Noah used the abilities God gave him to build the ark. I just imagine he was a very skilled carpenter to have been able to build an ark that was 450 feet long (one and half football fields long), 75 feet wide (the width of one and a half football fields), and 45 feet high (the height of a four-story building). That, my friends, is a mighty big boat! God gave Noah the task of building the ark because He had already given him the talents and abilities to be able to complete the work. I'm sure God watched Noah every day as he cut each board and hammered every nail and I bet He enjoyed every minute of it.
"The steps of the godly are directed by the LORD. He delights
in every detail of their lives."Psalm 37:23, NLT
God delights in watching you use the talents and abilities He has given you; it makes Him smile. It wouldn't surprise me in the least if God were up in heaven, seated on His throne taking pictures of you as you perform on this stage called life. He applauds you as you move from Act 1 onto Act 2 and picks you up when you fall down. He gives rave reviews of your performance to Jesus and the Holy Spirit as you daily seek to please Him in all you do.
"He has shaped each person in turn;now He watches everything we do."Psalm 33:15, MSG
