Friday, January 4th: Genesis 8:1-10:32; Matthew 4:12-25; Psalm 4:1-8; Proverbs 1:20-23 ~ Emma

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Genesis 8:1-10:32; Matthew 4:12-25; Psalm 4:1-8; Proverbs 1:20-23

This year, I am following the blog but I am only reading the Old Testament through in a year.

Today, what stood out to me was in Genesis 9:8-17, where God is talking about His new covenant. 

We can see that God’s promises stayed true, because the earth has never been flooded again, the seasons have always come as expected, and the rainbow keeps appearing in the sky. I love that we see God’s faithfulness early on in the Bible, so we already know that this is an important part of His character. 

I also wonder what it would have been like to be among the firsts to see a rainbow. The skies are always dark and gloomy when it rains, so imagine going from days upon days of that, to seeing so many different vibrant colours in the sky arranged so perfectly. That would definitely have been an amazing thing to see!

This reminds me of the song lyric (which I think is based off a Psalm), "your love oh Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness stretches to the sky". The rainbow is a clear sign of that love and faithfulness!
