I was driving to work the other day when I noticed a small bit of rainbow poking out between the clouds of the overcast sky. It wasn't raining; this little bit of refracted light.
Do you think that there is symbolism in rainbows -- reminders of God's promises?
How reliable are God's promises? Do we walk through life not really expecting that His promises are real? Are we surprised when we see evidence of one, like I was surprised by this tiny bit of a rainbow?
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. (Hebrews 10:23)We can hold on to our hope, for God's promises is what bridges the distance between faith and hope. His promises are reliable and truthful, because he is a faithful God.
- For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
- And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."
