Good morning! Today’s post just arrived in my head and is now transferring to the screen of my laptop.
In my Bible, when I come across the word, “covenant,” in the context of God’s covenants He made with man, I color it yellow and put a red box around it. That way, when I’m reading, it stands out and draws attention to itself. The more I read and mark that word, the more I see it throughout my Bible.
This morning, while taking Beans out for her morning constitutional, I was drawn to two trees in our backyard that are the most vibrant yellow I have ever seen! They practically glow in the dark, the yellow is so powerful.
Today, I decided to get a little closer and really appreciate the leaves and to my surprise, almost all the leaves have a brush or sprinkle of red on them! Because I mark covenant the way I do, it instantly reminded me of God’s covenant, especially the New Covenant fulfilled in Jesus Christ.
I was amazed with a fresh reminder from nature of God’s lovingkindness towards me through His indescribable gift of redemption through the blood of Jesus.
Yellow and red. Just two colors, but two colors that mean much to me when I see God’s covenant throughout Scripture.
