God gave us more than one sign of His assurance to sustain life. We usually think of the rainbow marking His promise to never again send a life-ending flood. But that is His reminder, not ours.
He did more than set the colorful bow we often see following a rainstorm.
He gave us the seasons: Spring’s fragrant budding, summer’s rich growth, autumn’s golden harvests, and winter’s snowy cloak.
The seasonal cycle reminds us of His faithfulness and assures us that we, too, will rise following our winter days to the newness of life in Christ.
“And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done.
As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
will never cease.”
—Genesis 8:21-22 (NIV)
