Your Walk With God {Genesis 6}

In today's Vlog I talk about your walk with God and what that means, looking at godly men of faith in the Old Testament whose example we can follow.  #Biblestudy #Genesis #WomensBibleStudy #GoodMorningGirls

Good Morning Girls!

We are up to Genesis 6 today!

You will find all of today’s devotional content in the video below.

We are looking at Noah, his walk with God and your walk with God.

(if you cannot see the video – click here to view the video)

Some of the verses referenced in the video:

Genesis 6:9

Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.

*****

Genesis 5:24

Enoch walked faithfully with God; then he was no more, because God took him away.

*****

Hebrews 11:1-7

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

2 This is what the ancients were commended for.

3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

4 By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead.

5 By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death: “He could not be found, because God had taken him away.” For before he was taken, he was commended as one who pleased God.

6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

7 By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith.

*****

Matthew 24:36-39

36 “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; 39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

  1. I think my greatest hindrance in my walk with God is distraction. I’m rather type A and I often get into my head a list of all the things I want to do in a given day and sometimes I get so focused on all those things that I’m busy rushing around and have a hard time slowing down, being quiet, and listening to God. Things have been a bit better lately in that for the past few months I’ve been having my quiet time with God first thing in the morning, before the kids are up and the rush of the day begins. And I’m really relishing that quiet time.

  2. No blog post for me to link up this week but I had to say how much I love your hair and the splash of blue! haha!
    Ok… one spiritual thing!… Man was made in God’s image/likeness…. I had always assumed this was physical and couldn’t wrap my head around it. This week I realized it was a spiritual thing.

    “That God made him in his own likeness, righteous and holy, and therefore undoubtedly happy; man’s nature resembled the divine nature more than that of any of the creatures of this lower world.” – John Wesley

    Just a little tidbit but I love when God helps me sort through confusion like that!

  3. Fantastic video Courtney, and really really challenging! D.L Moody had the most amazing and beautiful, heart response to that man didn’t he!

    I so wish I could be that person of faith and righteous walking too, and by God’s grace he’ll help me to change from where I am now. I fear that my greatest hindrance in my walk with God is my apathy (i.e not taking the reality of judgement day seriously enough, both for myself (i.e living my life with more constant joy and gratitude and obedience to my Saviour who have all for me) and also for others who don’t know of what’s coming).

    And secondly I fear my walk with God is also so hindered by my cowardliness to tell others about the gospel and what I know by faith to be true. Lately I feel like I’ve been much slower to open my mouth or to speak or share of the hope I have.

    Thank you again for all your encouragement, I so appreciate every video and blog post! Xx

    1. Nicole, I think you put into words where I am right now, too! I can’t seem to wrap my head around the reality His coming, beyond the words on the page. I believe it, but then I let … everything … come before that Truth. Praying for you and I to step out of our apathy.

  4. I love the video, and i for sure love the questions you add on the blog. I hope the lady’s will start to talk after theese questions.

    As i say in Dutch: Blijf dichtbij je Maker. ( Stay close to the one who Create you)

  5. Hello, this is the first time I have done your Bible study. I love it. I am a mother of 2 and time is a hot commodity for me. I think that seems to be my biggest hindrance. I always feel rushed and pressed for time. I am working on organizing my time better but it seems to be two steps forward and one back. After multiple miscarriages I was so tired of being tested. My strength, both mentally and physically, was low and my anger was building. I wish I was strong enough to have risen to God’s challenge for me, but I fell flat {at least at first}. Since then, I think I’ve been better with trusting God. I am doing everything I can to teach my children to listen and talk with God. I hope to continue trusting God more and to get better about making time for Him.

  6. Genesis Chapter 6: 14 – 16. It’s amazing all of the hard work Noah was instructed by God to do in building the Ark. The dimensions for the ark given in these verses show what a huge vessel the ark really was – not like the tiny little ark we were shown pictures of and told about in Sunday school class.

    Noah would have been an intelligent skillful man.

    I love Courtney that you draw parallels with Enoch and Noah, I’ve never heard anyone say that before. Both of them walked with God by faith, both righteous men – though Enoch was translated – taken up into heaven. Noah was a preacher of righteousness for 120 years and through all of his hard work would have been rewarded and blessed abundantly.

    This is speaking to me that when we keep focused on Him and walk faithfully in close fellowship with God we also will be blessed abundantly and rewarded by our Heavenly Father.

  7. Verse 6 The Lord regretted that He had made man on earth, and He was grieved in His heart. This verse breaks my heart to think that our creator was grieved in His heart that He created man. especially when I read how when God created man He said that was very good. Sin had and unfortunately has still today, polluted the greatness of God’s creation. I pray that my actions do not cause my creator to grieve His heart.

  8. The greatest hindrance for me is myself! I allow other things to distract me, things that take me away from who is most important in my life and deserves first place.
    Noah did hard things even though he was afraid! He was obedient and God blessed his obedience. I have to do hard things by being obedient and taking one small step at a time.

  9. I procrastinate, I get distracted a lot. I need to learn to center myself. Stay focus. Turn off the television. I have quiet time before the grandbabies get home. Being close to God is important to me. I need to understand what I am reading.

  10. Amen! Loved your video! Praying for you as you continue to be a source of encouragement and faithful to the calling God has placed on your life Courtney!

    Walking in His Grace,
    Laurie

  11. Loved the video. This is my first bible study ever & I am loving it. I would have answered your question before that it was I have trouble following through with things, but ever since I started the bible study, I can not get enough, I had one set back were I missed one day of reading & it was the 2nd day & I felt so horrible as I had made a promise to myself & God that I was going to follow through with this.Well this bothered me so bad that I could not take it any more & just had to catch up & read two chapters in one day so I was caught up. I love the way you have taught us to do the bible study by writing it down after reading it as I have trouble remembering what I read & this has been the best advise I have ever been given & I have gotten so much more out of what I have read so far. Thank You So Much. God Bless You.

  12. I don’t seem to have a problem following along with you, but my daughter and her friends do. On Sunday I have to tell them what we will be reading for the week. They seem to feel that it is confusing, i.e. you are talking about Noah in Genesis and then all of a sudden you are talking about Matthew and that threw them off because he isn’t in Genesis and they were trying to find him. My sister would like to follow along and I am wondering if she will have a problem or if it will be confusing to her as well.

  13. So, weird coincidence. My husband and I recently watched the movie on Netflix called Left Behind with Kurk Cameron! The Matthew scripture is so this movie!! Scary yet leaves you feeling anxious to get busy and spread the word!!

  14. At first it used to be a lack of commitment that hindered me, but of late I’ve found myself really short of time to delve into my bible. I’m a bit of a perfectionist so if I don’t get the time o read my assigned reading for that day then I get discouraged. I’m working on just starting it anyway, snd seeing what God says to me in short periods of time. God is definitely teaching me patience in reading Genesis as the history parts can get a little tedious, but overall I am really enjoying it, and coming to realize just the kind of life that God wanted s to live and the kind of world he made for us. I also find how much free choice he gave us to be interesting.
