As a child growing up, my parents would always call us to the window or even outside to see rainbows. There is something so magical and captivating about them. If you are a believer in God or a follower of Christ rainbows are significant.
After the flood, as recorded in the book of Genesis, God showed his mercy by saying He would never again destroy everything. He illustrated this by using the symbol of the rainbow.
My oldest son is a liver transplant recipient. Driving home, after being released from the hospital after a three weeks stay, it was pouring rain. All of a sudden two rainbows, one on top of the other, appeared right ahead of us. It was surely a moment of praising God for His mercy and goodness shown to us over the previous few weeks.
From that moment on, I have felt such a powerful connection to the Lord when I see a rainbow. Life has been difficult for me, as it is for everyone. I read a quote the other day on Pinterest that said, “My life feels like a test I didn’t study for”. How perfect, right?
We each need the mercy of the God every day~
Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Lamentations 3:22-23, New International Version (NIV)
