As a child of The Most High, storms will rage in your life. Not because you are favored and loved of Elohim as His son / daughter it doesn’t exempt you from storms of life.
The only difference is, ABBA Yah is with you protecting you, undergirding and strengthening you. Amein!!
“Adonai said to Noach, “Come into the ark, you and all your household; for I have seen that you alone in this generation are righteous before me. Of every clean animal you are to take seven couples, and of the animals that are not clean, one couple; also of the birds in the air take seven couples — in order to preserve their species throughout the earth. For in seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights; I will wipe out every living thing that I have made from the face of the earth.” Noach did all that Adonai ordered him to do. After seven days the water flooded the earth…..
….. On the seventeenth day of the second month of the 600th year of Noach’s life all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of the sky were opened. It rained on the earth forty days and forty nights,”Genesis 7:1-5,110-12 (CJB).
“God remembered Noach, every living thing and all the livestock with him in the ark; so God caused a wind to pass over the earth, and the water began to go down. Also the fountains of the deep and the windows of the sky were stopped, the rain from the sky was restrained, and the water came back from completely covering the earth. It was after 150 days that the water went down. On the seventeenth day of the seventh month the ark came to rest on the mountains of Ararat. The water kept going down until the tenth month; on the first day of the tenth month the tops of the mountains were seen… After forty days Noach opened the window of the ark which he had built,”Genesis 8:1-6 (CJB).
Look at that there. NOAH did all he could to be obedient in building that ark even in the midst of opposition, mockers, unbelievers jeering him calling him a dumb drunk.
Yet, he persisted… Favored and loved of Elohim yet, NOAH was still caught in the midst of that storm! Obedient, the operative word, but still caught in the midst of the storm..
I can imagine NOAH may have been saying “Father, why after all this you forsake me, you left me alone, seems you forgot about me?” What about ME!!??
But the Bible says, “GOD REMEMBERED NOAH!”
Not only NOAH but all that was there with him. You see in life when you’re going through your storms, that’s when the people around you are unveiled, their true identities and nature and heart toward you.
Some have animalistic nature, similar to the animals NOAH had in the ark. You can’t relate to them, because they don’t understand.
You can’t open up to them because of trust issues. While others are just fierce and unkind. But God as he remembered NOAH so will he remember you and who were there for you during your storms.
Many could’ve helped they didn’t! They knew the situation, but scorned and stood away.
They’ll be repaid too! Proverbs 3:27 declares, “Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it.”
In this season, for every person who as much as gave even an encouraging Word, as Father lifts you, so shall they be lifted also.
God shall remember every thing done good or bad, because it’s payback season.
Many times mishaps occur and we blame the devil, not perceiving it’s the hand of Jehovah himself. Because, in order for him to lift us up, we must be brought low!!
Noah must have been in God’s face while sheltered in that ark during that rough time. That SECRET PLACE!
Any building with a strong structure has its foundation way deep down below. It determines it’s strength.
AS A SERVANT OF THE MOST HIGH I SAY TO YOU, Watch the hand of ELOHIM in this season and the hand is called RECOMPENSE AND RESTITUTION!
Saints, it was God himself who rested the Ark on Mount ARARAT?
I declare to you that this is also a season of REST.
Isn’t God intentional?
Also see definition of “Ararat” in Word Study: Hebrew. Strongs #0780: jrra ‘Ararat. Ararat = “the curse reversed: precipitation of curse”
When the hand of Elohim is on your life He sometimes leads you to dark and stormy places.. It’s that same hand that will lead you out.
