A Year Plus


I was recently asked a question that made me dig in the Scriptures.  The question was how many days did Noah and his family stay in the ark?  On the outset of the question I was shocked because I didn’t know the answer.

After reviewing Genesis 7 and 8 it was determined that Noah and his family were on the ark for a year and ten days.  Don’t you think that was a very long time to be that close to animals and the people in your family?  Yes I think so.  But it also says something else.

God will go through great lengths to protect us from the elements outside the ark of safety.  That is something to think about.  We will explore the ark from another angle in the next blog post.

For today know that God might have you in that tight and uncomfortable place in order to protect you from the elements outside.
