A True Beginning – Wait Till Your Father Gets You Home (Genesis 8:1-22)

Genesis 8:1-22 - Wait Till Your Father Gets You Home


The flood is over, but Noah spends week after week waiting for the Lord to speak and tell him to leave the ark.


Genesis 8:1-22     Leviticus 23:5     Psalm 27:14     Psalm 37:9     Psalm 139:17-18     Isaiah 64:4     Romans 8:22


The other lovely thing about this verse is how God is pictured enjoying the aroma of the sacrifice. So often I think of God hearing us or seeing us. Those are things we can do from far away. But smelling requires nearness. God the Father, of course, is Spirit, but here He paints Himself as being close enough to breathe in the perfume of Noah’s offering. And it wasn’t the meat God loved to smell, but the hearts of His children, offering true and valuable praise to Him.
