Today’s Word of Encouragement From Wayne:
“But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall enter the ark”
Hallelujah! When you and I walk with God, as Noah did, seeing favor and grace coming to us from our Lord God’s eyes, as Noah did, then this enables us to behold God’s covenant made with us, through the blood of our resurrected Savior, even as Noah beheld God’s covenant made with him.
So now, all that remains for us is to enter the ark of our covenant salvation, as Noah did.
In the Old Testament, the ark of the covenant of the law was in the Holy of Holies, in the temple, and only one person, the high priest, could enter one day each year.
In the New Covenant of grace and favor, Christ abides in us and we have become the temple, or ark, of God.
We have been made a kingdom of priests unto God (1 Peter 2:4-9, Revelation 1:5-6, 5:9-10). As such, God’s ark is now within us. When we enter our inner room, to be with our Abba Father, as Jesus taught (Matthew 6:6), we are within the ark - the ark of our salvation, the ark of the covenant, the ark of safety, the ark of God’s living abiding presence, the ark of our Savior Jesus Christ.
Beloved child of God, enter the ark today, the ark of God within you, and bless God for the New Covenant in Jesus Christ that grants us this beautiful beloved-child-of-God-priest-unto-God access within His presence, in the glory of all He is and all He has done.
Let God “establish” His glorious covenant within you even as you enter the ark He has made for you. Yes, enter and be further established afresh in His presence. Truly, the ark of the covenant abides within you now, in Jesus Christ! Hallelujah!
