Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

I’m so glad you could join me today. He has ordained this time for us and I hope you have enjoyed the first three parts of this month’s Words of Wisdom and Weapons of Warfare (WOW). Grab your coffee and come on in.

I know it’s been a long way around to these two verses found in Genesis, but I hope you are better able to recognize the power they have to transform us. If we allow them to really penetrate into the eyes of our hearts, we will catch a glimpse of just how we look in the eyes of the Lord.

After that long rabbit trail about the population and generations of Noah before the Flood, I feel as though I’ve grasped a better appreciation for just how far and wide the Lord had to search to find one righteous man. It was like looking for a needle in a haystack! My heart breaks at the thought especially considering how what used to be wrong is right and what was once right is now wrong. Okay, enough of that; after all, we don’t have a camera into the hearts of His creation.

I can’t help but think about Him looking down now and though I’m not certain how many “blameless” there are, one thing I am certain of: By the time it’s all said and done here on earth, everyone will have received the opportunity and choice to walk with God, to see himself or herself as He does! 🙂 Let’s get to the conclusion of our WOW.

Verse 9 says: “These are the records of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time”STOP!

So when I first read that, I was reading from my NKJV which states “perfect” instead of blameless. Well, my critical self rose up after that portion and I said aloud, not even keeping it in my mind, “He wasn’t perfect. How could he be perfect?”

And then I read on: “Noah walked with God!”

Bingo! The light is on; somebody is home. I get it! I really do. No, Noah wasn’t perfect; but because he walked with God, he was blameless!

Oh, friend, I so pray that you get that vision; that you would put your name in for Noah’s and get the same view our Father sees of you when you are walking with Him.

Go ahead; put your name in there: __________ is a righteous woman, blameless in her time; (because) _________ walks with God!

Oh, may we take Him where ever we walk through this life.
