Week 1 Day 6
Two things stand out as you begin this passage the utter depravity of humankind and the grief of God's heartThe extent of God's sorrow points to the magnitude of God's loveThe decision, or the remedy, which God chose was to end all life and send the world back to a watery chaos
Then in the midst of the darkness God saw one lightIt was Noah God clutched that one hope and devised a plan
Noah, of course, had to cooperate and he didThe faith of Noah is awesome before there was even a drop of rain he started building and stocking that ark
Thus the flood became a means not only of destruction but of salvation as well.
GOD'S GRIEF God used the floodwater to cleanse, save, and redeem the world. Genesis 6 & 7 5The Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was onlyevil continually. 6The Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7So the Lord said, "I will destroy man from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them."
8But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. 9This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. 10Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11The earth was corrupt before God, and 13God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence; behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14"Make yourself an ark of gopherwood; make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with pitch. 15This ishow you shall make it: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits [450 feet], its width fifty cubits [75 feet], and its height thirty cubits [45 feet]. 16Make a window for the ark, and finish it to a cubit [18 inches] from above; and set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third decks. 17"I am bringing floodwaters on the earth, to destroy all flesh; everything that is on the earth shall die. 18But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall go into the ark--you, your sons, your wife, and your sons' wives with you. 19Of every living thing of all flesh you shall bring two of every sort into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female. 20Of the birds and animals after their kind, and of every creeping thing after its kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive. 21You shall take for yourself of all food that is eaten, and gather it and it shall be food for you and for them." 22Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did. 17The flood was on the earth forty days. The waters increased and lifted the ark high above the earth. 18The waters prevailed and greatly increased on the earth andthe ark moved about on the surface of the waters.
