I pray that you are all blessed and highly favored of the Lord on today. I speak blessings of peace in your life and your entire household.
(Genesis 9:12-17) And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant I am making between 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 ad 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."
The above scripture is the Lord God speaking to Noah after the flood that destroyed the earth. Noah and his sons and their wives lives were all spared due to Noah's obedience in following God's instructions. Before the flood, God had provided water out of the ground to cultivate the plants for food and the trees. Water had never fell from the sky until the flood.
I have seen a lot of rainbows in my time. Every time you see a rainbow you just look at it because they don't feel the sky very often. Rainbows are very beautiful and they always catch your attention. Most of the time, the only time that you will see a rainbow is after the rain and the sun begins to come out. I have read that scripture a numerous of times but never concentrated on the part when God tell Noah that the rainbow is a covenant between Him and all generations to come.
Woman of God, there are a lot of things that we see everyday and take advantage of by not knowing exactly why God has placed it there or what God's intentions really were when He has done what He has done. Every time I see a rainbow, I think about the covenant that God made with us. God said that He will never destroy the earth with water again. So, that is the reason why when I see a rainbow in the sky, I always think about the Lord God.
What I want you to remember today, is that God always keeps His promises. Even now, He still shows us the rainbow that He had shown to Noah as a covenant between Noah and the generations to come. The bible is full of God's promises for us. I have learned that is it in my best interest to ask the Holy Spirit for knowledge and wisdom before reading the Word of God. There are so many promises and blessings that the Lord God has promised us, and the best way to understand the written Word is by asking for clear understanding before reading. This has helped me a lot. I didn't just come up with the idea to ask for clear understanding from the Holy Spirit, I was taught to do that in my church. So the next time you see a rainbow in the sky, smile, because God is watching you. LET US PRAY!
Heavenly Father, we thank and praise you for the rainbow in the skies and the meaning behind the rainbow. Thank you Lord for being God and God all by yourself. Lord, I know that you don't need me to praise you, but I offer a sacrifice of praise to you today, because of the life you have given me. Lord, I thank you for your Holy Spirit that will guide me and give me knowledge of Your written Word, in Jesus name, Amen.
