Noah found favor with the Lord. Genesis 6:5-8

Screen Shot 2014-12-03 at 10.52.46 PMGod was so upset at the sinful world that his heart broke. He decides to flood the earth, and wipe everyone out. Except Noah. Noah found favor in God’s eyes, and God decided to spare him.

Today we remember that God feels. He feels with us. He can feel our pain, our joy. “God tied His heart to yours so when you feel pain, He fills with pain.” But for this very reason, we can find favor. “We find favor – only because Christ feels pain.”

“Every flood of trouble remakes the topography of our souls – making us better or biter. Every trouble is a flood, and we can either rise up or sink down…Grace…The way heaven comes down so we can rise.”
