Genesis 6:14 Make for yourself an ark of gopher wood; make rooms in the ark and coat it with pitch inside and out.

God told Noah to build an ark to withstand a flood when rain didn’t even exist. Some scholars say he was building the ark for over 100 years. Can you imagine the years of satanic thoughts that entered his mind?
-You look dumb right now.
-What are you doing?
-This is a waste of time.

Not only did he have to resist satanic attacks in his mind, but he had to close his ears to naysayers around him.
-How’s that ark coming Noah? (sarcastically speaking)
-He’s lost his mind.
-How can you feed your family by doing this?

Year after year, Noah had to resist the urge to quit, and continue to do what God told him to do. At the end of the day, Noah had the last laugh by saving himself, his family, and all the animals on the earth.

What “out of the box” thing has God told you to do? Have satanic thoughts or the negative words of people prevented you from following through with His instructions? If so, take a lesson from Noah and push all that aside and do what God said.

Regardless how long it takes and no matter how ridiculous it makes us look, God will ensure that He gets the glory and He will allow the naysayers the privilege of seeing the promise manifesting in our lives.
