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