Basking in God’s Creation


Or who shut in the sea with doors when it burst out from the womb, when I made clouds its garment and thick darkness its swaddling band, and prescribed limits for it and set bars and doors, and said “Thus far shall you come, and no farther, and here shall your proud waves be stayed?’ Job 38:8-11


All in one day, as I was doing my six-mile walk, I see a rainbow appearing to come out of the ocean, then I saw this double rainbow, and then this complete rainbow. I marveled in that I had never seen  a complete rainbow before. How great our God is! Faithful is he to his promise never to flood the world again.

“…I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth. And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations. I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth…” Genesis 9:11-13

It is good and right that we enjoy the good things that are given to us, but we must be ever mindful to appreciate the giver of the gift. God is worthy of our praise.
