Scripture Union Daily Guide 25 April 2022 MESSAGE
Here we get the information of how the earth was repopulated after the flood. Noah’s sons reproduced and grew into big families, clans and nations that moved out to all parts of the earth. Right from the beginning, God required mankind to “increase ? and fill the earth” (see Genesis 1:28) but this requirement was continuously hampered by man’s sin and disobedience leading to destruction of human life at each given phase.
But because the spread of nations over the face of the earth was central to God’s mission, He preserved a remnant and continued the spread, regardless of man’s behaviour or cooperation. Today’s passage is a reminder that God’s mission will be fulfilled despite man’s rebellion against Him and His word. It is better for us to obey and cooperate with God rather than stand in opposition to His plans and mission.
Those who obey and cooperate will find blessing, salvation and favour from Him. Those who disobey will face pain and destruction.
Meditation: Reflect on Acts 17:26‐27. And So? Are you cooperating with God in fulfilling His mission on earth? Pray for grace to always do this.
