Gathering Supplies for the Ark

by Ark Encounter on September 23, 2015

Taking a trip through the Ark design studio warehouse reveals just how much things are beginning to pile up. Many of the exhibits, cages, and cargo boxes await the day when we can start shipping things down to the Ark site to be assembled inside the Ark.

Imagine Noah’s faith. Not only did he build the Ark according to God’s specific dimensions, but can you fathom the logistics involved in gathering enough food and supplies for his family and all of the animals. Imagine all of the space all of these items would take up as the Ark was being prepared. Did he need to build storehouses just for these items? Did animals arrive early to give Noah’s family time to study their habits so that they would know what kinds of food and how much of it to bring? How much space would they require? Noah’s responsibilities involved so much more than building the Ark itself.

Within a year, our stockpiles of exhibits, cages, animals, and cargo will be tucked away neatly in the Ark. And instead of animals lined up to go in, we trust that thousands upon thousands of visitors will line up to go into the Ark. Pray that believers will have their faith strengthened as they learn more about the reliability and authority of God’s Word. Also, pray for the unbelievers who will visit. Pray that they will come to believe the gospel and learn that without faith it is impossible to please God and that He rewards those that diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6).
