Then the Lord Said to...
by Shelley Hitz
The LORD then said to Noah, "Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation. (NIV)
Then the LORD said to Noah, "Enter the ark, you and all your household, for you alone I have seen to be righteous before Me in this time. (NASB)
AND THE Lord said to Noah, Come with all your household into the ark, for I have seen you to be righteous (upright and in right standing) before Me in this generation. (AMP)
Will God say this to me? Will He say it to you?
Then the Lord said to _________________ (fill in your name)...you alone I have seen to be righteous before me in this time, I have found you righteous in this generation.
I don't know about you, but I want to be found righteous by God...
...even in a culture that encourages me to be anything but righteous. I've fallen for the temptations, been in the pit before, and know what it feels like to be found unrighteous by God. Thankfully, Jesus rescued me from my unrighteousness. And now I want to be found righteous by Him. It is no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me (Gal 2:20).
Lord, please empower me and enable me to be found righteous (upright and in right standing) before you in this generation. So be it!
