God’s Word will stand for eternity. He keeps his promises. That’s what the rainbow represents.
Kara took this picture this afternoon just after a rainstorm. Today’s weather has been a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Each state has the worn-out joke about the weather: Want a change of season? Just wait 10 minutes. Hardy-har-har. It was true today for Indiana.
This picture is significant to me today because this day has been rather stinky below the surface. Above surface, everything went about as planned. Prayer with friend. School. Orthodontist. School again. Shop. Pick up kids. Appointments. Groceries. Home. Dinner. Bedtime.
The calm on top hid a jumbling, churning thought process below the surface.
I’m wrestling with a few issues, unsure of what to do. And some very dear loved ones are going through a rough patch that makes my issues look like a cakewalk. I’ve been weighted the entire day with concern, taking those concerns in prayer to the Lord.
Life includes bad things happening sometimes.
No matter what the outcome of all these concerns, I know the Lord will keep his Word. The Earth will keep turning. The seasons will come and go. Day and night will keep going. The Lord won’t leave us or forsake us. The Lord is good and merciful. God is the source of life, and by Him all things exist. I know my Redeemer lives.
When life is a jumbled mess, I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I’ve committed unto Him against that day.
Even though Noah’s Flood happened thousands of years ago, that rainbow is a reminder every time we see it that God will not flood the entire earth again. I believe with all my heart God keeps his promises.
