“And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.” Luke 4:21
The Bible must be more than just a manual that teaches us about God and how to be like Jesus. The scriptures must be more than something we read and obey. They must be fulfilled in our life. When you find yourself unconsciously living out the word of God; when you find your reactions being righteous; when you can’t help but to respond to people in love, then you can know the scriptures are something more than what you read, but something that is being fulfilled in your life.
“And God spake unto Noah, saying, 16Go forth of the ark, thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons’ wives with thee.” Genesis 8:15-16
I am sure that Noah was planning on leaving the ark after things dried up. I don’t know if he was waiting for God to tell him when to leave or not. However, the day came when God told him to go forth from the ark. We may not know if Noah was waiting to hear from God before he left the ark, but one thing we can be sure of. When God told him to go, it was the perfect time. Whenever God tells us to do something, it is the most absolute perfect time to do it.
