Reset Button

Re:Verse passage – Genesis 6:5-22 (day seven) 

Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  vs 5

How wicked must the world have been at this time for God to have to hit a reset button? I look at the world today and begin to ask myself, how much more wicked can it get? I find myself in moments of despair saying, “Lord Jesus come quickly!” However, if this was as wicked as things could get and there was no turning back, God would intervene. That means that God can redeem this world.  He is not ready to hit the reset button yet.

His answer to me when I say, “Lord Jesus come quickly!” is always, “If I came today, your neighbor would go to hell. What will you do to fix that?”

Even if this world may seem lost as it has ever been, our job is not to dwell on when Jesus will fix it, but to get out there and fix it ourselves with His power within us. We can hit the reset button!
