November 17

The heroes of the past were the ones who resisted the edicts of the tyrants and fought against oppression. There are ways to fight back without getting involved; look at what Noah did.

By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith. Hebrews 11:7

He was the original “conspiracy theorist!” He did what was necessary to save his household by following the orders of God. He didn’t mix in with the vulgarity of the people but prepared for the wrath of God that would come against them. The situation wasn’t ideal. Imagine how much work it must have been caring for all those animals; feeding and cleaning up after them was probably a lot of work, and imagine the smells. However, they endured, followed the commands of God, and lived. I guess life will become uncomfortable for us too, but in the end, he will save us. God will clean the earth of the evil tyrants and straighten up their unrighteous deeds. You can count on it!
