Midweek Moment

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 generations to come: I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over 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.’ So God said to Noah, ‘This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth.' (Genesis 9:12-17)


Sunday night I received this picture in a text message from our Youth Minister Brandon Bishop.  He took it in the parking lot as he was leaving after youth group. Not just a rainbow - but a double rainbow seen over our Family Life Center!!!!

As we saw in Genesis, rainbows are God's continued promise to us - that he would never again allow waters become a flood to destroy all of life. Every time we see a rainbow in the sky it serves as a reminder of God's love and care and concern as well as God's faithfulness. In those moments where things around us seem dark and we begin to give in to despair, a rainbow can be a reminder that God is ultimately the one in control. We can rest and relax knowing that "God's got this!" and we can trust in him for our future. 

Blessings,
