Who do you trust?

During difficult situations who do you trust?

Do you trust the warning signs?  Or ignore them?

Lately, the movie "Noah" has been in the news a lot.  Some pro, some con and honestly I haven't even been to it.  I planned to, but haven't made it yet.  I am bringing it up because of the story of Noah.  The story found in the Bible Noah...

Imagine the turmoil that surrounded Noah and the building of the ark.  All the neighbors, all the people shouting look at crazy Noah and yet he continued to build the ark.  He built, because he trusted God not the people that were surrounding him shouting and doing evil all around him.

Who are we trusting?

Evil surrounds us.   We know who we need to trust...but do we?

I woke up this morning thinking about when we know something is about to happen that is bad we prepare, right?  Well, God was warning all the people surrounding Noah, but they weren't listening or trusting his words. 

Noah's unnamed wife.  Trusted her husband and got on the ark.  What is it today that perhaps God might be leading your husband to do that perhaps you think he is crazy?  Well, perhaps this is your Ms. Noah moment that you need to trust your husband and respond with YES.  

Noah's wife is a woman we know very little about other than she supported her husband.  Now honestly, wouldn't that have been hard to do?  It is sunshine as far as you can see and your husband is in the yard building a boat the size of a football field?  Yet, she boarded the boat and believed!

Sometimes, we are called to trust!  Trust and look to God!

Psalm 9:10
Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.

Trusting in the LORD,
