By perseverance the snail reached the ark.

From 1 Corinthians 15:57-58:  “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Therefore, my beloved, be steadfast, immovable, always excelling in the work of the Lord, because you know that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.”

The closer we are to the Shepherd, the safer we are from the wolves.

From Isaiah 43:2-3:  “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you.  For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.”

To trust God in the light is nothing, but trust Him in the dark–that is faith.

From Romans 13:12:  “The night is far gone, the day is near.  Let us then lay aside the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.”

Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.

From 2 Timothy 3:16-17:  “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.”

Our hope in Christ for the future is the mainstream of our joy.

From Psalm 23:5-6:  You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.”

The Lord gets His best soldiers out of the highlands of affliction.

From 2 Corinthians 4:8-10:  “We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be made visible in our bodies.”

Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength.

From 1 Peter 5:6-7:  “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you in due time.  Cast all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you.”
