He named him Noah, for he was to change the cursed situation into a blessed situation.

Today was a red letter day at the church, the wind of spirit blew away all the dense, dull and damp situations in our life.

During the sermon Pastor made one point which came jumping out of the bible and held me, I could not tweet with a 140 character restriction which might even suppress the essence and the weight that scripture had, so here it is.

Noah’s Father Lamech was 182 year old when he gave birth to Noah and bible records it in Gen 5: 28-29

28 When Lamech had lived 182 years, he had a son. 29 He named him Noah[a] and said, “He will comfort us in the labor and painful toil of our hands caused by the ground the Lord has cursed.”

Lamech was much burdened and bruised and all his endeavor were fruitless adding to the woes was the pain, toil and labor the effort of which seemed vain, due to the cursed land.

We go through a similar situation in our life too and the questions that arises are like, why lord I have this inherited disease?, this inherited poverty? this inherited rejection by our own people? why our parents never saw blessing but only labor and manual labor? why no comfort in their life but struggles though they were sincerely serving you, however there came a time in the life of Lamech when Noah the son was born.

And Noah was a righteous man, who feared God and walked with Him, and because of Noah, God repented and made a covenant that he will never destroy the earth with flood, and thereafter the land which was cursed became blessed.

In our life when we have the circle of curse making our life barren and fruitless, there will be a birthing of a something or someone who will be the harbinger of good tidings who  shall eventually break all pain, toils and the vicious circle of sin and curse and make our life a blessing.

Remember even if you dont have such birthing, Jesus came to break that cycle of curse and with his blood he sealed the covenant never to make our life barren or cursed.
