"Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and
remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living
creatures of every kind on the earth."
-- Genesis 9:16
I don't know about you, but I'm a very visual person. I truly
appreciate the way God made the world with all its variety, color,
and rich diversity. I am thankful for the way he used certain key
images in our world to remind us of his daily provision and eternal
grace. The beauty of a rainbow is not just in its wonderful colors
or in the aroma of fresh rain, but in the promise that our God has
chosen to link himself to our destiny and to involve himself in our
Almighty God, thank you for making your great promises when we
had no right to expect them, much less to demand them. Thank you
for attaching those promises to things in my everyday world so that
I can be reminded of your constant and watchful care. In Jesus'
name I pray. Amen.
