The Rainbow: A Covenant from God. Genesis 9:13 “I set my rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.”
When we see a rainbow we are reminded of the covenant that God gave us to never flood the earth again. A covenant is a promise that will never be broken. This came after God destroyed the earth by flooding it. God had Noah build an ark and had animals and his family get on it. Then it rained for 40 days and 40 nights.
We can be assured that God never changes. God will not go back on His promises. So this covenant to not flood the whole earth will never happen again.
When I see a rainbow, I see a promise God gave to us all. I know that God does not break his promises. It reminds me of promises I make to God and that I shouldn’t break them like the covenant he made with us on earth. It also reminds me of the beauty he created.
Genesis 9:15-17 “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.” So God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth.”
Whenever you see a rainbow think about God’s awesomeness, remember He is always near, and trust and have faith in the Lord.
