Devotion on Genesis 8 - He Sent a Wind

Scripture: Genesis 8:1-2
But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded.

In Genesis 8:2, we read that God sent a wind over the earth that caused the waters of the Flood to recede. God remembered Noah and brought an end to the Flood. Do you believe that God will remember you in the midst of your troubles too?

When the flood waters of life seem to be tossing you around and threatening you every moment, God will remember you and send a fresh breeze to calm your troubles, just as He did with the Flood. But you may have to wait a while for that to happen. Noah couldn't step right out of the ark. He had to send out the raven and then, the dove, and then, the dove again. God will send that wind of change in our lives, but we have to be patient.

We also have to pay attention to the signs He's giving us. Stay in tune with God so that you can feel the breeze of change blowing, and try to see what He's doing in your life. Can you see the dove returning with the olive leaf in its mouth in your life? If you can't see it yet - if you can't see your life changing yet - keep looking and have hope that God will remember you in your troubles.

  • God will remember you.
  • God will bring change to your life.
  • Wait for it in patience.
  • Stay in tune with God.
  • Watch for the signs.
