Genesis 6:13, 14 (NKJV)}
. Noah lived in the time when there was no rain yet God told him to build an ark. Of course God revealed his pan too, but can you imagine what the wicked must thought of Noah building an ark? They might have sneered or laughed at him, calling him a crazy old preacher, but Noah obeyed God and he and his whole house was saved, including every pairs of animals while the rest of the world drowned in the flood.
God changed Abram (meaning father) to Abraham (Father of many nations) when he didn't have heir or son to call his own. Can you imagine what people thought when he went around calling himself the father of many nations?
When God speaks to us, he may ask us to do something that doesn't make sense in the natural and look foolish to the rest of the world. One of my favorite passages in the Bible is found in the book of Jeremiah. Jerusalem was under siege yet God spoke to Jeremiah and told him to purchase a deed from his cousin. "and I gave the evidence of the purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, the son of Maaseiah, in the sight of Hanameel mine uncle’s son, and in the presence of the witnesses that subscribed the book of the purchase, before all the Jews that sat in the court of the prison." Interesting enough the word evidence is also found in Hebrews 11, It says, "Now Faith is the substance of things hope for and the EVIDENCE of things not seen,
This became my verse as God spoke to me and said, "Do not wait until everything is good for you to publish In Pursuit of a Cowboy. Your story is not only your seed, but your deed. " You see, I wanted to wait until I was in Montana, but God wanted me to act in Faith that would go there and He wanted me to use my story as a deed in bad times. This also means, I must find another editor because this story is special and close to my heart and I didn't want to share it with an editor who accepts secular ms submissions (one authors writes about spells and magic). I have already chosen who I want to edit and I can not wait to submit it to her.
Don' be surprise if God speaks and ask you to do something that doesn't make sense. Just look at the heroes of faith. All they needed was faith because without it, you can't please God. Don't worry what people think. Just have faith.
