Cary Cox, from Genesis 7-8:19 (Genesis Study 20). The account of the Flood is written in a way to draw our attention to God himself. He is sovereign over all that is happening; he reigns as King over the Flood, Lord of the chaos, God over all! He is showcasing the glory of his wrath in judging sin, and he is displaying the glory of his mercy in saving his covenant people. We can trust him in the chaos and the storm.
