Most people know the Bible story about Noah building a big boat. God told Noah, “So I will destroy all living things. I will remove them from the earth. Use cypress wood and build a boat for yourself” (verse 13b).
Maybe Noah did not understand why he should build a boat and gather animals to come on the boat. But verse 22 tells us that “Noah did everything God commanded him.” Noah obeyed God. Maybe there are things about the Bible that you don’t understand. Or maybe you don’t understand why God wants you to do certain things. We don’t need to understand. We just need to be like Noah and obey!
Chapters 8 and 9 of Genesis tell us that God kept Noah and his family safe in the boat. When the flood waters went down, Noah and his family left the boat and started a new life. God blessed Noah for his obedience.
God will bless you for your obedience. Read God’s Word and obey it!
