God never forgets us. Never. Sometimes it may feel like He is distant, or even absent, but He never leaves us. When God flooded the earth, Noah and his family spent one year on the ark. This wasn’t a cruise ship where they could walk around, enjoy the ocean, and have a cocktail as they watched the sunset. That’s a whole year shoulder-to-shoulder with family and two of every kind of animal on earth (can you imagine!?). Do you think, at some point during that year, Noah and his family questioned whether or not God knew what He was doing? Was He actually in control? Would He, could He, make good on His word? Sometimes in our lives, we are left to wonder if God is going to come through. He will, just as He did with Noah. Afterwards, God promised Noah that no matter how bad it got, He would never again destroy the world by a flood. We are reminded of God’s promise every time we see a rainbow. Surely mankind learned its lesson from the flood event, right? No such luck. Soon after the flood, as the population began to grow, mankind again decided to act independently of God. That is sometimes true of us, isn’t it? We experience God’s faithfulness, only to quickly forget and go back to life as usual, as if He isn’t in control. Today, thank God for His faithfulness and goodness to you, ask Him to help you keep the right perspective, and then commit yourself to His leading in your life.
