  • Genesis 5:1-6:22

 “This one will comfort us.” –Genesis 5:29

Having never truly noticed this verse before, God highlighted it to me like a beacon in the night. How was Noah a comfort? Yes, he did some pretty, well interesting, things by external standards. From my “Sunday School Theology,” all Noah did was follow God.

“Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.” –Genesis 6:22

And that is the comfort. Noah didn’t have to figure it out on his own. He didn’t have to create greatness. God gave Noah direction, instruction, and even a blueprint for what He wanted Noah to do. And Noah did it.

You and I can take comfort that the God who called and equipped Noah calls and equips us. Stop trying so hard and simply do whatever God is asking.

“Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.” –Genesis 6:22
