  1. Man Creates because God did and still does in us but God does not make mistakes, man can and does.

    The Ark was built by amateurs, but the Designer was the LORD; “The Titanic was built by professionals but who was the designer?”…

    Jesus is our Ark offering us Salvation but also Strength to face the Storms of Life, (see below) we don’t have to suffer them alone.

    Isaiah 43:1-3 – Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters and great trouble, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown! When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Saviour.”

    God’s Blessings Always – Anne
