For the second time in our ministry while on the threshold of something new, a rainbow has appeared right over the place where we were about to embark on a new journey. While unloading our belongings from the removalist truck at our new home in Cranbourne, we were once again blessed by this beautiful reminder of God's promises. Coincidence? Maybe. But I choose to believe that God is visually reminding us of the covenant we entered into as Officers and that His hand is on us as we obediently step into this new appointment. On both occasions, the rainbow has given us a tangible sense of God's presence, affirming that we are right where He wants us to be, doing exactly what He wants us to do.
In Genesis 9:13 God said, "I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth." This divine reassurance to a world that was on the threshold of a new beginning was the symbol of an everlasting covenant of new life. At the beginning of our new life in Cranbourne I am not only excited about the life ahead for us, but also for those on the threshold of new life in Christ as we live out the covenant that has led us to this new beginning. Beyond the rainbow is a land of opportunity and the promise of fullness of life just waiting to be grasped.
