The Bible in 365 Days: Day 7 {In the Church}

The Bible in 365 Days: A Year with God {Living Outside the Stacks}

Scripture

Genesis 7:4

For in seven days I will send rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and every living thing that I have made will blot out from the face of the ground.

Observation

God gave man an additional week to repent of his sins and be reconciled with Him.

Application

Mercy. There’s that word again. I believe that the whole time Noah was building the ark, he was telling the people around him why he was building it. I believe that he was letting them know that judgement was about to fall on them because of their evil ways.

And God, even at the very last minute, provided a way of escape from destruction but the people’s hearts were so hard that they couldn’t hear Him.

Like any good parent, God always warns His children before they’re about to be punished, it’s up to the kids to mend their ways.

Prayer

Dear Lord, thank you for my health, life, and strength. Thank you for giving me today and allowing me to see my baby girl turn 17. I know there have been so many times when I’ve disappointed you, when I haven’t heeded your warnings, yet you gave me a second and third {and sometimes more} chance to get it right. I love you and I praise you, in your name, Amen.
