“Noah did everything just as God commanded him.” Genesis 6:22

 

 

MOUNTAIN TOP EXPERIENCES

 

 “Life is a series of valley and mountaintop experiences.  Through them all, God is right there with you.

 

 Think of Noah. Today’s Scripture reads that Noah obeyed God and did all that was commanded of him.  He and his family escaped the flood and were given the mandate to repopulate the earth.

 

 But if you read Genesis 9:20-27, you find Noah getting drunk on his wine and passing out naked in his tent.  After being on the spiritual mountaintop, Noah let down his guard and ended up in the spiritual basement.  Through his drunken experience Noah’s son Ham also sinned by dishonoring his father and Noah ends up cursing Ham’s son and the rippling effect continued.

 

 Remember that you will not always stay up on the mountaintop. Keep your guard up not to sin wherever you are.  Keep yourself humble and tender before God and depend upon Him always.  “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in ALL your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.’ DF
