A MOONBOW: Hope in the Dark; Promise in the Night

Updated: Apr 1, 2020

Have you ever seen a moonbow? Have you ever even heard of one?

A moonbow is a rainbow produced by moonlight rather than sunlight. It is a rare occurrence that takes place as light is reflected off of the moon.




I have had the privilege of seeing a moonbow only once in my lifetime while vacationing in Maui, Hawaii.

On the first night of our anniversary trip, storms rolled in. While my hubby and I were having dinner that evening in a restaurant our server began telling us about a rare phenomenon taking place at this very moment. We quickly rushed outside to look to the night sky and seek it out for ourselves.


The sight of glorious light hovering over a dark sea was truly one of God’s marvelous wonders to witness and behold!

A few nights ago, God reminded me of this magnificent moment in time.

He began to speak to my heart and reassure me that:


In the midst of this storm and dark night that is upon us, HOPE remains and LIGHT is still evident and present to all who SEEK it out and LOOK upon it.

Jesus is still the LIGHT of the world and HIS PROMISES remain even in the darkest night and strongest storm.


And God said to Noah, “This [rainbow] is the sign of the covenant (solemn pledge, binding agreement) which I have established between Me and all living things on the earth.”

{Genesis 9:17 AMP}

God said to Noah, “This is the special thing to see because of the agreement I have made between Me and all flesh upon the earth.”

{Genesis 9:17 NLV}

In this moment of time, the world is struck by storm and I believe He brought this to my attention for a very specific purpose:

To remind us of His covenant promises and to offer His people HOPE!

Look Up to Heaven and BEHOLD (see, observe, gaze upon, marvel at- with your own eyes) the beauty and wonders of God in this very moment!

Behold in the Bible means- “To look; to direct the eyes to an object” “To hold”


We are to Look to God in this storm and Hold on tight to what He has spoken to be true and eternal- His promises to us!

Dark Times call for us to Behold God’s Promises like never before.

Therefore, we must seek them out in Scripture, bind them around our neck, and hold them tightly to our heart.

Just as a moonbow is a rare observation, in dark days, His promises can be harder to see and more difficult to believe. But trust in the Lord and look to His Light.

Seek to Behold His Truth.

  • Hold on to God’s promise that He would never again send a flood to destroy the earth and everyone in it.

  • Hold on to who God is when we are afraid.

  • Hold on to who we are to Him when we doubt.

  • Hold on to what He promises to do and what we can expect in days to come.


And let go of the world’s troubles- fear, insecurity, and worry.

Rest assured. His word will be fulfilled.


“So also will be the word that I speak; it does not return to me unfulfilled. My word performs my purpose and fulfills the mission I sent it out to accomplish.”

{Isaiah 55:11 TPT}

God’s Word is His promise to show love, compassion, and forgiveness to all who turn to Him- look to, gaze upon, and behold Him.

His words are not empty promises. He will fulfill His purposes and make our way prosperous.

God has made many promises to believers- those who are "born again" and look to Him as Lord and Savior. And He is good and true to His word both now and forever.

Behold Him!

Look Up to His Heavenly Light!

Witness His marvelous glory SHINE through the dark of night and REVEAL brighter days to come!


In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.

{Genesis 1:1-3}


This world needs HOPE and LIGHT more than ever.

I believe we are facing a rare moment in time where we, as the Church, are being called upon to look to God so that we may reflect His Light and emit His Truth upon the world.

You were created for such a time as this!

Will you SHINE in the darkness?


Prayer:

May the Light of His Presence SHINE through you as it is REFLECTED from Him.


Song:

A moonbow, a moonbow.

Jesus wants me for a moonbow.

A moonbow, a moonbow.

I’ll be a moonbow for Him.


Poem:

Let There Be Light

Mistie House

In the Beginning

When God made all of Creation, He dispelled darkness with a spoken command.

He called out into the darkness,

“Let There be Light”

And It Was So.

When the Fall of Man came upon us, God created a Way for Us.

He called His Son to dispel the power of darkness by sending the Light to us,

So that In Him

Light could shine Through Us.

He commanded,

“Let There Be Light”

And It Was So.

In His Word, God has spoken the command for Us to dispel the darkness in this World.

He has called Us to become a New Creation

Salt and Light for our generation.

He commands,

“Let There Be Light”

And May It Be So.

In The End

God will speak the command to dispel darkness Once and For All.

He will call His Son to Reappear

And On that Day

Darkness

Will Forever

Disappear!

For the Lord God is the Light

And All will See

The Glory of God

Who gives us Light

And the Lamb

Who is the Lamp

Forever…Forever…Forevermore!!!

The command is coming,

“Let There Be Light”

And It Will Be So.


Amen.
