God set Noah apart, a sinner, unlike his mockers, yet still in need of sanctification. As God was birthing a new, faithful seed, Noah was smart to start, in spite of his critics. Noah understood what standing alone meant, with no friends, and worse, evil busybodies who lacked understanding and taunted him. Even Noah wasn't sure he understood, but he faithfully kept going.
Gradually, God's design took greater shape, and reality emerged an awesome wonder. Surely Noah must have astounded even himself. What was this vision, with words foreign to reality's picture? What was rain, flooding --occurrences then alien to human, perceptual understanding. Yet, amid little understanding, faith remained Noah's driving force, Noah's knowing.
Noah grew older and his hands became stronger and calloused. Noah's leap of faith meant fearing God, not man. Faith brought completion as Noah finished his task.
The time arrived as Noah and family and animals boarded God's vehicle to salvation. The Lord Himself, the door without specifications and form, yet perfect and complete, closed the past and opened the Heavens to Noah's new beginning. But, had Noah refused to begin, God's plan would be incomplete.
You're never too old to start, and with faith at the helm, He'll carry you to the finish! Noah made waves, and God rocked the boat that carried Noah through.
