Water everywhere!

“In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, on the seventeenth day of the second month – on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened.” Genesis 7:11.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: Genesis 5-8, and Luke 3.

I am looking out today at drizzle.

Wondering what the outbursts of water from above and below must have been like as described in today’s verse.

This was water that was not limited to an area.  This was water that gathered on the whole world.

Verse 20 says that the waters covered the tops of mountains by more than 23 feet!  How can any of us imagine what a deluge this must have been.

God is in control.  He can send moisture.  He can restrict moisture.  We are at the mercy of God getting the “water timing” right.  We can’t live without water or with too much water.  BUT He is in charge and knows our needs.

God is trustworthy.  Will I trust Him with my life?  Will I recognize how awesome He is and has been?

“Lord, You are great.  Your manipulation of water in the Noah story is beyond comprehension.  I will never know Your Ways unless You show them to me.  I want to read (Your Word) and heed its instruction.  Help me to do it. I need You, Lord.”

God is the Head of the water department.
