Genesis 5 - Key

v29

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.

It seems like every now and then, the Lord, in His goodness, brings along someone who does something great and makes things better for everyone. Like Noah, and people receiving the privilege to eat meat (See Genesis 9:3) or Samuel Morse and the invention of the telegraph (The first message sent over the telegraph was, What has God wrought? Numbers 23:23).

If we want to be like that, we should make sure we're walking with God.

Genesis 6:9
These [are] the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man [and] perfect in his generations, [and] Noah walked with God.
Genesis 5:24
And Enoch walked with God: and he [was] not; for God took him.

Application

When I'm trying to create or accomplish some great thing, I'll remember that if I want the Lord's blessing in it, so I can really succeed, I need to be doing what He wants.

Psalm 127:1
Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh [but] in vain.
