Getting nearer to God in troubled times
We are living in perplexing, sinful, wicked and ungodly times. Things are not getting better in this sinful world. This reminds us of the days of Noah, when the sins of ungodly men brought regret and disappointment to God. Only Noah and his family found favor with God. Yes, our times are troubling. We need to draw closer to our God.
5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
