The Captain of Destiny Industry

God asked Noah to construct an ark He provided him a detailed instruction God gave him a head start, prior to construction It would have three decks, a door and a window as its bench mark Then Noah And Sons Ark Company (NASAC) began its task The ark had no rudder, so the folks laughed at Noah and his boat It needed no rudder to steer it, it only needed to float “Umm, God do you think we can fix a rudder on this ark?” Noah ask “Noah my son, this is where most folks missed my boat To need a rudder means you know how to arrive at your destination My son I will steer you to safety, I am your salvation I’ll finance the project; here you are with the bank note” So NASAC constructed the ark out of their comfort zone But how did Noah get all the animals on board? God supernaturally directed the animals like a horde About 80,000 animals went in, each identical sexes like a clone It was full with thousands of animals with a smell of a zoo Most of the animals who took a nap during the weary ride were bored The King Lion, the Eagle and the Elephants were the Executive board The young pigeons in the ark often “coo” But was old Noah sure it would rain? Was it a mystery? Did he project the atmospheric weather forecast? Noah was indeed a wise man, he began to broadcast No one heeded and the flood did come; it was the worst disaster in history How many would buy a Jaguar without a steering wheel? Are you so wise fixing your own rudder? To steer around the mountain you encounter? Rest in Him, for He predestinated you for the good pleasure of His will By faith Noah, being divinely warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became a heir of the righteousness which comes by faith. Heb 11:7

Hello Gideon: Great poem!!! I really liked the way you compared purchasing a jaguar without a steering wheel to trying to navigate a boat without fixing the rudder. PEACE.
