God's Promises




A couple of weeks ago I saw a rainbow. I've seen plenty of rainbows in my life, but this one was different. This time I didn't just see the colors and shape, I saw God's promises. Too often I think we look at things and look past their true meaning. God sent a rainbow to remind Noah of his promise to never flood the earth again. When you think about it rainbows come after the rain, even during the rain sometimes. I think God is so cool, because He knows exactly when we need to be reminded of His promises. When the sun is shining and things are great, we aren't really looking for promises. But during the rain, we are looking but cannot always see them.

I am in middle of a pretty scary season in my life. I recently found out that all the pain that I have been having for the past six months is caused my a lack of development in my shoulders. The doctor said that there are parts of my shoulders that are only as developed as a seven-year-old's. In the midst of all the pain, I lost sight of God's promises for my life. Well not so much that I forgot, but I couldn't stay focused on them. They didn't seem possible. I stopped dreaming. I started going over my list of God's promises and wanted to start crossing things out. Then I saw the rainbow. And I remembered even though things may not go as I have planned, they will go exactly as God has planned. He knows the deepest desires of my heart and I know His promises are true. I believe God promises for my life are so true and will come to be when God is ready to reveal them. Not when I feel I need to see them or have them. Not when I think time's running out.

"What's more, I am with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. One day I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised you." Genesis 28:15 (New Living Translation)

So the next time you see a rainbow, take a moment and remember God's promises.
