Scripture of the Day - January 25, 2012

Genesis 8:9 But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returnedunto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark.
We have heard the comparison of the church being like Noah's ark.... whoever was to be saved had to get on board that ark or they would perish in the flood. This lone dove can symbolize those of us in the church who decide to leave. When we leave the Lord we will find no rest. We may learn to make do with what the world has to offer but we don't have that peaceful rest that passes all understanding. Just as the dove returned, we can return at any time and our gracious Lord always has His arms open wide for us. His hand will pull us into safety. There is no safer place to be than in the arms of Jesus.
Why don't you come to Him today, all you who are weak and heavily burdened? Why don't you return to Him today, all you who walked away and you will find rest for your soul?
