Like a rainbow on a rainy day

Re: Verse reading – Ezekiel 1:28-3:4 (day one) 
“As the appearance of the rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day. . .so was the glory of the Lord.”  (1:28)  Was Ezekiel surprised to see it?  Maybe.  The previous few years had been very discouraging for the people of Judah.  They had been conquered and captured and carried away into exile.  Ezekiel, himself, had experienced the loss of his youthful dreams.  Did he ever ask, “God where are you?”  The vision that God gave him provided the answer.  God was still sovereign.  Nothing had changed.  He was seated on the throne, His glorious radiance forming a rainbow of hope.  Does God shine this confidence in your heart today?  No matter what you are facing, or what disappointments you are called to bear, can you see the Faithful and Glorious One sitting high above your circumstances, His promises still intact?  On this morning after Easter, sing with me,  “Because He lives, I can face tomorrow!”
