“But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” (Genesis 6:8 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible.) My husband has several metal detectors. He is a Civil War buff and goes with permission on property looking for finds or treasures. He’s found all kinds of items buried deep in the ground; old metal car, gold ring, coins, etc. The detector helped him locate these items. I don’t metal detect but I look for finds myself. Right now I’m looking for a khaki skirt (on sale of course). Noah landed the best find in the world when he “found grace in the eyes of the Lord.” God looked down on earth and saw a mess. In fact, He repented that He ever made man in verses 6-7. The word “but” changes the whole scene for God saw Noah and Noah found grace in the Lord’s eyes. He caught the attention of the Lord because he served the God of grace. Noah is not the only one in the elite club of grace finders, for I found grace also. I don’t deserve His grace but I’m so glad He had mercy on me.
Prayer: Dear Lord, this morning I want to say a great big THANK YOU for giving me grace. It is definitely your unmerited favor. It was a great big find for me when I found Your grace and mercy extended to me.
