A Rainbow Reminds Me Of…

With major companies changing their websites and Instagram accounts to include colorful arrays, here are five things the rainbow reminds me of:

  1. Beauty – looking up after a raincloud’s passing and seeing the colors displayed vividly across the sky reminds me of God’s creative power.
  2. Eternity – seeing a complete rainbow, (for example, looking out a plane window or misting water into the air on a sunny day) reveals a complete circle. With no beginning or end, it reminds me of God’s eternal nature- The Alpha and Omega (Revelation 1:8).
  3. Diversity – God could have made us colorblind, with one skin tone; but He created different races with the ability to see color (except for that one kid I knew in school who never wore the same color socks).
  4. Glory – Ezekiel and John both describe the majestic glory of God manifested in many ways, and among them is a brilliant rainbow, “And He who sat there was like jasper and a sardius stone in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne , in appearance like an emerald.” – Revelation 4:3 NKJV
  5. Salvation – After the Great Flood, God placed a rainbow in the sky as a covenant with mankind to never destroy the earth with water again (Genesis 9:8-17). It’s a steady reminder of the story of Noah; that God is holy and righteous, cannot tolerate sin, and has provided an escape from eternal destruction for anyone who fears Him and places their faith in Christ (Heb. 11:7).

God owns the rainbows; we would all do well to think of Him when we see one.

    it grieves me that the rainbow has become part of the pride movement.. thank the Lord that my granddaughter was taught from toddler the line from a sunday school song called Mr. Noah Built An Ark that goes “whenever you see a rainbow remember God is love” but I changed it to “God loves you.”
