Bible Story Reference: Genesis 6:11-22
Proverbs 2:7 (NIV)
He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless.
God knew that everyone on earth was terribly cruel and violent. Sin had entered the world after Adam and Eve left the garden. So, God spoke to one special man named Noah.
“There is violence and cruelty everywhere,” God said. “So, I am going to destroy the whole earth and everyone on it. Get some good wood and build a boat. Create rooms in it and cover it with tar on the inside and outside. Make it 138 meters long, 22 meters wide, and 14 meters high.
Make a roof on the boat and leave about half a meter between the roof and the sides. Make the boat three stories high and put a door on only one side.”
“I am going to send a flood to destroy everything!” God continued. “Nothing will survive. But I promise that you and your family will be kept safe in the boat.”
God also told Noah to bring a male and female of every kind of animal on the boat with him.
“Store up enough food for your family and you and all the animals as well,” God said.
Noah obeyed God. Noah did everything God said to do.
God did not surprise Noah. The flood came just as God said it would. The rain lasted forty days and nights. But Noah had obeyed God. Because of God’s mercy, he saved Noah from the flood.Because of Noah’s obedience, his family and the animals were saved, too.
Thank you for all you have given me. I want to honour you always. Amen.
This is to remind us of God’s promise after the flood.
