In Genesis 10, there is a list of names; descendants from the three sons of Noah. Most of the names are only listed at this one place in the Bible. Most were not people that did anything exceptional during their lifetime or something that shaped the future in any way.
That’s the whole story of the Bible. It is not great people doing things for God; it is just regular people doing extraordinary things because of an amazing God. God knows each of us by name and has a place for each of us in this world. That is why it is important to take the initiative in being prepared for each day. Being the best “you” everyday so positive results are assured.
When our place in this world is discovered and we are constantly taking action to improve on a daily basis, that’s when we make a difference. Many of the phrases to characterize the people listed in this passage are written because of what their ancestors did in history. What is started in a lifetime may not come to full attainment until several generations in the future.
The thing is, if we start something now with ideas God is giving us to put down in words, we must not be discouraged if the idea is not immediately accepted and put to use. If it is put into words, the seed has been planted and some day it may grow into something extraordinary because God knows each of us by name and that makes all the difference.
This day with God, we have an efficient and effective way to meet with Him through the Holy Spirit; every activity, every conversation, every problem, and even every thought has a connection with God through the Holy Spirit. Therefore, let us explore, dream, and discover. Doubt can’t stop us if we accept God’s unlimited power to help step ahead.
