Obedience is a choice. You will either obey God or you will not. God is searching for someone who’s willing to walk with him. God uses people who are willing to be use by Him. Noah was a drunk but the bible tells me that Noah found grace in God eyes. God told Noah that he was going to destroy the world by water and he needed him to build an ark.
Noah built the Ark like God commended him to do. In order to obey God you have to first have faith in him. Having faith in God will open up so many opportunities for you. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Noah built in ark for 120 years before he saw rain. When we begin to walk in obedience, that’s when the blessing of God begin to flow. It’s one thing to just hear the word of God or to read it, but it’s something else for us to start obeying it. That shows us faith plus works equals a blessing .
