The rainbow of promise

With the recent buzz regarding the rainbow banner and the Court’s ruling, we need to be reminded of something greater. What is that? God’s promises of course, and the fact that His word is good.

Man’s plans of mischief have been around since time began, and God has proven to be the only constant in a world of change. The times and seasons belong to Him, and His handiwork is seen daily, while men sweat endlessly erecting monuments unto themselves, which will always crumble down the road.

God’s rainbow requires no effort and causes no sweat; it is an eternal testament to heaven itself and the veracity of God’s very word.

The post here ‘the rainbow of promise,’ is a reblog written over a year ago, and could have been said this morning.   Also, look at https://insanitybytes2.wordpress.com/2015/06/27/somewhere-over-the-rainbow/   and notice that her post is all truth from scripture. Love that.

The Lions Den

There is a sight in the heavens that is pretty much appreciated by all, and I dare say puts a smile on even the most hardened of faces, and that is the rainbow after a raining. It lasts about the length of a hailstorm, and presto, gone.

Does the Creator get the glory? Is He respected with such a dazzling display of ingenuity, color, and perfection? Most of the times not, but there always is a remnant who sees with faith, and bows the knee to God and His eternal promises.

    It’s sad that this beautiful symbol of God’s promise to us has been used to vilify behavior that He abhors. We need to remain rooted in God’s promise and hold Him to His Word.

  2. Well said. What a timely post from last year, no less. Perfect.

    I really liked this, “His restraint is remarkable, and any man with an ounce of reason and spiritual capacity should jump on the ark of safety and agree as to his sinner-ship.” Yes, jump aboard! The Captain is awesome and it sure does beat drowning 😉

      ‘The Captain of our soul,’ indeed. The one who owns the compass could never steer us in a wrong direction. Kind of helpful in the occasional fog of life.

      Ya know, ib22, I do not underestimate the worth of believers comments; one never knows when the answer to prayer is staring you in the face.

      We ask for wisdom, and duh, there it is 😉 But drowning? Ha, He holds us fast.
