When God’s power and wrath were given full sway by Him, of course the earth was literally washed way. Animals of all kinds, save for those on the Ark, gone. God’s most precious creation – mankind – also gone, save for Noah and his family. When God rains justice, it is total.
1. Do we often ponder the power of God and His will?
2. Do we think about what happens if we choose to cross God and disobey His will for us?
Challenge: God loves His children very much, but He cannot and will not tolerate evil. As shown here, He will wipe it away absolutely clean. Let us remember that He is truly the Lord of the universe, and that He ordains our days from the moment we’re born to the day He calls us home. It is a day to look forward to for believers, unlike those in the time of Noah. Amen.
