Genesis 8:1 God Remembers You

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. Genesis 8:1

Being remembered is something that most people like. No one likes it when they go up to someone that they know and the person does not remember them.

Not being remembered will often give a person a sense of worthlessness or no value. Many people fall into great depression because they feel that no one remembers them or recognizes them as a person.

After being on being on the ark, in a storm, for forty days, as the earth was flooded, God remembered Noah and all the animals with him. God then began to dry up the earth and remove the flooded water.

One of the greatest feelings that a person feels when going through a bad situation is that he is all alone, and no one remembers him. Often it is the feeling that no one else knows or understands what he is going through.

Some believers tend to feel this way. They feel as though God has forgotten them and is out helping someone else. All that can be seen and felt is the tough situation that is in their immediate world.

God never leaves a person completely alone. He never leaves or forsakes a person, even when in the most difficult of times. However, He does allow trials and tribulations to come into one’s life that may appear as though He abandoned him.

Once the trial has done its work, God remembers the person and sets things right again. It may not be back to what it was, but it is in a new place on the journey of life towards heaven. The believer needs to trust God through the trial in life and know that God remembers him.

At some point you will have a flood of trials and tribulations in your life that may appear to go for forty days and nights. Do not lose hope in God. He will not abandon or forsake you.

Lean on the promises of God, knowing that He loves you and works all things for your good. You are not forgotten by God but are being held in the palm of His hand, being conformed into the image of Jesus through these trials and tribulations.

Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will know God’s promises to you; that you will know God’s presence in your life each day; that you will trust God’s work in your life; and that God will strengthen you during every trail that comes your way.
