Aren't rainbows gorgeous? I love to see them, and here in Florida, we see them pretty often. Every time I see one, it reminds me of the promises of God.
Do you remember the story of the first rainbow? It's found in Genesis 9:12-16. God used the rainbow as a promise to Noah that He would never again flood the earth with water.
I just read this morning that the promises of God are based on 4 things:
- God cannot lie.
- God never forgets.
- God cannot change.
- God always accomplishes everything He has promised.

I don't know about you, but that gives me great comfort!
Did God promise to save those who called on Him for salvation? Then He will keep that promise!
Did He say that although our weeping may last through the night, joy would come in the morning? Then He will bring you joy!
Did the Lord say, "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee"? Then He will always be with you!
Our great God has filled His Word, the Bible, with many promises. And He will keep every one of them!
The next time you see a rainbow, let your heart be comforted in those gorgeous colors that remind us of God's faithfulness to keep His promises…
And you might just want to dig into your Bible to find one of those promises for yourself!
