rainbow beauty

This morning, as I stepped out the front door of my house, I saw a rainbow. Although Iíve seen a few during my brief sojourn on our beautiful earth, today was different. This time I chose to marvel with childlike awe. Forgive me for being a just a little paranoid but I fear for our generation. Weíve forgotten how to marvel at natureís beauty. Science has explained everything or so it seems.
I meanÖitís just a rainbow; whatís the big deal? A ray of sunlight gets split through a drop of water and itís separated into seven partsÖIím not sure I remember me physics too well, but guess what: I donít think I want to. Because today, Iíve chosen to adore Godís wisdom, to marvel at beauty in His creation.
The rainbow reminds God of His mercy. Itís hard for God to let go of His justice, but His mercy is probably more difficult for God to let go of.
However I marvel today because the rainbow reminds me of something else. It reminds me of a quest. Legend tells us that, at the end of the rainbow is a chest of treasures and Gold. But if you walk along the path of the rainbow, and you keep walking youíll never get to the end. The Holy Spirit reminded me of something sweeter than the rainbow. Like the rainbowís quest it never ends. Iím talking of the pursuit of knowing God intimately. To know Him, to discover His heart and to rest on the Masterís bosom intimately. As we draw closer to God we marvel at His beauty, His splendour and His mercy. With each step closer our awe of God increases enormously, our spirit man becomes stronger and our flesh takes a beating. And like the rainbow we never seem to get to the end of our pursuit. As each page turns and as the chapters unfold the Lord reveals more of himself. When we think we really know him, He reveals another side of his nature. Thatís why the psalmistís desire was to dwell in his house all the days of his life, to behold the beauty of the Fatherís holiness. Thereís more of God you and I can see and experience, if only we desireÖif only we keep on walking along the path of the rainbow. One day weíll see him face to face and kiss His face, but for now letís keep on walkingÖ


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
