In the story of Noah’s Ark, we get to see God’s great faithfulness and how He longs for our hearts to wait on Him with more faith, more trust and more hope.
As the dove flew towards Noah carrying an olive branch, after days and days of waiting in hopelessness, I can only imagine how it would have been a magnificent sighting, almost like a white heart, bursting out from the skies.
And then the spectrum of colours that stretched out from one end of the sky to the other to form a rainbow — a sign of His covenant with us all, His promise and a beautiful reflection of His love.
The truth is, He comes after your heart just like the dove— with the promise of His love never leaving you, always being there for you, with hope, and everything you need in this life to overcome anything— bringing you where you are destined to be, giving you more than what you can ever imagine because His love is immeasurable!
