Interesting how chapter 8 is the chapter of new beginnings and the number 8 symbolizes new beginnings.
Noah has been in the ark for months and perhaps felt forgotten because he didn't know how long he’d be in the ark.
The Hebrew text uses the word zakar, which means "to remember." In English to "remember" means to mentally recall an event or action, but in the Bible, and especially in reference to God, "to remember" points to the commitment to act upon a previous covenant obligation. God’s remembering proves His faithfulness.
God showed that He remembered Noah by causing the waters to decrease and creating a whole new world for him and his family.
