Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

“Every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground… and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark“ (Gen 7:23)

The very waters which lifted up Noah who was in the ark, drowned the people who were outside the ark. Here we observe the vast difference between sinners and saints, between those who trust in the Lord and those who trust in man or in themselves, and between those who love the Lord and those who don’t. While those who without Christ drown in the trials they face, those who cling to Christ and hide themselves in Him, are lifted up and drawn closer to God and heaven. “”All things work together for good to them that love God”" (Rom 8:28). It has been rightly said, “”Sanctified afflictions are spiritual promotions.”"

So don’t panic when faced with problems. Like David, say, “My soul trusteth in Thee: yea, in the shadow of Thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast” (Psa 57:1). If you are in the ‘Ark’, no flood, no problem, no matter how big, can drown you.

                  “Seas of sorrow, seas of trial
                   Bitterest anguish, fiercest pain
                   Rolling rages of temptation
                   Sweeping over heart and brain -
                   They shall never overflow us!”
