Just a Reminder...

          Rainbows are beautiful, even breathtaking at times.  I don't get to see a whole lot of "good" ones where I live (so, no, the picture is not mine), but I've seen enough.  I never really thought about what a rainbow was - that is, scientifically - until a few days ago.  Ponder this:
          When light passes through water droplets at a specific angle (44degrees, if I'm not mistaken), that water droplet can become a prism, which, in layman's terms, means that the light bounces around inside a reflective surface in such a way that the light rays are broken up, creating visible colors.  Imagining this little miracle happening in millions of water droplets at the same time is incredible, but God doesn't leave it there!  As the angle changes just slightly by distance, the rays are broken differently, revealing different colors in the spectrum!  So now we have millions upon millions of little tiny water drops with light bouncing around inside of them making the same colors in the same order every single time!  And God made all of this, created this wonder of nature, for the sole purpose of reminding a stubborn and rebellious race that He would never destroy the Earth by flood again.  Can you imagine that?  God made a promise, and God always keeps His promises; yet just for fun, He created a whole new phenomenon of nature just for the fun of it as a reminder of that promise.  Now, thousands of years later, God is still reminding us that His Word is true, and His statutes are sure.  That, my friends, is a God that you can trust.  That is a God of indescribable wonder.
           Let's worship Him together!
