Day 1: The First Shaky Steps
Noah Walked with God. Genesis 6:9
With tiny fingers curled around strong, fatherly hands, a child first learns to walk. Shaky steps and wobbly knees find strength in a quick upward glance at a beaming father. Any forward movement is met with uproarious applause.
Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God. Genesis 6:9
Certainly Noah's first steps of faith were fraught with shakes and wobbles. Like a young child strengthened by the grip of his father's steadying hands, Noah walked with God and was supported by his heavenly Father's strong grasp. Though your first steps in Christ are marked by shakes and wobbles, you can keep walking, confident in God's care. You are not holding onto him; rather, he is the One holing you firmly in his grasp. The strength and courage you will need to walk by faith throughout your lifetime come from your heavenly Father.
