From Email Cana 90 – Day 19
What flavor is your favor?
” The LORD saw how great the wickedness of human beings was on earth, and how every desire that their heart conceived was always nothing but evil…But Noah found favor with the LORD.”
~ Genesis 5:5, 9
When I reflect on this passage I have two reactions; an understanding of the frustration the Lord had looking at humanity and a curiosity to how Noah found favor.
Noah wasn’t perfect by any means, so how did he find favor? He was in dialogue with the Lord, they talked, in other words he prayed. In fact, a few lines down we read “When God saw how corrupt the earth had become, since all mortals had corrupted their ways on earth. God said to Noah …” (Gen. 5:12-13a).
Where are you angry in your marriage/family? These areas need greater dialogue. Assess where and how you need to have better communication, remembering that you are not God. Act on it.
We are into the 3rd full week of Lent. How is your prayer? If God wanted to tell you something important enough to save your family, would you hear it?
