As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease. – Genesis 8:22
We can rely on God to allow the seasons to keep going with no interruption as long as the earth endures. God is so reliable and His promises are true!
Of course in this present day, we wonder why there have to be floods in some parts of the world while other parts seem to be burning up. I don’t have answers to those questions, but I do keep the folks in those areas in my thoughts and prayers every day. We just need to trust God’s sovereign wisdom in these situations. I’m not omnipotent, but He is.
The rainbow in the sky after the rain is packed with promises and makes every Christian smile with a sense of contentment with their Creator. I believe most of us take a moment to silently pray, thanking God for giving us another chance to be the people He wants us to be in Him.
We only want to please our Father and make Him smile. When we see evidence of His promises in the rainbow, it makes us want to be better in our faith. It makes us want to walk even closer to God.
I suppose we can also look at this scripture and be reminded of a time of sowing the precious seed of the Word, which at times brings about a harvest, gathering souls into it. Then there is a winter season, cold, with things seeming withered and dead. Then there are summer seasons, when everything looks smiling and cheerful. But sometimes summer brings with it intense heat – which could represent the persecution of God’s people. I pray He is pleased with what we do with this wonderful life He gave us.
We have God’s promise that the seasons will continue until the time when He will turn to Jesus and tell Him to return to earth to gather His own and bring them to Him. I look forward to that time, don’t you? 🙂
