BY RICK WARREN — DECEMBER 4, 2019
Noah was an amazing man of faith. God told him to build an ark because there would be a flood. It must have been difficult to bear ridicule for building a boat in the middle of the desert, with no idea how God was going to get water to it. It took Noah 120 years to build the ark. That’s a long time to wait! It’s a long time to trust, especially when everyone thinks you’re crazy.
But Noah persevered. He was persistent, and he stayed faithful to the task God had given him.
Galatians 6:9 says, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” (NIV).
Don’t give up! Be persistent in your purpose. Become a faithful person so God can use you to do what seems impossible to everyone else.
