We continue with our theme of the year “Break Camp…. and Advance” (Deuteronomy 1:6). Today we focus on the topic “The Covenant Remembering God”.

In Genesis 9:16, the flood ended, the waters receded, the ark stopped rocking, and the ground was dry. God's year long judgment on mankind's sin and wickedness had finally ended, and Noah and his family survived. Even though they were safe, imagine how frightening and traumatic it must have been to live through the flood and witness its mass destruction. From that day forward, every time it rained, Noah and his family would be fearful of another flood producing the same kind of destruction.
God knew they might be fearful, so in His sweet mercy He made a covenant, a promise, to Noah and all the earth.

In this covenant, God promised unconditionally that He would never send another flood to destroy all life on the earth. Three times God reiterated His promise to “never again” destroy the earth by such a flood. After living through such a traumatic experience, it seems God wanted to reassure Noah, so He graciously repeated the promise. Not only did God reassure Noah - by repeating His promise- but also He sealed it with a sign: The Rainbow.

As we explore the Bible, we will see God giving His people visible signs to help them remember His covenant promises. In Genesis 9, God sealed His promise with a rainbow in the sky. In the midst of the devastation from the flood of judgment, there was a beautiful rainbow in the sky symbolizing God's gracious promise!

God did not promise we will never experience storms, but He has promised He would be with us during the storm moments. God further promised, “Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant …” Genesis 9:16. God knows we are forgetful, but He is not. He never forgets His covenants and reassures us with a rainbow that He always remembers.
So as LUC, as we go through our storms we must always bear in mind that He is always a Covenant Remembering God.
