Windows have two primary functions: one is to let people look out, the other is to let the light shine in.
When God gave Noah the instructions for an ark to save his family, He designed it with only one window in the entire huge structure. It was to be near the top of the boat, perhaps encircling the entire vessel. Noah could look out upon the waters and up toward heaven.
We have here many spiritual lessons. The ark is a picture of Christ (1 Pet. 3:20-22), who bears His own through the waters of judgment to the the heavenly places of security and divine fellowship (Eph. 2:6). Even as Noah and his family were not to be touched by the waters of God’s wrath, so also we will be delivered.
Darkness may surround the believer, but the clear blue of God’s love and the warmth and light of His smile await the ransomed soul who will simply look to God in His Word. If the Lord Jesus does not return soon and physical death comes to us, we need not fear the passage through the deep valley of death or the lashing waves of judgment.
Through the window of the Bible we may look up with hope into the shining realities of eternity!
Keep looking to Jesus through all of your life
If you want to brighten each day;
The windows of heaven are open to you:
The light of God's Word for your way. —Hess
When the outlook is dark, try the uplook!
