New International Version (NIV)
13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
All throughout the earth God gives us visual reminders. My personal favorite: The Rainbow
Filled with all the colors visible to the human eye it is a constant reminder of God’s promises to human kind, and the beauty of his creation and awesome power.
When God makes promises, we see that he gives us something to not only look forward to, a dream, a passion, but he gives us an image to look at.
For Abraham he gave the stars and the sand. During those cloudy nights he looked at the billion upon trillions of grownups beads of sand below his feet, and when he was far from home, he looked at the shining silhouettes of stars above, blown into assistance by the very creator himself!
You see, now is the time to have a dominant image for the promises God has made you! Weather it be a simply Rubbermaid on your wrist, reminding of the words he spoke, or posters of people all over your walls!
I DON’T CARE!
Now is the time to believe God for his promises, one rainbow, one visual, and one hope, at a time.
