PARENT BIBLE STUDY
Read: Genesis 9
God’s promises are certain. Read what he promised Noah after he had destroyed everyone and everything on the earth: “This is my promise to you: All life on the earth was destroyed by the flood. But that will never happen again. A flood will never again destroy all life on the earth,” Genesis 9:11.
God went one step further with his promise and gave us a visual reminder. Genesis 9:12-17 says that he gave people proof of his promise by putting a rainbow in the clouds. Then God said, “When I see this rainbow, I will remember the agreement between me and you and every living thing on the earth. This agreement says that a flood will never again destroy all life on the earth.” So, the rainbow is proof of God’s promise to us to never again destroy the whole world in a flood, but it’s also a sign for God to remember his promise. Is a rainbow like a string around God’s finger so he doesn’t forget and accidentally flood the whole Earth again? No. It’s a covenant symbol—like a wedding ring—to show everyone, bride and groom included, that a promise has been made.
Because of God’s promise, we don’t have to watch the skies in fear of another flood. Next time you see a rainbow, let it remind you of God’s grace and patience towards you.
Do you live in fear or do you trust God’s promises are true?
