So Noah and those with him were cooped up and adrift with death and destruction swirling all around them.
For a long time.
With nowhere to go.
Stuck, in a sense. Safe, yes, but “stranded” in the ark.
God had remembered to preserve them from the death and destruction.
But what about after the horrible episode was over?
“And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark…” (1).
God still remembers!
“After the test, rest” — I just thought of that one.
And this one: “During the test, rest.”
I’ll take a mega size order of after-rest and an even bigger one of during-rest, please.
from Genesis 8:1
