Genesis 8:1, 8 NIV 2011
But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded.
He sent out a dove to see if the water had dried up from the earth.
Noah and family were in the ark 150 days. Genesis 7:24, “The waters flooded the earth for a hundred and fifty days.” Noah did not hear from God but knew He wouldn’t forget His people. Nehemiah asked God to remember him. Nehemiah 5:19, “Remember me with favor, my God, for all I have done for these people.” God does not forget His people. Hebrews 6:10, “God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown to him as you have helped the people and continue to help them.” God knows and remembers His people.
How many times as a wife and mother have I felt forgotten by my family? As a young mom between caring for two little’s and one in school, those days were endless. Laundry, meal prep and keeping the house in order were a stretch. Did anybody notice or care about all I did? I was the go-to person when the going got tough even when my road was a bit rocky. I wasn’t alone through the stormy seas; God was there. He knows and remembers me daily.
Where’s God working behind the scenes today?
He knows us,
