Monday Morning Devo - The Edge of the Storm, Part 1

And I will establish My covenant with you: Neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth." And God said, "This is the token of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between Me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud." Genesis 9:11-14, NKJV

A few years back, I was flying into Sacramento at the end of a storm. As the plane circled the city at a nearly perpendicular angle, I looked out my window to see a full rainbow, 360 degrees. I wished for my camera, but I had packed it in my suitcase.

Being in a landing plane during a storm can be a little worrisome, but it was like God was promising the end of the storm. There have been other times when a rainbow reminded me that a storm wouldn't last forever, but that time was perhaps the most outstanding in my memory.

Storms of life don't last forever either. No person--not even a Christian--lives forever on this earth, and it's a storm of one sort or another that carries them into the arms of God. A storm for those of us waiting behind--but a rainbow for them.

Needless to say, our plane landed safely with hardly a jiggle. And I don't have any doubt that when my final flight lands, it will also be without a jiggle. You see, I know the pilot personally.

Father God, I'm so glad You are my Pilot. I know You are capable of seeing me through any storm. Remind me to watch for Your rainbow when the clouds seem darkest. Thank You, Lord.


  1. Amen! Great message, Anne. It's amazing how sometimes we forget the storm does end, especially when we are in the midst of it.

    1. Yes it does--and strangely enough, sometimes the storm is at its worst just before the end of it.
