Genesis 6:17-18 (NLT)
“Look! I am about to cover the earth with a flood that will destroy every living thing that breathes. Everything on earth will die. But I will confirm my covenant with you. So enter the boat—you and your wife and your sons and their wives.
He is cutting off and drowning sins, idols, distractions as well as other things that will stop you going forward.
He is literally flooding away all things that hold you back or waste your time; things of religion and habit.
But first of all you must enter your boat. This is the time for you to enter into a secluded place while God gets rid of some things that have attached themselves to you.
God is calling you to a higher place where you can start a fresh. He is taking care of the things of old. You might look back over your life and have regrets that have set you back but the time has come to get on the boat.
Here you will find peace and rest for your soul as well as the nourishment to believe for a new beginning.
When you open up your eyes you will find yourself rested on your mountaintop overlooking a new future with green fertile pastures of promise awaiting you.
