God Remembered Noah…We sometimes think that God has forgotten us. In the midst of our trials and tribulations, we think there is no one left that cares or remembers us. Imagine Noah, on the Ark with the animals and his family knowing that everyone and everything else was destroyed. What a heartbreak. But, in the midst of a world underwater, God remembered Noah. He began the process of liberation and restoration. It did not happen immediately, it was not full of fanfare and adulation; no, it was a simple wind, the natural processes God put in place.
Often, our lives are the same. We call out to the Lord and ask for relief and restoration. Then, God remembers us. He begins the process of reducing the calamity and restoring his own. It does not happen overnight. It is often a process of years. But through the natural processes of the journey, God recedes the flood waters and restores our lives. It is never the same—It is often much better. But no matter what the outcome is—we know God is in charge and in love with us. We have to be patient, we have to trust. Mostly, we have to wait. Help me, Lord to wait on you to make the waters of trials recede and provide new and fertile ground for me to continue the journey.
God Bless You
