Hebrews 11:7(KJV): By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.
It is nowhere recorded in the scriptures that an angel appeared to Noah and showed him a frightening vision of an earth drowned by water.
For an event of such cataclysmic proportions, one may be forgiven for imagining that God thundered to Noah this warning about destroying an increasingly wicked and violent human race.
But no such thing is written. For Noah, in the unspectacular, God wrapped divine instruction and convicted a man enough for him to build an ark.
In modern day speech, what Noah experienced may be loosely referred to as a hunch or a gut feeling but it was enough to compel him to obedience.
This faith is what qualified him to appear in Hebrews 11, on the Bible’s wall of fame.
Often, God inspires us in the most unspectacular ways. But He requires us to lean in even to the slightest convictions of the Spirit as He leads us.
When we bring this principle into the world of innovation, it is interesting to know that some of the great dreamers and inventors of the modern world, men and women who ushered in revolutions did not have Eureka moments. Mostly they had hunches but were tenacious enough to keep those hunches alive for years until the pieces came together.
The lesson to you is this; never wait for the spectacular to step out in faith. Sometimes an inkling or urge brewing in your spirit is all you need.

PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for Your precious Spirit who guides me and lights my path. I am fully responsive to his nudges and what He stirs deep within me. The eyes of my understanding are flooded with light to act on the slightest conviction of His person, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
