Sharing another message from my friend Lisa. We both recently purchased the She Reads Truth Bible and are reading it along with the Foundations 260-Day Bible Reading Plan for Busy Believers by Robby and Kandi Gallaty. If you are seeking a daily Bible study and would like more information on either of these, please message me. They are both AMAZING and great when used together!

Good morning world. Loved hearing the pages of my Bible being turned this morning as I read from Genesis, Matthew, Ezra and Acts. Of course, Noah’s story is one that always astonishes me. God regretted making mankind and he was grieved. So he instructed Noah to build an ark. He was going to destroy everything with a flood. Noah, his family, and a male and female of every living creature would be allowed in the ark to survive the flood.
I sat here and imagined if that were to happen today. Am I walking with God in a way that He would choose me out of the entire world to build an ark? Most likely not. Even if He did, would I be obedient enough to follow through? Or would I talk to my inner circle and say, “you won’t believe what I have been asked to do!?” I would make a list of the pros and cons. Maybe I would even try and bargain with God. Crazy I know.
Wickedness still exists on earth and I know God still grieves. The good news is that He sent Jesus to save us from an eternal death because of our sin. I want a faith and obedience like Noah. God may not ask me to build an ark but He does ask me to do other things. Sometimes I am obedient and sometimes I am not. May 2018 be the year I completely surrender my desire to be in control and to humbly do all that I am asked to do by God Almighty. #abiding
