Re: Verse reading–Genesis 6 (day five) 

Are you like me? When things get out of control I struggle with impatience. I want to hurry. I want to “get on with it” or “get it over with”. It really is a coping mechanism clearly indicating that I am not in control. Good news… God is in control. I believe it. I feel it. I know it. One of the many reasons, He is patient and faithful to His promises and character- even when things seem to be out of control. The way He deals with Noah and the “wicked generation” is more evidence of this patient and just judgement. There was time and opportunity for them to repent and turn to God. They did not. There was judgement and justice.  IN God’s perfect timing, He prepared Noah and acted.

God continues to be patient and in control. 2 Peter 3:9– “The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.” His patience is His kindness and an indication He is in control. That is really GOOD NEWS!!
