The Weather – Day 23
If there are rainbows in the area where you live, remind yourself next time you see one, that God is remembering that promise! And note that it is not a promise between God and people. But between God and EVERY creature on the earth! The whole world in His hands!
Whenever I bring clouds on 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.
What an amazing promise that is! If there are sometimes rainbows in the area where you live, remind yourself next time you see one, that God is remembering that promise! And note that it is not a promise between God and people, but between God and EVERY living creature on the earth! God remembers the smallest flying creature, the tiniest spider, and the unknown creatures living at the bottom of the oceans. He designed each one to do a specific task on this planet. And He watches them fulfill their tasks.
We often think that God made a covenant with man. But these verses make it clear that His covenant is with ALL living creatures. If the earth is to be in harmony each creature needs to play its part.
There are several Bible stories that teach us about God’s relationship with earth’s nature. I am thinking of the miraculous catch of fish when Jesus barbecued a fish, which we can suppose He had caught in preparation for the disciples return from a frustrating night on the lake (John 21).
Elijah was fed by a raven after his battle with Jezebel and her prophets of Baal (1 Kings 17:4).
Take note, as you go through your day today of some of the things happening in the natural world around you, weather, insects, birds, or any other “natural” phenomenon.
Praise The God of the universe that He still holds the whole world in His hands!
