“But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark.”
Have you ever thought God has forgotten you? You have prayed for days, weeks, months even years for a particular change in circumstances, perhaps for your healing, or a relationship or financial freedom. Let me assure you, you’re not alone in feeling like you are forgotten.
In our digital age, when everything must happen in the instant and to our satisfaction, we can get impatient, insistent with God and try to take things into our own hands. Alternately we become passive, not active in our believing for God to actually breakthrough undermining our prayerfulness and faith.
We read here that God ‘remembered’ Noah and the animals. Clearly, God was aware of what was happening for Noah, the earth and the animals. But a process of time needed to be completed. This passing of time can be the difficult to navigate as we so often do not know what is happening, which may be as natural a process as was happening here with the flood. But we should not think God has forgotten us. He has not forgotten us, He is awaiting the opportune time.
Father, help me to be expectantly patient, full of faith in the waits that I am currently experiencing prior to the deliverance You alone can bring.
