This is a wonderful reminder, of what God asks of us. To “Trust” and “Obey”. Obeying God is going to look very different, from what the world is doing. This is a good check and balance.
Noah lived during a time of rapidly accelerating depravity. During his time, “every inclination” of the human heart had turned evil – much to God’s anguish.
As a “righteous man”, Noah stood in marked contrast from the rest of civilization. Noah “walked with God”, while the rest of humanity was walking in the opposite direction.
Put yourself in Noah’s sandals…. You see the world around you becoming more and more evil. Then God tells you He is going to judge the earth. You think: It’s about time something was done about all this wickedness! Then God tells you to begin building a boat/container large enough to house you whole family, and also representatives of each species of the animal kingdom!
Acting on nothing but faith, Noah built the ark to God’s exact specs. 2 times we’re told Noah did “all” or “everything” just as God commanded.
