Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. — Genesis 6:14
I am always fascinated by people that are prepared. For example, it amazes me how some people are meal preppers. They plan their meals out weeks at a time knowing exactly what ingredients they will need day to day. They plan their meals in a specific order, allowing them to reuse items and eliminate as much waste as possible.
Others plan things out like their vacations step by step. They know exactly where they will be and at what time each day. They prepare the order of events so that they are in the right place at the right time. The preparation that goes into those types of things is amazing.
While we can prepare for many things in life, there are a lot of things that we cannot prepare for. I think about Noah and his family in the story of the Ark. They had never worried about rain before. No doubt there were many who thought Noah was crazy and made fun of him. Noah was simply following God. He didn’t know what he needed the day the rain started, but he knew that whatever he needed, it started and ended with God.
