Blessings of Walking In Close Fellowship With God

…Noah was a righteous man,

the only blameless person living on earth at the time,

and he walked in close fellowship with God.

…God saw that the earth had become corrupt

and was filled with violence.

So God said to Noah,

“I have decided to destroy all living creatures,

for they have filled the earth with violence…

Build a large boat…


I am about to cover the earth with a flood

that will destroy every living thing that breathes.

Everything on earth will die.

But I will confirm my covenant with you.

Go into the boat with all your family,

for among all the people of the earth,

I can see that you alone are righteous.

So Noah did everything as the LORD commanded him.

Genesis 6:9,11,13,14,17;7:1,5

Blessings of Seeking The LORD’s Favor

The LORD observed the extent

of human wickedness on the earth,

and he saw that everything they thought or imagined

was consistently and totally evil.

So the LORD was sorry he had ever made them

and put them on the earth.

It broke his heart.

And the LORD said,

“I will wipe this human race I have created

from the face of the earth…

I am sorry I ever made them.”

But Noah found favor with the LORD.

Genesis 6:5-8
