Noah Walked with
But Noah found
grace in the eyes of the LORD. . . Noah was a just man, perfect in his
generations. Noah walked with God. (Genesis 6:8-9)
No matter how ungodly the environment you may be in, God will always
find you and walk with you. Noah lived in perhaps the most wicked age in
history. No one worshiped God. All the people worshiped idols and pursued their
own sinful pleasures. Noah's neighbors were evil; every person he associated
with in the marketplace, or along the street, or in public gatherings,
ridiculed the very thought of being faithful to God. Every temptation
imaginable was abundantly available to Noah. How oppressive such an environment
would have been to a righteous person!
The people of Noah's day were so wicked that God planned the most
complete and drastic act of judgment recorded in Scripture. Nevertheless, Noah
was not lost to God in the crowd of sinners. God noticed every act of Noah's
righteousness. Noah had chosen to live uprightly before God despite what
everyone around him was doing, and God had observed him. There may have been
times when Noah wondered if it mattered if he lived a righteous life, since no
one else was. Yet he continued, and his persistence in righteousness saved his
life and the lives of his family members.
Are you constantly surrounded by evil? Do you struggle at times to live
a righteous life when those you associate with each day have no concern for
God? Find assurance in the life of Noah. God watches you, even as He observed
Noah. God will seek you out of the crowd every time, and He wants to bless you
and your family just as He blessed Noah.
