Genesis Chapter 10 Do You Trust the Genealogy?

At first glance, this chapter may make you want to skip it altogether, do not miss the importance of this chapter. Right away, verse 1 states, "Now this is the genealogy of the sons of Noah: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. And the sons born to them after the flood." This first verse tells us about the earth's repopulation after the flood. It also reaffirms God's continued commitment to humanity. Genesis chapter 9:11, states " I establish my covenant with you. Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood. Never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth." The historical genealogy in this chapter provides us with information about how nations were established. God does not want to hide anything from His children; He wants us to know and understand where we are from; wisdom honors Him. Whenever faced with making a decision, there is a tendency to want to have a full picture a good understanding of the facts before committing. We all want to make an informed decision. Especially a decision about our salvation, which is the most important decision we will ever make. The book of Genesis has been very clear about the important framework surrounding our relationship with God. Some of the reoccurring key factors in this book have been trusting and obedience. Genesis chapter 10 concludes with these words in verse 32. "These were the families of the sons of Noah, according to their generations. In their nations and from these, the nations were divided on the earth after the flood." Let me encourage you to read Genesis chapter 10 and look for the hand of God. Realize that your life was carefully planned out and orchestrated by a loving and just Father. Even if your life has not been easy, know that each journey can bring you one step closer to your Heavenly Father. Rest assured, justice is in His hands, and He will repay.

Remember God loves you, and so do I.
