Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief.
Study the life of faithful Noah and you will know what he would say if he could come and counsel you today: “Whenever you hear God’s truth,” he would say, “you will go either in the direction you are moved, or you will just wait.
“If you wait, you will find that the next time you hear the truth, it will not move you quite as much. The next time, it will move you less—and the time will come when that truth will not move you at all!”
We need that message in our generation, for there is a distressing kind of “frozen” unbelief all around us. Men and women are paying little heed to any of God’s warning signals.
As a farm boy, I learned the lesson of little chicks—an easy prey for hawks overhead. The mother hen heard the high pitched cry of the soaring hawk and gave her own special “cluck cluck” of warning. Her chicks scampered to her side and soon she had them all tucked safely under her feathers.
Thank God, there is a true faith that is not ashamed to move in the direction of the Ark of safety!
Lord, I pray that today I will be especially alert to God’s truth and that I will take any appropriate action that is impressed upon my spirit.
