I watched the story of Genesis the other day, and it got me thinking. During Noah’s days, from what I understand, and as it is written, God gave humanity 120 years to change its evil ways. God said, “My Spirit shall not strive with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years” (Genesis 6:3).

We can compare the times of Noah to our current challenging times. Many don’t see or understand that. I’ve noticed that over the last few years, God’s warnings have been even more frequent. Look at the weather patterns, political upheaval, anger, hate, and vanity that consume our world.

I believe we are being warned to change our ways. History is repeating itself. The visions and dreams of disaster that I and many others have seen and told may not happen today or tomorrow, but it will happen in the time that God has planned for it to happen. While these visions of disaster may or may not impact our lifetime, or our children’s lifetime, I believe it’s essential that we change our ways now, so with each generation, love and the word of God is even more influential.    

It’s hard feeling and dealing with this angry, heavy energy, especially if you are sensitive. It can feel like you’re weighed down by bricks daily. Each day you wake only, waiting for the next to be better. It’s so hard to function that many wish Armageddon would come so there can be peace again.  

We can’t wait for that forever, though. If we focus on waiting for the better to come, we may miss life completely. What I mean is, instead of waiting for the change to come where the world is more peaceful, stop. Don’t wait anymore. We may have to go through years and years upon years of difficult times and disaster and terrible energy before anything changes.  

Like in Noah’s time, it was 120 years. Things progressively got worse until one day; God decided it was enough. We can’t wait on the time it’s going to better; we have to live our life now, the way it is. It’s going to be this way until the day God decides it’s enough. We have to accept things the way they are. 

Focus on each day and find ways to make it better for yourself, start to do the things that make you happy, learn more about God, Jesus, and the things written in the Bible. Pray. Find your tribe of people.  

Let’s focus on making things better for the next several generations of people. After all, your grandparents, and their parents, and so on, their prayers are still protecting you.  

When we stay too focused on waiting for the next disaster and waiting for peace, we will lose sight of life happening around us. While there may be visions and a prophecy of the coming times, there always has been, so live each day like Jesus is coming back tomorrow, believe, repent, pray, love, and forgive.
