He waited seven more days and again sent out the dove from the ark. When the dove returned to him in the evening, there in its beak was a freshly plucked olive leaf! Then Noah knew that the water had receded from the earth. He waited seven more days and sent the dove out again, but this time it did not return to him.

– Genesis 8:10-12 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Noah experienced the Flood, the greatest catastrophe to hit the earth. At the end of forty days of rain, Noah was looking for dry land, but he would have to wait two more weeks in the Ark before he would find any. There are times when we feel that we have faced incredible hardship only to be forced to patiently wait for the promise of God. If Noah had ventured too soon he would have certainly drowned, but God faithfully guided Noah as he waited for the right conditions.
