Footsteps

"This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God." Genesis 6:9

I read this verse in my devotions yesterday and it has stuck with me ever since then. I particularly was interested that Noah was a just man and that he walked with God. Wow! What a role model to his generation and to ours too. Dictionary.com defines just as 'guided by truth, reason, justice, and fairness.' What a compliment was paid to Noah.


I like the fact that it says he walked with God. That reminds me of Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden - walking and talking with God each day. We each have this ability for communion with God too, as long as we choose to access that line of communication. The line is always open and available, never busy.


As I think about Noah, it also causes me to pause and wonder what footsteps am I leaving behind for my children and others I relate to to follow. I pray I can walk like Noah - to be a just woman who walks with God and others know it by my life. My heart's desire is to follow my Lord and Savior.
