The Lord lifts us up when we let him down.

“I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth” (Genesis 9:13-17).

“Noah drank of the wine and was drunk …” (Genesis 9:21 …).

Life is full of highs and lows.

We look up at the rainbow, and we see the greatness of God’s love for us.  

We look inside ourselves, and we see how low we can sink.

When we fall down, how are we to be raised up?

Are  we to say, “Come, … let us make a name for ourselves” (Genesis 11:4)?

No! We must listen to what God says to us, “The Lord said to Abram” (Genesis 12:1).

To Abraham was to do what God told him to do, “Go”, and he was to leave it to God to fulfil his promise: “I will make your name great” (Genesis 12:1-3).

We must learn to give God all the glory, and stop trying to lift ourselves up.

Let us praise the God of grace, who lifts us up when we let him down.
