Scripture: Genesis 5
When Lamech named Noah, meaning rest, the Lord must have given him the name along with the hope that there would be a change in circumstance.
The time was obviously a trying one and the curse of the ground must have been intensely felt.
I wonder if Lamech knew by what means this “relief” would come?
I doubt it.
Would his perspective of God have changed?
The Lord knows what the world needs. “None can stay his hand or say to him, ‘What have you done?'” (Daniel 4:35).
Let your perspective of God not alter. He’s good, He’s sovereign, He knows the beginning and the end, and He knew you before you were in your mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5). He knows all our names. He loves us with a perfect Father’s love. Trust Him to bring relief; He gives rest to our souls.
Journal: Write a prayer thanking the Lord for what He’s done and what He’s going to do.
