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. When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, I will remember my covenant that is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh. And the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.”
Some days God seems so close to us that we practically feel Him right next to us. On other days, we don’t have that sense that He’s right next to us, and we ask, “Where are you, God?”
In reality, we know the answer even when we ask it. The answer is that God is always right there next to you, even when you don’t sense His presence. I’m sure that Noah had this same feeling after about two weeks on that ark with all those animals—but he knew God was ever-present. And God came and revealed Himself to him.
One of my favorite songs is entitled God of Wonders. The title to this song is absolutely true and should be the anthem of our lives. Our God is a God of wonders and of miracles, large and small. Just when you think that perhaps He has left you, He is there with exactly what you need!
If it is raining or even pouring in your life today, ask God to make His love and presence real to you. He is always there with just what you need, just when you need it.
OUR GOD IS A GOD OF WONDERS AND MIRACLES. HE’LL GIVE YOU JUST WHAT YOU NEED, JUST WHEN YOU NEED IT!
