Today’s Word Of Encouragement From Wayne:
“But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord”
This verse from Genesis came right after God had said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the earth” (vs. 7). Mankind was reveling in wickedness, but not Noah. Rather than being led into wickedness with the world, Noah was spending time with God, and Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
We can look at this beautiful verse in two ways.
First, and most obvious, is that God looked upon Noah with favor. “Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord.”
Secondly though, is that Noah walked with God, in fellowship, worship, and devotion. As Noah walked with God, and knew God, Noah by faith looked into the eyes of His God and saw favor.
Today, for you and I, God has shown us exceedingly great favor and grace through salvation and His continuing presence in our lives. So let us also, like Noah, look up into the eyes of our Lord God and see His favor.
Yes, let us look into His face, as we minister to our Lord as priests in His presence, and let us see His “favor” towards us and within us. Let us behold our God even as we worship Him, so that we may always be receiving His amazing grace and favor.
See your Lord looking right at you with the sunshine of grace and favor in His eyes towards you. See, receive, be blessed, and give thanks.
Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord and so do we. See His favor upon you and within you today. Step into His presence, look into His face, minister to your Lord, and let His favor flow within you like a river of living water. Hallelujah!
