Good Morning. 

Then God spoke to Noah, saying, “Go out of the ark, you and your wife, and your sons and your sons’ wives with you. Bring out with you every living thing of all flesh that is with you: birds and cattle and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, so that they may abound on the earth, and be fruitful and multiply on the earth.” (Genesis 8:15-17)

Once they were permitted to leave the ark, Noah and his family were given the same instructions that had been given to Adam and Eve before him — “be fruitful and multiply.” This is to indicate that, though the Flood had been catastrophic, God’s plan for man and for the rest of His Creation would not be abandoned nor derailed by the actions of rebels. What He intended from the beginning would be resumed.

This is important for all of us to be reminded of seeing that, so often, things happen to interrupt our plans causing us to wonder if His plan for us has been derailed. In other words when catastrophe strikes, it is typical of us to consider that those things He has promised to us must consequently be forgotten or revised completely.

Consider Joseph: God promised to raise him us and create circumstances whereby his brethren would bow to him. However, those same brethren sold him into slavery, and for many years, he was an exile completely cut off from his family and his homeland. He even named his firstborn son “Manasseh” which means “to forget” because he said, “I have forgotten my father’s house.” But just because he forgot those things promised to him, God didn’t — true to His Word, He caused the plan for Joseph to become a reality. What man had intended for evil, God intended for good.

And so, today, let us resolve in our hearts that, in spite of those things that may interrupt our plans, God’s plan for us and our family will prevail as long as we are faithful to Him. As Paul said, we can be  “confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Yeshua the Messiah” (Philippians 1:6).

Blessings and Shalom,
