God makes promises with several key people in the Bible that lead to great plans, Abraham for example had his promise ultimately fulfilled in Jesus. He makes other promises which have less obvious downstream effects but change the lives of certain individuals very profoundly. But there is one promise God made that is inescapable, even to mindless animals and lifeless matter.

I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.

Genesis 9:13

A covenant of protection sealed with a rainbow between God and the whole planet. Next time you feel left out of God’s promises and gifts, just remember that he made one promise you have to leave the world to get away from.
