DO WHAT GOD HAS TOLD YOU (2)                           Hebrews 11:4-7

By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, took heed and constructed an ark for the saving of his household; by this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness which comes by faith. (v7)

Noah built the ark because God commanded it. It’s what he was called to in life. Sawing planks and hammering nails for him as an act of obedience. And when everything was said and done, it was the longest act of obedience in Scripture. From start to finish, Noah’s one act of obedience took 43,800 days. And with each daily act of obedience, he glorified God. No matter what tool you use in your trade – a hammer, a keyboard, a mop, a football, a spreadsheet, a microphone, an espresso machine using it is an act of obedience. It’s the mechanism where by you worship God. It’s the way you do what you’re supposed to do. The Bible says, “Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” (Colossians 3:17 NIV) putting yourself down and thinking what you do is not important. Remember the old proverb, “For want of a nail.” It goes like this “For want of a nail the shoe was lost. “For want of a shoe the horse was lost. For want of a horse the rider was lost. For want of a rider the message was lost. For want of a message the battle was lost. For want of a battle the kingdom was lost. And all for the want of a horseshoe  nail.” In God’s eyes, small acts of obedience are big things. When you joyfully do little things like they are big things, then God will do big things like they are little things, That’s how His kingdom advances, So the word for you today is “Do what God has told you. (TWFT)
