Build Your Boat

I told Noah to build a boat because I knew the flood was coming. Despite ridicule from every side, he listened and his life was spared. Just as I told Noah, I am telling you – storms, flood waters and tossing waves are all a part of this life. If you’re going to stay afloat, you must build a boat and anchor it to Me. The only way to do that is through pursuing Me.

I am the Master Builder. 

I provide your blueprint in the Word. 

Your tools are the scriptures, and you use them by applying them to your daily life. 

Your supplies come from building relationship with Me, for I supply all your needs and hold you together. Your anchor comes from your faith in Me. It becomes fixed through your complete trust. Not everyone will understand. Build anyway. It won’t make sense until the rain comes. And when it does, you can say, “Let it pour!” Because the floods won’t phase you, the waves won’t sway you, and the winds won’t toss you about, all because you listened, built your boat and anchored yourself in Me.


Father, thank-you for reminding me that I build a boat by pursuing relationship with you. Show me where I am in the process, and teach me how to live out the scriptures so I can build a sturdy boat. Help me to trust You so my anchor keeps me secure. Thank-you for making a way for me to be safe even among the most torrential of storms!  In Jesus name, amen.

Genesis 6:14 (GNT)

Build a boat for yourself out of good timber; make rooms in it and cover it with tar inside and out.

Hebrews 6:18-19 (NLT)

So God has given both his promise and his oath. These two things are unchangeable because it is impossible for God to lie. Therefore, we who have fled to him for refuge can have great confidence as we hold to the hope that lies before us. This hope is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. It leads us through the curtain into God’s inner sanctuary.
