God's Faithfulness

God's Faithfulness

By Jill Briscoe

“I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind.  Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.” ~ Genesis 9:15

When God says, “Never again,” He means never again!  No doubt Noah believed God’s word.  One experience of the faithfulness of God leads us to trust in Him more.  Life’s experiences help us to look back and see God’s promises and judgments that have come true.

Noah began his new life in a brand-new world very wisely.  He had a worship and devotional time!  It was a time to praise and thank God for His faithfulness.  And perhaps he needed God to assure him that things would be better in the future.  Noah and his family had just “ridden out” the storm, and now it was time to move on with their lives.

After a cataclysmic event in your life, it helps to reestablish your devotional life.  It’s more important than ever to listen for God’s “never again” and start looking for rainbows.  Spend time reading the promises of God in the Bible.  Underline them if it helps.

But what exactly can we be sure about?  God promises that sin need never again control us (Rom. 8:9-11).  He promises that we need not be afraid ever again (Jn. 14:27).  He promises that His peace will guard our hearts and minds (Phil. 4:7).  He promises that we need never be ignorant of His will, for His Word will be a “lamp” and “light” to our path (Ps. 119:105).  He promises that we need never again be defeated Christians (Rom. 8:37).  As we read our Bibles, God’s rainbows color our perspective.  Be encouraged!  God’s promises never fail.


Lord, thank You for interceding in my life time and time again, showing me what a faithful God You are.  Bring these memories to my mind to remind me to put my trust in You always.  Let Your promises stand out to me as I read Your Word, encouraging me to color my life’s perspective with them.  Amen. 


We are conditioned to pursue our own happiness, relentlessly reaching for more. But, God would be delighted to see us choose contentment! more
