Upside Down

Re:Verse reading–Genesis 9:1-17 (day four)

It was a new day!  The earth had been cleansed by the flood.  Only Noah and his family remained…but some things were changed.  Before the flood, God had given man the green plants for food.  Now, He gave all the beasts of the field and the birds of the sky to man for food.  The animals had always walked in harmony with man, but God placed a fear of man in their hearts.  The results of sin had shaken the whole earth.

Forgiveness can turn our world upside down.  When we enter a covenant relationship with God and receive His forgiveness of our sin…it is a new day for us.  We are cleansed of sin and walk in newness of life!  Our relationship with God through the Holy Spirit has all new rules.  Reasoning by the world’s principles does not take into account the intervention of the Spirit.  Live in obedience and follow the Holy Spirit…btw, you’ll find a lot of what He has to say in Scripture!
