Build A Boat

Following are words written well that I find particularly helpful at this moment. Sometimes I don’t feel smart enough or capable enough for the task that stretches before me. I know I am not worthy of it. And yet, these are the things I think and think I know.

When God wants us to do something, we simply have to understand that what we ‘think’ and ‘think we know’ are not relevant. What we must do is think outside the ‘box’ that our brain comes in and realize the power that created the entire universe is behind each one of us.

“Yep. That’s big.”

The author is known simply as “Beejai” and his blog is worth following.

THE RIVER WALK

build a boat

So Noah did everything as the Lord commanded him. (Genesis 7:5)

Read: Genesis 3:1-4:26, Matthew 3:7-4:11, Psalm 3:1-8, Proverbs 1:10-19

Relate: “Build a boat.”

“But God, I don’t want to move. My family is pretty settled here and the coast is an awful long way off. They don’t even speak the same language down there.”

“I didn’t tell you to move. I said build a boat.”

“A boat.”

“Yes. Build a boat. A big one.”

“Ummmm… how big is big?”

“450 feet long, 75 feet wide, 45 feet high.”

Gulp. “Yep. That’s big. Why does it need to be so big?”

“It will contain a zoo.”

“A zoo, inside a boat, in the desert…”

“Yes. Because it is going to rain. A lot.”

“Ummmm God? What’s rain?”

React: “You’re insane?” Has anyone ever said that to us when we begin to step out in obedience to what God has called us to do?…

  1. Thanks for sharing the helpful words. Right now I am in a transition and it is nice to be reminded that God is in control. My job is to be obedience not try and become all knowing.
