Steve The Sheep

You Do Your Part, I’ll Do Mine

 

Parable Description: The story of Noah’s sons. What happens when God tells dad to build an ark? And what do you do when God is “slow” in keeping his promise.

Devotional Description: A reflection on Genesis 7:710. God will always honor his promises. Always. Waiting in trust and obedience on God is hard work. He is faithful in all things. Our task is to trust and obey him totally. God uses waiting as his way of teaching us how to trust and obey him. Waiting is God’s gift to us. He is faithful. Now, it’s our turn.
