GET A GLIMPSE
Images are powerful. They stir up feelings and emotions and make you think about stuff. As you look at the image, let your mind, eyes and heart be engaged in conversation about life and faith and you may get a glimpse of God. Be engaged, start the conversation.

[ May 25, 2010; ] Have you ever wondered if God really exists? And if he did, how would you know?
Excellent questions! If that’s ever crossed your mind, we’ve got someone you can ask that question to! In fact, you can sit in on a live online web conversation along with tons of others your age across the world with [...]
[ May 21, 2010; ] A big part of the global food and water crisis is this un-natural desire the 21st Century human population has for more, more, more.
Our current generations are defined by consumerism. Taking in as much as we can. Piling up stuff, buying the better upgraded version new stuff (like cell phones, computers and .mp3 players) [...]
“By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.” (Hebrews 11:7)
I’m not surprised, I guess, that some people have a hard time believing that the biblical account of Noah and the ark is factually and literally true. Imagine how hard it must have been to believe before it happened!
Imagine how hard it would have been for him to accept the idea of a worldwide flood, of an enormous shipload of animals adrift, of all the destruction and death. His act of faith in building that vessel seems far greater than mine in believing it happened.
The words “by faith” show up three times in this verse. Noah’s belief showed up in what he did, in how he obeyed. Noah’s faith saved his family — and revealed the faithlessness of everyone else who chose instead to do what was right in their own eyes.
Think: What hard thing is God asking you to trust Him and do even though you can’t yet see how it will work out?
Pray: Ask God to help you to have the kind of faith Noah had, the kind that obeys even if you don’t understand all the hows and why’s.
Do: Choose some specific command of God to you from His Word to obey in your life today, maybe something you’ve been putting off.
