Wednesday's Word

I was inspired for today's word on my way to work. I actually saw one. Today's word is "rainbow."

Actual meaning - an arc of colored light in the sky caused by refraction of the sun's rays by rain

Meaning to me - A reflection of God's promises to us that hold true even through the storms of our life

Like I said above, I saw a rainbow this morning. It's colors were clear and beautiful. The most beautiful thing though was that the rain was still falling, but the sun was shining through making this gorgeous rainbow.
See, God is just like that. When he made the promise to Noah, he didn't promise it would never rain again. He promised that the earth would never be destroyed by rain again. I bet every time it started raining after the flood Noah would look up and see that rainbow in the sky, and he was reminded that God was faithful, and God's promises would be kept.
It's just like our lives. There are going to be rainy, stormy days, but if we look, we'll see a rainbow through the pouring rain. A gentle reminder that God is still with us. He will keep His promises to us.
And what are these promises? Here are just a few:

Matthew 28:19-20, " 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."

II Chronicles 7:14, "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."

James 4:10, "Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up."

God has promised to be with us. He's promised to hear us. And He's promised to lift us up. But did you read the first part of those verses? There are things He wants us to do, too. He wants us to follow Him. If we obey Him, we will be blessed by Him.
Noah had to build the ark to be saved from the flood. Had Noah refused to obey God, he would have died with the rest of the wicked.
If we walk away from God's commandments, we won't feel God's presence, and there will be a hindrance in our communication with God.
So follow Him today. The benefits are well worth it!

My son and daughter were baptized on the same day.
And God painted a beautiful rainbow. It was so cool.

Have a fun day!
