God’s restoration, while often different than we expect, is amazing in so many ways. As many times as I have read this passage, the last phrase really struck me. By the language it seems that Seth’s family seemed to actually seek God. Whether that means that they had a renewed desire to serve, or a real absence of his presence. Either way, Seth’s family sought the Lord.
That is all God has ever desired. He created us to be in relationship. When we walk in that, we have his protection, his leadership and his freedom. The book of genesis also shows how we differ when we abandon him. Throughout the Bible, the difference is stark and consistent.
Follow him, seek him and enjoy his peace and his protection. Abandon him, and feel his absence. Joshua 24 sums it up…”Choose this day whom you will serve…As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!”
God Bless You
25 Adam made love to his wife again, and she gave birth to a son and named him Seth, saying, “God has granted me another child in place of Abel, since Cain killed him.” 26 Seth also had a son, and he named him Enosh. At that time people began to call on the name of the Lord.
