STOP AND THINK – If you want to enjoy the rainbow, be prepared to endure the storm. (Warren Wiersbe, Pastor and author)

“What a beautiful rainbow!” we might exclaim when we see that multi-colored arc in the sky. Of course, it’s the result of sunshine breaking through the moisture in the air. Quite often, as in the case of Noah and the great flood recorded in the Bible, the rainbow appears after a great storm. To see the bow, we must have the rain, but it brings a promise of hope.

Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth. (Genesis 9:16)
