So God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth”. Genesis 9:1 NKJV
How much difference can one person make? Can one person bless generations of people? Can one person change the eternal destiny of multitudes of people?
God determined to destroy men from the face of the earth because of the wickedness He could see in their hearts.
God looks at the things we do today. He looks at the motivation for the things we do today. God sees straight into our hearts. He sees the secret things of our hearts no one else can see!
God would have destroyed the earth if Noah had not found grace in His eyes. If not for Noah God would have destroyed all the people living on the Earth. God could see into Noah’s heart. He could see that Noah was a righteous man.
Noah was just a man. He sinned. He made mistakes. He was not perfect. God saw something in Noah’s heart that made him different than others. God saw that Noah had a desire to please God. Noah desired to live according to God’s good and perfect plan for his life!
Noah made a difference in the lives of all people who would walk upon the face of the Earth. Noah made a difference in the eternal destiny of multitudes of people.
Noah allowed God to do a great and mighty work in his life. Noah surrendered his life to be used by God. It was God who did the work. Noah allowed himself to be used by God.
A good friend told me that ministry is being available to be used by the Lord. Our job is to be available and willing so God can do what He wants with our lives.
One man or woman can make a difference. One righteous person can impact the lives of generations of people. One obedient person can make a difference in the eternal destiny of multitudes!
God used Noah to destroy a wicked and perverse generation. God did it because He loves us. God used Noah to restore righteousness upon the Earth and in the hearts of men. God used Noah to bless us so we could be fruitful and multiply today!
God is committed to blessing us today. He is committed to loving us unconditionally today. The Lord is committed to giving us what we need when we need it to live Godly lives that will bring glory and honor to His name!
The Lord can use you to bless generations of people. Be fruitful through faith in Jesus!
