The rainbow is the greatest sign that we have that God will keep His promises.
I love it when we see rainbows and we can explain to the children that this is Gods sign to us that He will never leave us nor forsake us.
He showed a rainbow to Noah and promised him that He would never send a flood again to destroy all people, and God is the only one I know who never breaks a promise.
Genesis 9:11 -13 “I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth:. And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you for all future generations: I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth”.
God is a God of His word. What He says He means and it will come to pass.
Are we people of our word, do we keep our promises???
I know that I need to be careful when the children ask for something or to do something that I don’t promise them something I can’t deliver. I want them to know that when I say something I mean it, and it will come to pass.
When you tell someone you are going to do something do you do it???
It is so easy to say “I will pray for you”, but do we. Maybe to help us we could have a prayer list so that we can remember all the people we need to pray for. Our lives are so busy that it is difficult to remember all the things we say we are going to do. So do we not say them or do we make ways that help us to remember?
I suppose it is both. I try to be careful with what I promise and offer to do and I am a great list maker and have numerous alarms on my phone to help me remember things.
We should make sure that what we say and promise are possible in our lives and we don’t just flippantly say anything just to be noticed or be important.
Our word represents who we are and who we follow and I want to follow God and endeavour to keep my promises just like He does.
