Rainbows. A picture of God’s promises to us. But most recently, a picture of how much we’ve strayed from God’s plan for us.

Genesis 9:13

I have set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.

Rainbows bring me so much joy. Every time I see them, I’m reminded of God’s love for me and the priceless gift that he’s given me (Jesus).

But recently, I can’t draw or admire a rainbow without seeming like I’m supporting a cause that I don’t. I can’t wear a rainbow t-shirt or rainbow converse without being stopped and admired for supporting something I don’t support.

What we’ve done with rainbows is almost laughing at God.

We take God’s precious promise to us and put it on flags, signs, shirts, and everything we can imagine. But not as a reminder of his love- oh, no! As a reminder of our rebellion toward him. We say “Oh, that priceless gift you’ve given us? Yeah, I love it! I use it to proclaim something that you hate.”

But you know something? In a way, what we’ve done with rainbows can almost be good. Every time we use a rainbow to support something bad, we’re also reminded of God’s promises.

He will never leave or us or forsake us. (Deuteronomy 31:6)

Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. (John 14:6)

The Lord will fight for you. (Exodus 14:14)

If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. (John 8:36)

The Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. (Joshua 1:9)

God works all things for good for those who love him. (Romans 8:28)

And most importantly-

God so loved the world that he gave his only son so that whoever believes in him will not perish but but have eternal life. (John 3:16)

So next time you see a rainbow or even a rainbow flag, remember God’s promises.

Sorry for the short post, but this was on my heart ❤

  1. Even though you didn’t mention one word about WHAT the world has used rainbows for, I totally understand where you come from! You’re a really good writer that way :)) we must stand firm in the faith and not be influenced by external sources!

    1. Thanks! I’m a little confused as to what you mean- do you mean that you don’t believe it’s a bad thing, or just that it’s okay to use rainbows?

      1. Well, I’m personally afraid of appearing to represent something I believe is wrong (rainbows are the “symbol”, i guess, for lgtb pride, which I do not support). Do you feel the same way about that, or not? I’d love to hear what you believe! 💕

  2. Hi! (totally not stalking people’s blogs to try to find new people to follow lol) I completely agree with this!! Breaks my heart to see how the rainbow has been thrown all over to symbol acts of rebellion and things I do not support rather than God’s natural creation. This is important to get across though!!
