Genesis 8:1 reads “And God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters assuaged;”
Did you notice, that God not only remembered the living things in the ark, but he remembered each and every one of them? What is of importance, is to recognize, that there was life in the ark and they were in the thoughts of God. In fact, it is only in the ark that you could find life for all those who were not in it, perished in the flood.
Points to ponder:
Anyone who is in Jesus Christ, The Ark of God, given for man’s Salvation is passed from death to life (John 5:24) and those who abide in him have life, not just abundantly (John 10:10), but everlasting as well (John 5:24; John 3:16). The question is “Are you of the living?” i.e., “Do you have life?” i.e., “Are you abiding in the Ark (in Jesus Christ), having believed in him? If you have, you can be certain that even if the world has forsaken and forgotten you, and you feel lonely, you are not alone for you are not forgotten by God and his thoughts toward you is indeed wonderful and previous (Psalm 40:5; Psalm 139:17). Not only do we, who have believed in Jesus Christ, have life, but we are in the very thoughts of God – and that is wonderful and precious.
