By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to Faith. Hebrews 11:7
I love Noah. He perfectly exemplifies what faith in God looks like because of his choices. He chooses to heed the words of God over what he sees with his eyes and what He knows with his mind. God says, "Make yourself an ark ....with three decks ....I Myself will bring the floodwaters on the earth to destroy all flesh .... But 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. And .......of 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..." Genesis 6:14-21 As God fills Noah in on His plan Noah makes the choice to heed all His words and act on them. They became the substance that motivated all his choices. His choice to heed God's divine warning became the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of the things not seen both literally and figuratively. Rain, floodwaters, Arks, destroying all flesh? All new concepts ...things not know, and not seen in the earth before, But because God spoke ... Noah believed and acted accordingly.
Because of Noah 's faith in God above all else he "saved his household and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith." And the thing is, you and I have the same choice to make as we walk out a life of faith and become heirs of that same righteousness. We too must choose to live according to the Almighty's words because we too have been divinely warned of things to come. We too have the same choice to make that Noah did. Will we make the words He speaks the substance of all our actions as we place all our hope in Him, the Maker of heaven and earth, and ... all that is to come.
Thus Noah did, according to all that God commander him, so he did. Genesis 6:22 Because of his faith in God, Noah got the job done! Faith in God makes the impossible happen! Even building arks and saving a lost and during world.
