And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making beteen me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: 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 the earth.”
– Genesis 9:12-16
This is what we saw last Thursday evening (September 17th). It’s rare to see a rainbow, rarer still a double rainbow. Rainbows are amazing and awe-inspiring to me. Not only is a reminder to us and God about his promise to Noah, but it also reminds me that God ALWAYS keeps His promises. No matter how well intentioned we may be, we, as humans, tend to break promises. How awesome is it that, no matter what, God will never break His promises to us?
