No, it wasn't a bird, it wasn't a plane, nor was it Superman. It was Abba, father, and Jesus my Savior; with arms stretched out wide in that age old promise. The greatest hero, this world had ever known: the only one to sacrifice his very life, for mine, and yours, and every sinner in between. He was thinking of us. He knew we needed a reminder that we are just sojourning here
Our country and our world is in such turmoil. Need I quote the headlines? Need I quote the scriptures that foretold this? But, in the midst of all of that mess is a reminder that could only come from the one who created us: a reminder of the promise made to Noah and his family in Genesis.
That of course only reminds me of all the His other promises. I was literally in awe when I saw these rainbows. Yes, there were two rainbows. I felt like I needed to get out of my car and lay prostrate before the God of the universe. I felt kinda like Ezekiel did here: As the appearance of the rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the appearance of the surrounding radiance. Such was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell on my face and heard a voice speaking. (Ezekiel 1:28)
Ya'll these were no ordinary rainbows. I feel like Charlotte did in Charlotte's Web, but these were no ordinary rainbows. They were RADIANT. They glowed. I know scientists will have their theories and hypotheses about why these rainbows were so very RADIANT, but I think "there's only one thing comes to mind, there's only one thing to describe. . ."
When I finally collected myself, I called home to tell the kids to look outside. I don't even think they could understand much of what I was saying; I sounded like a blubbering fool. I was awestruck. I was praising God and trying to explain what was going on to Dominic. Now that I think about, I'm so glad that was not recorded. On the other hand, I know that there are people who saw the same thing I did, and who did not at all think of the Sovereign God. That just means we have to introduce them to Him.
Have a divinely ordained weekend.
