right- thinking, disciplined parent can be happy with disobedience, most especially, at the level of recalcitrance. No wonder many children find it difficult to make headway in life and their choose careers. It is imperative for children to be godly and have good relationship with their parents through willing obedience, so that they can receive parental approval and blessings.
Among the people of the then world who saw the flood, only Noah and his family found God’s favour, because they imbibed God’s righteousness and were saved. Isn’t that too pathetic that from the most likely thousands on earth, then? It would have been worse, if God didn’t get anyone, though that couldn’t have negatively affected God, either. Receive the grace to be a true representative of God, here, in Jesus’name.
We can see the Hallmark of Noah’s compliance and conformity to God’s holy standard when God eventually asked him to make an Ark. Noah was so meticulous to the extent that he carried out the task to detail without leaving out a single instruction. He used the specified wood, the measurement, and he followed the boarding order. And the Bible confirms his compliance to the pattern or description God gave him (v.22).
Deviation (do it as you wish or as it appeals to you) characterises the work of God in many people’s hands today. They no longer find it convenient to go by what God shows. People want to do it their own way, or mellow down God’s standard. Don’t we inject our own interpretations into God’s Word, and still make it look like it is God speaking? If God will not use Noah to judge us on the last day, there is that urgency to consider how we are doing His work, and make necessary amends.
1. Give me Your Spirit, O Lord, to always go by the picture You are showing to me in relation to Your work in my hands.
2. Deliver Your ministers from the temptation to do it as the world is doing, or showing it, O Lord.
3. Pray for CAC Odusona Region, our father in the Lord, the Superintendent, and its officers at the various levels, as led by the Spirit of God.
