How Noah Changed the Mind of God

Noah sacrifice to God

God says he does not change (Malachi 3:6). That refers to his character and nature. However, he can change his mind. This was illustrated in the encounter of Noah with the Lord.

God is not so fixed in his decision that he doesn't consider changing his mind when the need arises.

Adam and Eve sinned against the Lord (Genesis 3). He gave each of them their punishment. To the woman he said will experience pain in childbearing. To the man, the Lord said the ground will not bring forth food for him. But will bring forth thorns instead (Genesis 3:16-19).

This is the reason conception is difficult for women today. But God reversed the man's difficulty in getting food from the ground because of the act of a great man called Noah (Genesis 6:8).

The sin of Adam and Eve opened doors for more sin to spread across the world. God was appalled by it, and the nature of wickedness in the heart of man destroyed the world with a flood (Genesis 6:13).

Despite the rampant sin of the world, Noah was not caught up by it (Genesis 6:9). God found him favorite for his plan to build an ark to sustain the life that will keep the world going after the flood (Genesis 6:14-17).

The rain fell from above, also from below (Genesis 7:11). The whole earth was covered with flood until it abated after one hundred and fifty days (Genesis 8:2-3).

Noah and everyone else came out from the ark to start a new life on the newly washed earth.

Noah in appreciation to God built an altar to offer a burnt offering. The Lord pleased with the sacrifice changed his mind on the statement he made concerning man finding it difficult in getting food from the ground.

In Genesis 8:22 God says: “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”

That is in variance with what he previously said, that the ground will bring thorns and thistles (Genesis 3:18-19). Therefore it is easy today to get the produce of what is planted in the soil.

The ground would not bring forth food if not for Noah’s sacrifice, and the hunger in the world would have been terrible.

This is in fulfillment with what was written in Genesis 5:29 concerning Noah: “And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the Lord hath cursed.”

Just as Noah changed the mind of God, so also anyone can do the same. He did so on an altar with acceptable sacrifice. So also the mind of God can be changed on an altar of prayer with an acceptable sacrifice of consistent praises and worship.

Set up your altar to reverse all pronouncement and incantations that have been said against your destiny.
