And God said, … “I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.”
Does it infuriate you that leaders in our country decided to distinguish June as Gay Pride Month? Does it grieve you to watch once-faithful churches sell out to the LGBTQ+ agenda, draping their front lawns in propagandist banners? While I’ve definitely found it revolting to watch, to the devil’s chagrin, I’ve also found in it a wonderful illustration of God’s faithfulness. Because after another month littered by blatant desecrations of God’s order, we’re still here. Seriously: have you considered that the main reason God hasn’t flooded our halls and institutions and boardrooms yet isn’t because America is more righteous than Noah’s society, but because He’s good for His word? Foolish men keep showing off their true colors by prodding God with their fists and taunting Him with their words and spiting Him with their flags, but He shows His true colors in response. Seven colors, in fact—the number of divine perfection—shimmering in the heavens with red-orange-yellow-green-blue-indigo-violet bows of integrity.
Friend, when you see a rainbow today, take it for what it truly is: a sign of God’s longsuffering mercy toward rebellious people like you.
