God fulfills His promises. If I’ve seen it once, I’ve seen it a hundred times. The faithfulness of God to fulfill what He has promised is an absolute guarantee, and I’ve personally experienced it more times than I can count.
I am human, and I am tempted to doubt. When you are praying for things for long periods of time, you just need those reminders. Whether that’s Scripture verses, sunsets, or stories of God’s faithfulness, etc. But nothing reminds me of God’s faithfulness to keep His promises like a rainbow. It doesn’t have to be a large rainbow. It doesn’t have to be a double rainbow. It doesn’t even have to be an actual rainbow.
I have talked about this on my social media more than once. I believe that God is a very personal God who speaks to me in any way He wants. I also on the other hand don’t believe in coincidences. So if I’m driving down the interstate on a perfectly sunny day and see the smallest but most vibrant strip of rainbow colors cast along a small portion of clouds, I just know down deep in my soul that it was for me.
God proclaims His faithfulness to us. I didn’t see it just once. I saw it twice in a matter of a an hour or so. It wasn’t raining. I wasn’t in some emotional state. I just felt an assurance. A confirmation of His promise.
“Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.” Joshua 21:45
“Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.” Romans 4:20-21
“Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23
“Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill his promises to her!” Luke 1:45
Through the things I endured earlier this year, it was hard to see anything for the fog. I was operating in survival mode. God pursued me in the struggle. He continued to show me reminders of His faithfulness. I see these as confirmation of His promise to bring good and healing from brokenness, to bring Himself ultimate glory, and to make beautiful what was once ashes.
I can hold onto this hope. This hope is a guarantee. He does not fail us. Not ever. God is so kind to remind me through these glimpses of rainbows. Now I am always looking for them. Because I know He wants me to live in constant faith that He fulfills His promises.
