Because Noah had faith, he was warned about something that had not yet happened. He obeyed and built a boat that saved him and his family. In this way the people of the world were judged, and Noah was given the blessings that come to everyone who pleases God.

Hebrews 11:7

What are the blessings that come to everyone who pleases God?  When a man pleases God does that mean that he will not suffer or be in pain?  Does it mean that he will be rich in the things of this world?  When you please God does it mean that you will have no trouble for the rest of your life? 

The blessings for pleasing God that Noah got and that you will also receive are blessings of being spared the judgment of God that is coming on the world. 
If you please God, He will rescue you just as He did Noah when it comes time for His wrath to fall on those who have rejected Jesus Christ.  So do everything you do today that will be pleasing to God.  And even as Noah did, warn those around you of the coming judgment! 
“Lord Jesus, help me today to be ready like Noah was when the people of the world were judged.  Fill my heart with the blessings that come from pleasing the Father.  And may You be praised forever.  Amen.”
