An Intimate Relationship & Pecan Praline Honey Butter Waffles

Genesis 6:6 (erv)

The Lord was sorry that he had made people on the earth. It made him very sad in his heart.


Isn’t this such a refreshing way to look at God? He’s so emotional. The Creator of the universe, the One who knows all, rules over all, and can have/be/do anything He wants is heartbroken… over us.

If that’s not a testament of His love, I don’t know what is. There are so many other emotions that God could have felt; anger, resentment, frustration. But none of those were mentioned – only sadness.

Genesis 6 also begins telling the story of Noah and the ark. When God chose to spare Noah’s life, He gave him all the plans to build the ark. Everything that he needed, God provided for Him. Even when God’s upset, He continues to provide for us. He didn’t need to save humans, after all, He’d just been heartbroken by us. He chose to save us. Genesis 6:9 says that “He walked faithfully with God (NIRV).”

What we can take and learn from this is that having constant fellowship with the Lord is key. It allows us to hear from Him, to understand His plans for us, and to take an active role in those plans. God allows Noah in to see exactly what’s going on. I think that so often, when we think of having an intimate relationship with God, we imagine Him knowing us deeply, which He certainly does. But I often forget that it also means knowing God deeply, and getting to bear witness to how strong His emotions are for us.


Do you feel that God knows you intimately? Do you think that you know Him intimately?


For an intimate relationship with the Lord.
