perfect peace to those whose hearts are stayed upon Him. When man was unfallen, his
God gave him the flowery bowers of Eden as his quiet resting places; alas! how soon
sin blighted the fair abode of innocence. In the day of universal wrath when the flood
swept away a guilty race, the chosen family were quietly secured in the resting-place of
the ark, which floated them from the old condemned world into the new earth of the
rainbow and the covenant, herein typifying Jesus, the ark of our salvation. Israel rested
safely beneath the blood-besprinkled habitations of Egypt when the destroying angel
smote the first-born; and in the wilderness the shadow of the pillar of cloud, and the
flowing rock, gave the weary pilgrims sweet repose. At this hour we rest in the promises
of our faithful God, knowing that His words are full of truth and power; we rest in the
doctrines of His word, which are consolation itself; we rest in the covenant of His grace,
which is a haven of delight. More highly favoured are we than David in Adullam, or
Jonah beneath his gourd, for none can invade or destroy our shelter. The person of
Jesus is the quiet resting-place of His people, and when we draw near to Him in the
breaking of the bread, in the hearing of the word, the searching of the Scriptures,
prayer, or praise, we find any form of approach to Him to be the return of peace to our
"I hear the words of love, I gaze upon the blood,
I see the mighty sacrifice, and I have peace with God.
'Tis everlasting peace, sure as Jehovah's name,
'Tis stable as His steadfast throne, for evermore the same:
The clouds may go and come, and storms may sweep my sky,
This blood-sealed friendship changes not, the cross is ever nigh."
From Charles Spurgeon's Morning & Evening - December, Day 8, Evening.
1 Peter 1:18-21
18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were
redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, 19 but with
the precious blood of Christ , a lamb without blemish or defect. 20 He was chosen before
the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 21 Through him
you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and
hope are in God.

God's Promise To Noah
8 Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying: 9 "And as for Me, behold, I
establish My covenant with you and with your descendants after you, 10 and with every
living creature that is with you: the birds, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with
you, of all that go out of the ark, every beast of the earth. 11 Thus I establish My
covenant with you: Never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood; never
again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth."
12 And God said:"This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you,
and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13 I set My rainbow
in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. 14 It
shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud;
15 and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living
creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16
The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting
covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth." 17 And
God said to Noah, "This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between
Me and all flesh that is on the earth."
