Rainbow Covenant

Where I live, there are few threats but lots of rain. However, on yesterday, as the sun was anticipating its setting, there was a brief threat of rain that quickly faded. As I was getting something from my car, I noticed raindrops on my windshield. I mentally began to expect and prepare for rain which never came, and I was forced to refrain. This was the 'rare threat' I spoke of earlier. Shortly thereafter, there appeared a rainbow in the Eastern sky. It's been at least three to four years since I saw a rainbow. I have seen double rainbows that are so beautiful and stunning. I think that all rainbows are beautiful, but not all are stunning. This one was far from stunning. But it was speaking.* Most of us never get to see 'a full circle rainbow' because we are on the ground which limits us to a 'half circle'. Notwithstanding, we never cease to enjoy those seven colors making up the rainbow. Blue, green, indigo, orange, red, violet, and yellow. What we often miss or forget is the real reason that rainbows exist. I don't mean the scientific process that has to take place before rainbows can form. God Himself, the creator of the universe, has informed us clearly the real and simple reason for them. God made a covenant with all mankind that He will never again destroy the earth by water or a flood. When we see the rainbow, God wants us to remember His promise. We are reminded that He can be trusted. 080422PS *Genesis 9:8-17
