13 So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. 14 So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. 15 This is how you are to build it: The ark is to be 450 feet long, 75 feet wide and 45 feet high. Genesis 6:13-14
Noah had never thought that big before. But the times demanded it. A season was coming unlike any other. It wasn’t a rainy season or even a monsoon. Instead a tsunami was on its way. A big boat had to be built.
We can get in life a “steady state” perspective, where we think that things will be as they always have been. But when God changes a season our perspectives must expand.
Father, help me to think big as you think big. Amen.
