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.

My dad is a man of immense integrity. He was always very careful in his speech and his promise were always kept. It’s a biblical principle I could follow better!
Thanks Helene on sharing about your Dad. I think we could all follow this principle better too. Blessings
This is a great reminder. I teach four year olds and it is one of the things I stress with them as well!
Thanks Stasia for your comment. We need to teach our children young to understand how they can rely on God, thank you for doing that. Blessings.
I sometimes hesitate to tell people I will pray for them. Not that I don’t want to, but if I prayed for every single prayer request, I would do nothing else all day! And I’d still forget half of them! So thankful for a God who never forgets His promises 🙂
Hi Brittany, you are exactly right. Blessings.
Thank you so much for this post. It really hits home. And serves as a great reminder about promises and keeping them. Lovely! Visiting from Faith-Filled Fridays Link-Up 🙂
Definitely my pleasure Liz, Have a great weekend. Blessings Terri
I have been thinking this week that I need to be careful to really pray for those I promise to pray for. Even if I stop what I am doing and pray right then and there. I think writing pray requests people give me is an important thing to do since I want to be true to my word.
Hi Judith, I find myself thinking, “Oh I promised to pray for them”, that’s when I stop and actually do it. Thank you for taking the time to comment on my post and visiting Darling Downs Diaries. Blessings Terri
In my case, I sometimes don’t pray for individual people. I lift my heart to the Lord and praise Him and glorify Him re: the possibility of consequences, because He will turn people’s hearts to Him and move them from sinfulness… unless they refuse. He did it to me 48-1/2 years ago, and I’m a very blessed person, and know if He could break into my horrific sinfulness when in my teens and early 20, He can break into anyone. That’s what I count on. When I see the rainbows I always rejoice. Thank you.
Thank you Joanne for your comment and for sharing, may God bless you. Terri
I’m so thankful for His promises. They sustain and strengthen me and knowing He is always faithful to keep them . . . Wow! Thanks so much for joining the Link Party and Counting My Blessings! Enjoy a wonderful weekend.
Thanks Deb, may God bless you this weekend.
