Genesis Chapter Eight Verses 15-19

Then, Noah remembered God.

Although Genesis 8 is primarily about God remembering Noah, it also contains wonderful truth about how Noah remembered God.

In Verse 15-17 God tells him it was time to leave the ark. Taking the family and all of the animals off the boat and get ready to repopulate the earth.

“So Noah came out, together with his sons and his wife and his sons’ wives. All the animals and all the creatures that move along the ground and all the birds—everything that moves on the earth—came out of the ark, one kind after another” (Genesis 8:18-19). 

I do not think we appreciate how much courage it took for Noah to leave the ark. 

As I have already pointed out, the ark had been crowded, cramped, and no doubt somewhat smelly. But it has been home, and it was safe. Now they were leaving the known for the unknown. The world they had known and left when they got on the ark was gone forever. 

It might have been easier to stay in the ark, uncomfortable as it must have been. It took great courage for Noah to step out of the ark into a brand-new world. 

Sometimes, often times, God calls us to do things that are hard and may even seem impossible. We are called to leave the known for the unknown, and we have to leave the ark that has taken us this far and step out on our own. 

Some of us are stuck because we know it’s time to move forward but we are afraid to take the first step. God blessed Noah who knew when to get on the big boat and he also knew when to get off! Praise God!

About the Podcast

My Bible Study
Verse by Verse Through The Bible
This has been a project I have been contemplating for a long time.

Join me in walking through the Bible on our personal Bible study - one verse at at time. There is no "preaching" here. Just simple scripture reading with brief explanations and examples of what the scripture mean.

I was inspired to do this project based upon the program "Through The Bible" with Dr. Jay Veron McGee (who is passed on to be with the Lord for several years now). When I first started to study the Bible, his radio program helped me immensely. It took Dr. McGee 5 years to do a complete Bible Study.

I do not know how long it will take us. But you can start listening at anytime. As I continue to add more episodes, you can join us at the most recent program or start at the beginning. Each episode is labeled as to the scriptures we are going to discuss.

I am so blessed you are here and I pray you will get a huge blessing as we join together in "MY BIBLE STUDY!"

You can also watch the corresponding YouTube videos that go with this Bible Study. I record them on FaceBook Live and load them to YouTube and the audio versions go here.
