God regretted his choice–Genesis 6 part 1

How does an all seeing, All knowing and All powerful God, have regrets?  It is a theological conundrum I have battled for years.  It is clear that God’s image without God’s holiness often turns horrific and destructive. God, longed for men to escape the devastating nature of sin. He had a plan. I am so grateful for Methusela, Lamech and Noah.  In a World that turned evil into an art and wickedness into a national pastime, God still treated Noah and his family singularly.  God has been God the entire time.  He really has not changed Character. 

God has always looked at a man’s heart.  He has always desired to have fellowship with us.  He has always used restraint—BUT, he has always remained in charge, in control, and committed to executing his plan.  We all come from Noah, everyone else was destroyed.  They, as we will see, chose their fate.  But God accepted all that believed.  He is still the same today.  He asks that we humble ourselves and surrender to his plan, if we do we experience freedom like none other.  He will spare us and be with us as we walk the amazing journey set forth for us.

Help me, Lord to surrender today and walk humbly in your Love.

God Bless You

6 When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, 2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. 3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.”

4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.

5 The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. 6 The Lord regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled. 7 So the Lord said, “I will wipe from the face of the earth the human race I have created—and with them the animals, the birds and the creatures that move along the ground—for I regret that I have made them. ” 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.
