Our faithful God has worked miracles to many who are diagnosed medically barren. This is evident in the Bible and even in my wife, who was told that she would have difficulty conceiving but is now a mother of three. Thus, we should willingly receive the hope of life in Jesus with open hearts and thanksgiving!
The world is about to be flooded and there are still obstacles between the snails and the Ark. The sea between the Ark and the snails represents the obstacles the snails have to overcome in order to be safe from the flood. I chose to illustrate this because the Ark, which represents God, provides a sense of hope that motivates everyone – that no matter who you are, to face all your challenges and not give up.
God gave us a sign through the parable of the fig tree. When the twigs get tender and its leaves appear, we know that summer is near. When we see revival in Israel, we know the day when the Lord is coming for us is near. This promise gives us great hope and endurance, knowing that all these will come to pass. Heaven and earth will pass away, but His words will never pass away – His promises never fail.
