Oroville Dam Rainbow of Promise

Broken Oroville Dam Spillway


Many during a crisis fail to keep their eyes upon Jesus and they lose the peace He has promised. Here is an encouraging photo of the tumultuous water crashing down the injured spillway. While it is indicative of both the large amount of water and the power the falling water has, there is the reminder of the promises of God.

We remember the thoughtfulness of our God when he gave us the rainbow of promise just after the world-wide flood that destroyed all of the unrepentant sinners who lived on the face of the earth at that time. Yes, it was not a promise of no more floods, but that there would never be one of such a magnitude. The encouragement God has given in this picture is not that there will not be a flood, but that He is in absolute control, and that what ever happens will be for the good of all who love Him and keep His commandments. The wise will understand.
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.
