Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. So the Lord said, "I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have them." Genesis 6:5-8
And God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them, I will destroy with the earth." Make yourself an ark... ( from verses 14 to 21 God instructs Noah how to build the ark, and it's the life saving purpose). Noah obeyed God and he and his family saved from the destructive flood.
There is an ark of safety for us now from the violence, destruction and death which to often fills our earth. The ark is Jesus Christ, God The Son. He came to earth to lift us above the floods of danger, death and destruction to mind, body soul and spirit as trust and rest in Him.
The words of the Lord in the ninety first Psalm give us great hope. "Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him: I will set him on high because he has known My Name. He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him, And show him My salvation." Psalm 91:14-16
Prayer: May we never be in.a place or situation where God says enough is enough, and not be able to enter his ark of safety, Jesus, God the Son. Amen
Love in Christ, Verileah Teets
