Standing Out From the Crowd


Genesis 6:7-10

An old song I remember from childhood went:  "Noah found grace in the eye of the Lord and He left him high and dry!"

Never being much a fan of water... the lyrics "high and dry" drew me into His grace.  I knew I didn't want to get wet!

"Pick me, Lord.  Pick me!" was my heart's cry.  I wanted to stand out from the crowd like Noah and be rescued from the world flood.

As I grew up I discovered that standing out from the crowd came at a price.  I didn't like standing out from the crowd that much anymore.  My prayers became more like:  "Lord, could you just make me like everybody else?"  "Could you do something about this puny bicep, Lord?"  "Could you shrink my nose a bit?"  Of course that didn't happen.

The good news is that there came a day when I wanted to stand out again.   A day when I longed to stand out from the crowd... standing in the fields of His grace!  But at 16 the questions became:  "What will make me stand out as worthy of God's grace or attention?  What will make the Lord "pick" me?"

Genesis 6:8 says:  "...Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord." (6:8)  How did he do it?   read more
