But God remembered Noah… (v 1)
That one phrase spoke to me this morning – God remembered Noah. Not in a “suddenly remembered” kind of way but in an “always remembered” kind of way. Noah was never forgotten not even for a moment.
When he was living righteously in a world that was continually wicked – God remembered Noah.
When he was building a boat in the middle of the desert and enduring mockery for doing it – God remembered Noah.
When he faithfully entered that boat and the rains fell and the waves rocked – God remembered Noah.
“Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb?
Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you.” (Isaiah 49:15)
When the world is wicked – God remembers you.
When friends are fickle – God remembers you.
When the situation is scary – God remembers you.
When the diagnosis is devastating – God remembers you.
When the rains rock the boat – God remembers you.
You are loved with an everlasting – never forgotten – never forsaken – never standing alone – kind of love.
