“God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the waters receded” (Genesis 8:1 NIV).
As revealed in this wonderful verse, when God remembers, things get done! He sent a wind—maybe even the wind of His Spirit—to cause the flood waters to recede. Then, He gave His covenant promise to Noah about the future and established it with a rainbow. He set the precedent that remains for us today. We, too, can be sure that God remembers us as we look expectantly for His promise to give us hope with a future and a rainbow after the rain.
I thought the painting was finished when someone suggested that I add some birds to the composition. As I painted the birds, I prayerfully considered their meaning. I realized the birds and the number of them represented grace and double restoration. The very real message in this finishing touch on “Covenant” reminds us that He is able and faithful to restore even double for our trouble after the rain because He is God our Father who loves and remembers us. (See Zechariah 9:12 NKJV)
