Recovering from a global disaster: Genesis 6–10

After living through 150 days, that’s just short of four months, of a major Flood, any reasonable person might start to get a bit worried about ever seeing dry land again. But God hadn’t forgotten:

Genesis 8:1-3 But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and livestock with him in the boat. He sent a wind to blow across the earth, and the floodwaters began to recede. The underground waters stopped flowing, and the torrential rains from the sky were stopped. So the floodwaters gradually receded from the earth.
