Preaching To Myself Today…

I posted something on my Facebook recently about Noah…and promises…and waiting…

Here is my status update from June 2nd @ 10:12 am:

When God ordains your ‪#‎Mission‬, you don’t have to go searching for your Promise!

In Genesis chapter 7 notice that when it’s time for Noah and the animals to load the ark, Noah doesn’t have to go ‪#‎Gather‬ the animals. They ‘came to Noah’ and entered the ark!

That call you are waiting on, that message that’s coming, that ministry opportunity in your future…

God sees, God knows, God hears…

Don’t lose sight of your ‪#‎Vision‬, your ‪#‎Promise‬ is coming!

“Pairs of clean and unclean animals, of birds and of all creatures that move along the ground, male and female, came to Noah and entered the ark, as God had commanded Noah.”Genesis 7:8-9

And like I mentioned above, I was/am absolutely ‘preachin’ to myself’ here!  But as I was pondering on this truth, God spoke something deeper to me…a warning, if you will.  Noah did not have to go searching for his promise…God walked it right up to his front door!  (Thank you Lord!) But once that took place something else happened…

Let’s go a little further down to verse 12:

“And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.”

The animals walked in…but then the doors were shut again…for awhile

It would still be some time before that Promise came full circle.  As a matter of fact, it wasn’t for another 2 chapters!

I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.”  And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”  So God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth.” Genesis 9:11-17

Friends, your promise is coming!…but do not get discouraged if you see a portion of your promise and then have to wait again…

“The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.”Lamentations 3:25
