The Flood View video
Genesis 7:1 - 7:12
1. The LORD then said to Noah, "Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation.
2. Take with you seven of every kind of clean animal, a male and its mate, and two of every kind of unclean animal, a male and its mate,
3. and also seven of every kind of bird, male and female, to keep their various kinds alive throughout the earth.
4. Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made."
5. And Noah did all that the LORD commanded him.
6. Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters came on the earth.
7. And Noah and his sons and his wife and his sons' wives entered the ark to escape the waters of the flood.
8. Pairs of clean and unclean animals, of birds and of all creatures that move along the ground,
9. male and female, came to Noah and entered the ark, as God had commanded Noah.
10. And after the seven days the floodwaters came on the earth.
11. In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, on the seventeenth day of the second month--on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened.
12. And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights.
Step by Step (7:1–5)
What is noteworthy in these verses is how detailed God is in instructing Noah about building and loading the ark—even letting him know the timeframe of events to come. God does not leave Noah to figure things out after giving him this daunting assignment. Rather, He walks with Noah and teaches him what to do. This is true of our discipleship as well. When we receive Jesus, God does not just leave us to navigate through life on our own but gives us His Holy Spirit to be with us and to lead us step by step. His words revealed to us in Scripture are precise and clear, and He has appointed shepherds, teachers, and fellow disciples to guide and walk alongside us.

Just Like He Said (7:6–12)
God fulfills His words exactly as He told Noah: after seven days, the flood waters come upon the earth and the ark preserves Noah, his family, and the animals that are inside. Noah is six hundred years old when the flood begins, and seeing that he was five hundred years old when his sons were born, there is a long period of time before God’s plans for him come to fulfillment. We can only imagine the ridicule Noah must have endured as he built the ark and called his wicked generation to repentance. Similarly, Christians may suffer scorn from the unbelieving world. However, God is true in all that He says. His plans for us and for this world will come to pass.
- How is God discipling you step by step? When have God’s instructions in Scripture helped you navigate a challenging situation?

- What are some promises of God that you are waiting for Him to fulfill? How do you keep courage as you wait?
A Letter to God
Father, open the eyes of my heart that I may hold on to Your promises by faith. Help me not to set my hopes on what my eyes can see, but lead me to behold the glories that are yet to come. In Jesus’ name, amen.
