“The Lord wiped out every living thing on earth: man and cattle, the creeping things and the birds of the air; all were wiped out from the earth. Only Noah and those with him in the ark were left.” — Genesis 7:23
The flood lasted for one year and ten days and destroyed everything but Noah, his family, and a few survivors from each species of animals. All creation groaned and was in agony because of our sins (Rm 8:22).
Prayer: Father, may I recognize sin as the first and greatest evil on earth and in my life.
Promise: “Noah did just as the Lord had commanded him.” —7:5
