Good Morning!

Noah, like you, lived in a wicked society.


And so can you!

God’s assessment of Noah’s life?

You alone I have seen to be righteous before Me in this generation.” (Gen. 7:1)

 The Lord was painfully aware of societies’ blatant sins as SEX and VIOLENCE dotted the landscape+…as it does ours.

 “Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually[God] was grieved in his heart…that He had made man…”  (Gen. 6:5,6)

 Living amidst this decadence, Noah stood up and was counted:

  • Noah found favor in the eyes of God”  – That is, he was pleasing to God! (Gen. 6:8)
  • Noah was a righteous man – That is, he was lawful and just before God! (Gen. 6:9)
  • Noah was blameless in his time – That is, he lived a life of integrity before his fellow man.  (Gen. 6:9)
  • Noah walked with God – That is, he and God were conversantThey had a relationship. (Gen. 6:9)

STANDING ALONE FOR GOD is a tough  but achievable assignment which God expects us to accomplish!



 My prayer is that you are having a great week!
