Then Noah built an altar to the
LORD and, taking some of all the
clean animals and clean birds, he
sacrificed burnt offerings on it.—Genesis 8:20 NIV
The first thing Noah did after leaving the ark was
to build an altar and offer sacrifices to praise God.
Consider how he must have felt stepping off the ark
onto steady ground. Reflect on times in your life when
you needed to act on faith alone.
Heavenly Father, I yearn to be as obedient to Your call as
Noah was—to boldly follow Your instructions and always
put You first.
