Genesis 9:14-15 ” Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 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.”

After the great flood, this was the covenant between God and Noah.  But it is also a covenant between all of mankind for generations to come.  It goes on to say in verse 16, “Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth.”  So the next time you notice a rainbow in the sky, stop and reflect upon what you’re seeing and what it actually stands for…a promise from God that’s eternal, everlasting, and forever.

Genesis 17:1-2 ” When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, ‘I am God Almighty; walk before Me and be blameless. I will confirm My covenant between Me and you and will greatly increase your numbers.’ “

So here we have this very old couple…the husband is 99 and his wife is 90.  At that age, it’s virtually impossible physically for that couple to conceive a child together.  Yet here in this Scripture  the Lord is promising them children…and all He asks of them is to trust and obey.  Many think at a certain age they can “retire” from doing God’s work…but God’s saying, “No way!”   There is no retirement age in God’s Kingdom…and there’s no impossibility that God can’t overcome…and all He asks of us, is to trust and obey.
