"Shut in" - by God!
'The Lord shut him in.'-Genesis
Noah was shut in away from all the world by the
hand of divine love. The door of electing purpose interposes
between us and the world which lieth in the wicked one. We are
not of the world even as our Lord Jesus was not of the world.
Into the sin, the gaiety, the pursuits of the multitude we
cannot enter; we cannot play in the streets of Vanity Fair with
the children of darkness, for our heavenly Father has shut us
in. Noah was shut in with his God.
