Genesis 9:11-17

Last night there was a severe thunderstorm warning in Linn County and there was heavy rain.  It’s raining right now and the forecast shows that more showers and storms are likely tomorrow.  About this time in June 2008, Cedar Rapids experienced a flood.  You may have heard about it.

Iowa had another flood in 1993.  You may remember hearing about that flood as well.  At that time, someone said to me that they thought God wasn’t going to let floods happen.  I responded that God said he wouldn’t destroy the earth by flood again.

God’s word is good.  He keeps his promises.  He will send rainbows and He will remember His covenant.  God remembers what rainbows mean.  Let us remember too.
