I have always thought that Noah was safe inside the ARK since he built it according to God’s specifications. I thought that perhaps it was the strength of the gopher wood & the soundness of the architecture that ensured that the waters of the flood would not come into the Ark.
But today I encountered a verse that shifted this whole paradigm. Let’s read what Gen 7:16 says, “The animals going in were male & female of every living thing as God had commanded Noah… AND THE LORD SHUT HIM IN.”
Don’t miss this… even after Noah had built the Ark, it was God Himself who shut him in, in order to shut out the waters of the flood.
In other translations this verse says, “The Lord sealed them inside.”
May the Almighty God seal us inside His Ark of protection through this year of 2020.
It is not the fact that you have locked your house that keeps you safe at night, it is not your good driving skills that keeps you safe on the road, neither is it your healthy eating habits that keeps you healthy. Only God can shut you in & shut out the devil that is seeking to devour you.
Father I pray that in this year of 2020 & beyond, as we walk & as we drive on the roads, Oh God shut us in your presence. Father we pray as your children that in the midst of Corona Virus dangers… You shut us in your Ark of protection & compassion!
GOD SHUT US IN & SHUT OUT ALL ENEMIES AROUND US, AS WE OBEY & TRUST IN YOUR WORD. In Jesus Name, Amen!
