Give Me A Sign

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.

Genesis 9:13 – 15

Children delight in rainbows. They want to follow a rainbow to its end or run and jump through it if it appears in a spray of water. We tell children the story of Noah, and how God’s rainbow became a sign of God’s lasting promise that he will never again send a flood to destory life on earth. God doesn’t always seal his promises with a visual sign; sometimes we see God’s promises reflected in other ways.

Consider Becky, a single mom with two toddler girls. She received no child support or other assistance from her ex-husband, and while Becky had a hard time making ends meet, somehow they managed. When the week’s groceries ran out a day early, a friend brought over a pizza. When she needed to pay a doctor’s bill, her tax refund came a month early. When it looked as though her week’s vacation would be spent at home with her two girls, a couple from church offered to let them stay in their cottage.

What rainbows do you see? Where do you witness God’s faithfulness to you? Look for it in the small needs he meets at just the right time. Credit his goodness when good fortune comes your way.

PRAYER

God, thank you …
