In times of distress and judgment, it is a normal human reaction for a believer to lose hope and think that God has forgotten them. In Psalm 10:1, David confessed that he was distressed because he felt as if God had forgotten him during troubling times. Paul admitted that his issues in Asia were so severe that he was close to giving up on life (2 Corinthians 1:8). Even Jesus experienced the human emotion of hopelessness on the cross when He cried out to God (Matthew 27:46). Genesis 8:1-9:17 shows that when hope is lost, all is not lost. God does not remain silent or still. When hope is lost, God remembers His creatures, blesses His people, and remembers His covenant.
