Need proof that God keeps His promises?
From Genesis: A 7-Week Devotional
Not too long ago, South Carolina experienced the kind of flooding that only happens once every thousand years. There was loss of life, property damage, injury, displacement and other harm to people. Many felt devastated and hopeless.
The 2015 flood gives us a shadow of what Noah experienced. When that flood was over, God made a promise that “...never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth” (Genesis 9:11). God’s promise was a covenant, a sacred agreement, between God and future generations. Rainbows are a sign of this covenant. Every time we see a rainbow, it’s a tangible reminder that God keeps His promises.
When we put our trust in God and His faithfulness, we can bear anything. God’s promise of security and safety is not a pledge to prevent trouble in the world (John 16:33). It is a pledge to each of us that God will be with us in the flood. He will protect us, provide for us, and work all things for the good of those of us who love Him (Romans 8:28).
