We Are Blessed

dotOur Thoughts:

Man has been blessed from the foundation of the earth. God blessed Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden. They were given dominion over the earth, and God told them to be frutiful and multiply, and replenish the earth. But, the enemy got in the plan. 'stole the Word', and their perfect life was no longer perfect. Sin came in which placed a death sentence upon them. They saw thenselves 'naked' and ran to hide. There was no longer 'freedom' to do as they had before.

Then along came Noah, son of Lamech. He was seen as a 'just man and perfect in his generations'.[Gen 6:9] But the earth had been populated by the descendants of Cain and Seth, and the people were very ungodly. God was disturbed, and he meant to 'clean up' the earth. He ordered Noah to build the Ark. Now, the Ark wasn't built over night. On the contrary: it took one hundred and twenty years to build - plenty of time for the people to 'straighten up' their lives. But, they didn't. When the Ark was built, God commanded Noah to place all the clean animals on the Ark, then take his wife and family on. Then, God shut them in, and the 'rain fell'! The earth was cleaned of all creation that was left outside the earth. But, God had told Noah he would place his covenant upon him and his family. He sealed the covenant with the rainbow.

Although sin still abounds in this earth, we were given a new start with Noah. God's promises still stand today. Although we may feel that we aren't blessed, we can look around us and realize that God's hand still rests on His people today. The sinners are destined for a worse life, unless they find mercy through Christ. But, Christians have a hope in another world - eternity to be spent in the presence of the King. We may not be materially or financially wealthy on earth, but endure until the end, and we have a rich reward that can't be measured on earth!

dotGod's Thoughts:

Genesis 5:2 Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created.
Genesis 9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

dotOur Cup:

Heavenly Father, in our own eyes, we may seem very poor - in riches on earth. But, we know, if we endure until the end, you have the greatest of rewards. Help us reach out to others that are missing out on the blessings that you intended for every man. We give you praise! In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.
