Grace In The Eyes Of The Lord

Genesis 6:8 “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.”

For those who study the Bible, there is what is called the Law of First Mention, which means that the first time an important word is mentioned in the Bible, it will give you a key to understanding the meaning of the word. The word “grace” was first mentioned in this verse; it came with the name of Noah. The Name of Noah means “rest”. So rest and grace are connected. This tells us that when we rest in the Lord – we don’t struggle or try to make ourselves right with God, but we trust in what Jesus has done to make us right with God, we trust in His wisdom to get us through trials and storms, we trust His power is at work in us changing us – then we allow His grace to accomplish what we could never do on our own. Ask the Holy Spirit to lead you to His rest so that His glory is what manifests in the different areas of your life. The work Jesus accomplished for you is complete so you can rest in it! Resting in Jesus leads you to His favor so that things will work out for you! “Abba, in the areas I am struggling in, I ask Your Holy Spirit to lead me to Your rest. I want Your grace to do what I cannot do, I want my life to reflect Your goodness because Jesus already paid the price for my life. In Jesus’ Name I pray, amen.”
