For The inhabitants of the Ark, there must have been a great sense of fear and concern. All outside the Ark was destroyed and they alone remained to start again. Noah was probably relieved he listened and trusted God. He was grateful to have his family at his side. But, the weight of starting again had to be incredible. Noah and his family sat for months in the Ark simply waiting for what God had next. Fear and lonlines a constant issue.
In our walks, through trials and circumstance, we remain grateful for what he has provided for us, but we also battle the fears and loneliness of our unique journey. In the midst of the journey, we have to cling to the fact that he has brought us this far and that he loves us completely. We accept what we are handed and pray for his wisdom and direction while we wait. His timing is always different, but his plan is always perfect. Help me Lord to wait on you with a grateful heart and your peace.
God Bless you
17 For forty days the flood kept coming on the earth, and as the waters increased they lifted the ark high above the earth. 18 The waters rose and increased greatly on the earth, and the ark floated on the surface of the water. 19 They rose greatly on the earth, and all the high mountains under the entire heavens were covered. 20 The waters rose and covered the mountains to a depth of more than fifteen cubits. 21 Every living thing that moved on land perished—birds, livestock, wild animals, all the creatures that swarm over the earth, and all mankind. 22 Everything on dry land that had the breath of life in its nostrils died. 23 Every living thing on the face of the earth was wiped out; people and animals and the creatures that move along the ground and the birds were wiped from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those with him in the ark. 24 The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.
