[7] Turbulent, out of control lives

Noah had no sail or rudder, I wonder how he felt – powerless, not in control?
Our lives are sometimes swept along by strong currents and storms and it seems to be totally out of our control!
How strange to build a huge boat, without any form of propulsion, no sails, no oars, no engine, and even more strange, no way of steering it – no rudder!…

[10] It’s so hard to wait for stuff!

Can you imagine being confined to a boat full of noisy, smelly animals for over twelve months, then finally the door is opened, and you look down at the dry ground.
But the Lord says nothing, nothing at all!
Not wait, but nothing!
Noah knows in his heart that it would be wrong to act now.
Perhaps you are in the situation that seems to be saying ‘OK’, but in your heart you’ve got a restraint…

Why did the Ark ground on Mt Ararat?

Why Mt Ararat, why not a mountain much closer to the heart of a Jew and a mountain much closer to Israel?
It is generally recognised that Moses is the writer of Genesis.
So why did Moses put Mt Ararat as the place where the Ark became grounded – unless it was really true?…
