Feb 7 daily devotion

Genesis 9:8-17

When the clouds part after a thundershower revealing a stunning arc of colors, how many times have you stopped to look and even called to others to join you?

That arc of color ties us right back to our ancestor Noah, to the moment after the flood when God made a promise, a covenant, that He would never again destroy the earth with a flood. Rain fell from heaven--and would continue to fall for the rest of the ages. But Noah did not need to fear the next time rain clouds gathered because God had made a promise. The rain would subside and the rainbow would appear. That visual sign would be a constant reminder that God always keeps His promises.

What does that have to do with prayer? Everything!!! When we pray, we reassert our faith that God keeps His promises. What we say out loud, or silently in our hearts, proclaims the truth of God's promises that we have read or heard in His word.

So the next time you stand in wonder at the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds, breathe a prayer of thanks to God that He will always keep His promises.

So, as the rain falls here this morning I thank God for all my answered prayers and for all those He didn't complete in the manner I asked. HE knows the outcome let Him be in control.

Hugs and prayers

I have a person I reached out to. She hasn't responded.

I asked God that if he wanted us to connect to make it happen. It's been a good month and hasn't happened.

This devotion tells me I need to quit wondering, I have my answer.

I also need to listen better because I had my answer long ago.
