A  vow  is a covenant made between two  parties. God  made a vow to mankind never to destroy  the earth with floods and this is symbolised by the rainbow. Ecclessiastes 5:5 says  it is better not to vow than to make  a vow and not pay it. Judges 11:30 talks about  Jephthah  how he made a vow to God that in case God would grant  Israel victory over the Ammonites, he would offer  the first thing that would come out of his house on his return home. He returns  and the first person to come out of the house was his only daughter. Rather sad, but he fulfilled his vow to God. A vow attracts opposition  which God uses to prove our faithfulness to him. Similary to the wedding vows couples make,there will be difficult times in your marriage just for  proof of your loyalty to God and your partner.
