I was cruising along the open highway after a gentle summer rain, and I was enjoying the journey. Suddenly, I saw a masterpiece in the sky — a rare triple rainbow. The huge, spectacular arc was flanked by another adjacent band of color. With tears in my eyes and hands on the steering wheel, I honked the horn repeatedly to celebrate God’s amazing creation!
Rainbows turn my heart to the Creator in a unique way. They remind me of His goodness and His promises. They remind me that He is still the unchanged, faithful God. Faithful is not a common word these days. It’s more typical to hear stories of the unfaithful. Definitions of faithful include:
- Devotion to duty
- Loyalty to vows
- Constant, not fickle
“Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love Him and keep His commandments to a thousand generations.” Deuteronomy 7:9
This Bible verse reminds me that –unlike people– God is ever faithful. I see His unchanging love as recorded in the Bible. His faithful words and actions woo me to love Him and keep His commandments. May they also summon me to reflect my Creator as I grow in faithfulness towards God and others.
“The permanence of God’s character guarantees the fulfillment of his promises.” -- A.W. Pink
