“12 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 future generations: 13 I have placed My bow in the clouds, and it will be a sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. 14 Whenever I form clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, 15 I will remember My covenant between Me and you and all the living creatures: water will never again become a flood to destroy every creature. 16 The bow will be in the clouds, and I will look at it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all the living creatures on earth.” 17 God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant that I have confirmed between Me and every creature on earth.”
Yes – this happened today! I stop, stare, and marvel in His promises. You see, there are many in this world who plead, yes beg, for a “sign” from God. Oh my friends, you are looking at it! The first thing that comes to my mind are the words from the hymn “I Stand Amazed in the Presence” – How marvelous! How wonderful! And my song shall ever be: How marvelous! How wonderful! Is my Savior’s love for me!
Even more, I am amazed that God Himself says this is v14, “Whenever I form clouds over the earth and the bow appears in the clouds, 15 I will remember My covenant between Me and you and all the living creatures: water will never again become a flood to destroy every creature.” God not only keeps His promises (always) but He never forgets! God Himself, the Creator, made a personal statement to His creation by saying “I will remember...” How does this resonate with you? For me, I see Father God looking down with love at the sight of every rainbow all across the world saying, “Look at what I’ve done for YOU!” Yet, are you too busy to even notice? The God of all creation is having an open dialogue by this visible sign; however, many fail to even look up and acknowledge its existence.
We are increasingly losing our focus on God in this sinful world. The enemy has masterfully orchestrated distractions to lure you away from the Creator. What are your distractions? I encourage you all to bask in His presence the next time you witness the miracle of a rainbow – yes miracle. God placed this sign in the sky as a covenant with all living creatures; I would call that a miracle my friends!
I beg you not to miss the “rainbows” in your life. God is constantly speaking; however, are you listening, watching, seeking?
Stop! Take a breath! Look up! He’s speaking to you AND the whole world!
I am forever grateful for dear friends that shared this experience with me. Thank you Sarah F. and Nelda R for your obedience and worship!
Question: Are you too distracted to see God speaking in plain sight?
