Too Much to Do?

In one of our church wide devotions this week http://www.elmbrook.org/called we are reminded, “Noah did everything just as God commanded him.”

As I reflect on the size of the boat and the number of animals he needed to provide for, I am tempted to picture Noah as exhausted. But, as I ponder, I really believe Noah had exactly the right number of hours in his day to finish his work. I am imagining that he slept well and woke up refreshed.

Why?

Because he did everything that God asked him to do. This implies that Noah, himself, did not add to the list, nor did he invite others to expand his assignment.

Honestly speaking, I feel as though I have too much to do today. I have not been careful to filter the origin of the things on “my list.” There is simplicity to what I am learning from Noah: “Just do what God tells me.”

That is all I have to do.
