Re:Verse reading–Genesis 9:1-17 (day two)
And God blessed Noah and his sons and said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.” vs. 1
120 years, can you imagine? Some 120 years after the original instructions were given, Noah steps off the arc and begins to walk in the dawn of the covenant promise of God. Noah remembers God by sacrificing the clean animals, and then God blesses him and his his family. Noah got ‘job well done’ pat on the back from God for seeing this work through. God does not forget us. He wants to show us his favor and shower his blessings upon us, but have we been faithful with what he has given us to merit a blessing? Our families, our jobs, our lives, do they speak of the sovereign grace of our Lord? He will not forget us, we should not forget him.
