Through Noah, God established a covenant with the whole earth. The promise made to Noah, extended not only to his family and his seed, but to “every living creature that is with you.” (Gen. 9.10) As a token of His promise, God set a rainbow in the cloud. What are we reminded of when we see the rainbow? Not only that God has promised not to destroy the earth with a flood anymore, but especially that God looks upon the “bow in the cloud” and remembers. It is a reminder of God’s faithfulness to His covenant promises.
