I’ve written before about the account of Noah and the ark being a picture of salvation and safety we have in Christ.
I read a book this morning that brought a new revelation to me about this wonderful piece of typology.
When the ark was built there were no windows lower down in the walls of the ark.
The window was near the top of the ark.
So when the floodwaters devastated the earth the inhabitants in the ark would not have seen the turmoil going on around them.
I tried to picture what would have been going on outside the ark as the waters rose and rose.
People would have been struggling, screaming, drowning; scrambling maybe to try and get into the ark.
It would have been a terrible and fearful sight.
But Noah and his family would only have been able to look upwards towards the sky.
This is telling us that when we are in Christ we should still be looking upwards, looking to God and the things of God.
Even Jesus at times turned his eyes upwards, telling us He too looked to God the Father.
In Jesus we have safety and salvation, He is the only place where this can be found.
But even in this state we need to keep looking to the Lord for His guidance, advice and council.
Look upwards today and see what the Lord has for you!
Speak this out…..”Thank you Lord for the safety and salvation we have in Christ”.
Genesis 6 v 18…..But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee
