06 January: Substantiating a Story

Scientists today wonder what will happen to our planet if it’s hit by a meteorite. Today’s chapter documents the beginning of life, after the last global catastrophe…

READ GENESIS 8  Make notes, if you’d like, of what stands out for you. Feel free to use the “Leave a Comment” box below to also write some of your thoughts.

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

When substantiating a story, it’ll be the existence of hard to believe detail, numbers, and dates that point to authenticity. These chapters reverse the logic of an intelligent lie. The exact number of days that Noah and his family were inside the Ark, even remaining inside almost two months after it came to rest; and the date on which they came out; all point to someone truthfully recounting exactly what happened.

Is This Noah's Ark?

Is This Noah’s Ark in Turkey?

The reason for this level of exact detail is not to substantiate a story. The Creator God doesn’t need us to believe Him. Instead, it’s to show us what our Maker is like. He doesn’t do random, everything is significant, perfectly connected and with a serious explanation. So if the record is so exact long before computers and digital filing systems were invented, then the record concerning us will also be exact. Jesus said: “even the very hairs of your head are all numbered.”[a]

What stands out for me today is that the God who created this planet in the first place, knows every detail of everything that has happened, and will happen, on Earth. I can trust History, miraculously preserved for me to read today. That being so, I can trust my Maker for the details in my own story….Read More? … CLICK to follow “06 January – Additional Notes”

THE LORD’S PRAYER:

   1.   Praise: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come! Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven …”

For the nations to glorify You for Your mercy, Lord, let me also do as Your Word says: “Therefore I’ll give praise to You among the Nations, And I’ll sing to Your Name.” [Romans 15:9]

   2.   Ask: “…Give us today our daily bread…”

  • The World: Issues you know of around the World[c]
  • Your Country: Campus Ministries
  • Yourself: Faithfulness with your treasures[d]
  • Your concerns for today
Have regard to the prayer of Your servant and to my supplication, O Lord my God. Listen to my cry and to the prayer I pray before You today. [1 Kings 8:28]

   3.   Admit: “…Forgive us our sin as we forgive those who sin against us…”

Father God help me not to stiffen my neck like my forefathers. I want to yield to the Lord and enter Your sanctuary which You’ve consecrated forever. May I serve You Lord my God, that Your burning anger may turn away from me. [2 Chronicles 30:8]

   4.   Protect: “…Lead us not into temptation but delivers us from evil.”

As I go about my day, let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my rock and my Redeemer. [Psalm 19:14]

“For Yours Lord is the Kingdom, the Power and the Glory now and forever. Amen!”
