The Genesis Story: Part 26- Age is NOT a Factor!


Bible Reading: Genesis 7

Memory Verse: Genesis 7: 6

And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.

Good morning ladies and gentlemen! How are you all doing? How was your night? I hope you had a great one. I thank God for your life this morning. The mere fact that you woke up this morning means that God has a special agenda for you to achieve. Have you found it yet? Are you in the process of achieving it? Or you are just living your life as though someone was flipping empty pages? The main question is here is what kind of life do you want to live? Once you have chosen Christ, it is important for you to carry out what He has destined for you to do. So what are you waiting for? Pray to God to reveal what this is and act upon it.

Today’s message is Part 26 of The Genesis Story and we are going to focus on being used by God. This journey gets very interesting as we each day. Though each day a new topic is brought up and discussed, there is a correlation between all of the things that are been discussed; God’s love for us. I hope that each and every single one of you realise, know and feel this love that God has for His children. Through this readings, it is my prayer that the revealing of God love would fill the voids you have in your hearts and heal the wounds in your heart. I pray that God’s love would also reassure you and comfort you. This because no matter how big you are or how ok you feel, you need love. What better love can you experience than God’s love.

Today, we are going to be taking a closer look at Genesis 7: 6. From this verse, the main highlight is the age of Noah when God chose Him. Even though God was exercising His wrath upon the earth, God called Noah at the same time. Do you not think that God could have protected Noah and His family from the floods without making Noah build the ark? Oh yes He could have. This is God we are talking about. He holds power in both heaven and the earth. He could have protected Noah and His family without the ark. God chose Noah to build the ark to show not only the world He was about to destroy of how great He was but also the many generations to come. 

God’s glory was shown through the harmonious living of amongst all those animals in the ark and amongst humans and animals. A lot of people take this for granted, but it is a very important thing. Imagine what would have happened if there was no harmony in the ark? Would do you think might have happened? The other important thing was how God used the ark as the tool to protect them. How Noah had to work hard and tirelessly to bring out God’s Word. The most important is of how God called each specie in pairs. He knew the end already. He knew that He needed a way to create a “new earth.” 

Let’s go on to the main focus of today’s message. From the memory verse, we see that God can call anyone at any point of their lives. Not matter your age or your status in life; you are not exempted from being called by God. He calls you based on a certain character trait or skill that He has honed in you for a while. A lot of people use age as an excuse to do what they have been called to do. This is just an excuse to leave your comfort zone and do what God wants you to do.

Throughout the Bible, we see people of different ages being called by God. Some were very young, for example the Prophet Samuel and some were old, for example Moses. What all of these people did was that they followed through with what God had told them and He helped them through it. They carried out God’s instruction despite the fear they felt or the uncertainty they felt. When God calls you, He would help you through it. He has given you all the tools you need to carry out that specific task. 

The time at which God calls you is the best time for you. He knows everything that has happened, is happening and about to happen. If God chooses you at the age of 20 or 80, that is the best time for you. But in doing this, He would never let you fall behind your peers. He is always on time, which makes you on time. All you got to do is trust Him. So is age a factor?

When we obey God’s instructions, He in turn blesses us. This blessing is more than we can think or fathom. The very little effort you put in serving God, He would return it. This is due to the great love He has for us- His children. When you try to think about it, you would not be able to understand. This God that you and I serve is just too good and words cannot describe it.

If this your first time reading Sammie’s Daily Dose and from reading this message, you would like to join the coolest family in the world, kindly take a few minutes to repeat this prayer.

Dear Lord,

I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He came on to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fill me. Lord, I ask that He cleanses me off my sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you Lord. Amen.

If you repeated this prayer with all the sincerity of your heart, congratulations!! You are now a part of God’s family.  Welcome to the greatest family ever. Heaven is jubilating on your arrival. Your fellow brothers and sisters are also excited to have you on board. You can now be exempted from the wrath of the enemy and of God. Not only do you experience this, but your whole family as well. Wow! Isn’t the God you serve so cool? He is. Not only do you enjoy this, but you enjoy other blessings God has in store for His children. 

Being a child of God is a wonderful thing. The road might not always be easy but God is with you each and every step of the way. Guiding you, helping you and encouraging up. You will never regret this decision; I can assure you of that. Two things I would recommend for you to do are;

  1. Get yourself a Bible (in a version you understand) and meditate on it day and night. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that when you meditate on the Word day and night, you will be prosperous and successful.

  2. Find a Bible- believing church to attend and fellowship with other Christians. This would help you grow spiritually.

I am excited that you made this decision. Welcome! If you would like some help or more understanding into anything, you can leave a message (adding your email address) and I would be willing and happy to help you out. Hallelujah!

To end this message, I would like to encourage you keep on keeping on in Christ. It is not an easy task but it is a very rewarding one. A life without Christ is no life at all. I urge you to stop living a grey life and choose God every single day of your life. Stay blessed!

  • Have a wonderful day and let God inspire you!
