אֵלֶּה תּוֹלְדֹת נֹחַ נֹחַ אִישׁ צַדִּיק תָּמִים הָיָה בְּדֹרֹתָיו אֶת־הָאֱלֹהִים הִתְהַלֶּךְ־נֹחַ׃
E-leh tol’dot No-ach No-ach ish tza-dik ta-mim ha-ya b’do-ro-tav et-ha-E-lo-him hit-ha-lekh–No-ach.
These are the generations of Noah. Noah was in his generations a man righteous and whole-hearted; Noah walked with God.
Believe That Your Life Is Worth Living
Noah’s name in Hebrew is Noach, which means “rest” and “comfort.” Noah was obedient to God. Noah was a man of faith and righteousness. This is important and Noah stands out prominently among those of time. Noah found grace in the eyes of God, even in the midst of a corrupt generation. Noah is described as a righteous, blameless man who walked with God. What does it mean to “walk with God”? How do we as believers maintain our moral integrity and spiritual core in an ever changing society to walk with God?
We must be like Noah. There is something in you is greater than what you see and your surroundings, and it is your duty to guard it. Success is already built within you. You must tap into your success. God has place something unique inside of you and He wants you to tap into it by walking with Him.
Join us as we empower you to walk with God and see your dreams accomplished.
The act of Creation was not a one-time event. Creation is continual and ongoing. Yotzer Ohr (“Creator of Light”) is a Blessing of Creation which reminds us that, “God, in His goodness renews each day, perpetually, the act of creation.”
You were created for a specific purpose. Find your passion. Power and energy come from focusing on what excites you. Extraordinary success is achievable even from the smallest of beginnings. Be passionate about what you love and give it your very best. And always choose to remember the good things in life.
