The Noah Window
GOD IS OUR REFUGE
“This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; He is my God, and I trust him.” Psalm 91:2
This window depicts the ark of Noah’s refuge as the world gives way to the flood. Noah walked with God and he was given refuge in time of need - a refuge from the storm and a shade from the heat. God is still that stronghold for every storm-tossed soul that turns to Him. He is always near. “The Lord is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust in Him.” (Nahum 1:7) Always loving. “How priceless is your unfailing love, O God! People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.” (Psalm 36:7)
In another boat, on another stormy sea, Jesus asked His friends to understand that He was the only refuge they needed. He still is. He asks you to come to Him and trust Him with your life and all that’s in it. He loves you and cares for you. He is your refuge and strength, an always present help in trouble.
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
