Seeing God’s Promises in Turbulent Places

“For all of God’s promises have been fulfilled in him.
That is why we say
when we give glory to God through Christ.”
1 Corinthians 1:20 New Living Translation

Rainbows appear in some of the most interesting places as is obvious from this picture.

Fish Creek Falls, Steamboat, Colorado

Fish Creek Falls, Steamboat, Colorado

The sun shone on this waterfall even though it wasn’t raining on this mid-June day. This rainbow appeared because of heavy snow in the Mt. Zirkel wilderness area and the higher than normal melt off.

Fish Creek Falls was a flood of water.

In in the midst of the turbulence was this reminder of God’s promises. Even though there is a scientific explanation for rainbows, they remind us of God’s promises.

We might want to shout “Amen” to the glory of God when we take in the majesty of Fish Creek Falls, yet this rainbow produced by the abundance of water doesn’t appear unless there’s violence.

Even when you and I struggle with the tumult of life, God allows us to see his promises and to know that all of his promises find their “Amen” in Jesus Christ.

May you see God’s rainbow today as you look to Christ in the midst of your life’s turbulence.

    Thanks for your faithfulness in encouraging us. I don’t say it enough to you or to God. I needed that today. It’s not that anything is particularly wrong, it is just a challenge/battle to keep my eyes where they belong and not try to fight tomorrow’s battles today. I don’t have God’s Grace for those yet. I have Him with me today making rainbows to remind me He will be with me tomorrow, too.

      Penny I like how you said that it is a struggle to keep your eyes where they belong and “not try to fight tomorrow’s battles today.” I wonder how many of us find this a battle in our lives. I know that I do. God bless you.

        Thanks. May we have Victory in today’s battles! May we know our part and leave the rest to Lord of Hosts. If you have any other insights into spiritual warfare I’d appreciate your sharing them.
