The waiting game

Well there had been plenty of thrills and spills. Especially spills. Forty days and nights to be precise. Then the rain stopped, and all there was, was water…and wind…and more water. According to Genesis 8 v 3, it was like that for around 10 months. We know the end of the story, that it all came out alright in the finish.

But if you are sitting around, going nowhere, maybe in the same 4 walls, with limited social interraction, you do start to wonder if God’s forgotten you, or if you heard right. There’s no indication that God was trying to help Noah and his family develop the fruit of patience. And he hadn’t got it wrong – he had been thoroughly obedient and righteous.It simply took that long. You just can’t rush the things of God. And it did come out alright in the finish.
