Genesis 9:13-16 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on earth.
Minnesota received a much needed rain last week. Following the rain, came an amazing full rainbow that covered the evening sky with its brilliant colors! The internet was flooded with pictures of this beautiful rainbow.
God made a promise to Noah and to all people many years ago to never flood the earth to destroy all life. It will rain and it will flood, but not to the extent of Noah’s flood. God will stop the rains before the waters raise to that level. And then, He will send a rainbow as a reminder of His covenant.
You will experience rainy seasons in your life. Your circumstances may become dark and cloudy. Be patient as you trust God’s timing. He will send a rainbow of light back into your life.
The next time you see a rainbow. Instead of looking down for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, look up to the creator. The one who placed the rainbow in the sky as a covenant of love between you and Him.
