Thus I establish My covenant with you: Never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood; never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth." And God said: "This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth."
How I love this. His promise to all of us colors the sky in its unmatched beauty for all to see. Later that afternoon when my grandkids arrived, I told them about what Grandma had seen. I asked Jeffie to color me a picture of one while Lindsey was busy with her homework and Cody sat in his high chair making slow work of his teething biscuit. Jeffie said to me, “Grandma, why do we have rainbows?” And I suppose I could have given him all the scientific reasons of how they work, but I was happy to say with a thankful heart, “Because God promised them to us to enjoy.”
I know all of our hearts have been soo heavy with all that has happened in Haiti. My prayers have been with them all constantly. So much destruction is hard to understand. But God's love and promises are as constant and plentiful as always. I pray He watches over all the innocent little children especially, and fills the hearts and spirits of these people with hope for their futures. We serve a mighty and awesome God who can bring healing from the ashes.
Blessings to you all,
