Quiet Time: Favor With God

Favor With God

But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD... Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time; Noah walked with God. -  Genesis 6:8 & 9

The whole world was going nuts, following every sin and source of debauchury imaginable. One man and his family stood alone unmoved by the sea of filth surrounding them. Noah. 

How was it possible for this pitiful little band of believers in the living God to maintain their faith and integrity under such unrelenting pressure to conform? They chose to walk by faith just like their great great grandfather, Enoch, had done.

Like Enoch, Noah, strove to walk through each day and face every circumstance as if God were right there with him. Noah chose to do what God told him to do which led him to walk in righteousness regardless of the daily challenge to change.

This world constantly works to divert our attention from the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. We must set our hand to the task … lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and run with endurance the race that is set before us, - Hebrews 12:1

Favor with God is found by walking in faith.

Do not grow weary (Gal. 6:9)
