“Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight, and the earth was filled with wickedness. God saw how corrupt the earth was, for every creature had corrupted its way on the earth. Then God said to Noah, “I have decided to put an end to every creature, for the earth is filled with wickedness because of them; therefore I am going to destroy them along with the earth. But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark with your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives.” (Genesis 6:11-13, 18, CSB)
I have decided to put an end to every creature …But I will establish my covenant with you. When everything around you is crumbling, don’t ever forget that God is still watching and smiling at your magnificent marriage. He hears your prayers and rejoices in your commitment to Him. He watches as you share your food with the poor and speak life into the lost.
And while you are shining your light in the midst of a dark and darkening world, God is homing in on your hearts and celebrating your faith. Your heart grieves at the devolution of your community, as does God. And, despite all your efforts and all your prayers, the tide around you isn’t turning for the better.
In moments like these, God is pleased and poised to rescue you from the quagmire of chaos that surrounds you like sinking sand. Even though you see no way, God in His infinite supernatural character has already devised a way and planned out every detail of your path into the hope and help of His hand.
It is at the moment we least expect it that God steps in. His favor surrounds and scoops us up. There, in the midst of the darkness, God shines like a stadium light. With the brightness of His presence and the peace that passes all understanding, God will lead us into the future that is “above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us.” (Ephesians 3:20, CSB)
God’s Spirit will make a way. It’s already on the way. He’s already dreamed it up, ordered the resources, briefed the angelic team, set the deployment locations, and established the date for the whole operation. God will honor your stand as a couple at any moment!
