God’s Rainbow –

 

Sometimes life can be overwhelming. For those times … you need a little Rainbow Faith.

The Rainbow ~ a symbol of one of God’s many promises / Faith is indeed ~ the courage to trust in His promises.

Most importantly, the rainbow in Noah is a sign of God’s covenant with humanity: “I now establish my covenant with you and your offspring to come, and with every living thing … Never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth” (Genesis 9:8-11).

We tend to forget that this covenant was established not only between God and Noah, but with all future generations. We, as God’s creations, are required to do our part to keep the covenant alive and to work for a better, more peaceful world.

Regrettably, peace does not appear as spontaneously as a colorful bow in the sky follows the rain. Individuals and governments must constantly strive to achieve it. And when peace happens, its presence reveals itself less tellingly in headlines, treaties and handshakes than in small, everyday events that signify a return to normalcy.
