Devotion from Billy Graham: The Rainbow of Hope

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. – Hebrews 13:8

By Billy Graham

The Rainbow of Hope

Let me put a rainbow of hope in your heart.  It has been proved millions of times over that Jesus Christ can meet and solve the basic problems of your life. 

This is the promise of Hebrews 13:8.

The word yesterday in that verse means the past—when He was on earth.

The word today means now, the present—when He is in Heaven. 

And the word forever looks into the future—when He shall return to earth to rule and reign.

Yesterday, the past, when He was on earth—He made atonement; He forgave and covered your sin, your past. 

Today, now, in Heaven—He is an advocate, representing before God those who place their trust in Him.  He is right now willing to solve your problems, lift your burdens, wipe the tears away, and bring joy, peace, and satisfaction such as you have never known. 

Tomorrow, in the future—He will return to be King of kings and Lord of lords.

Other things may change, but Christ will never change. 

We are living in an age of grace in which God promises that whosoever will may come and receive His Son.

When this age of grace ends, the judgment of God will strike and the world will suffer from the judgment hand of God.

But today I can offer you an unchanging Christ who can forgive your past sin, lift your present burdens, and give you hope for the future.  He will take your sins and bury them in the depths of the sea. 

Prayer for the Day: Thank you, Lord Jesus, for providing forgiveness for my past, respite from today’s burdens, and hope for all of my tomorrows, Help me to share Your hope with those around me. 

Daily meditation from Billy Graham’s book, “Alone with the Savior”.

  1. I want to thank God for giving me the freedom to talk to other people about Jesus. And how he will help them thru. Anything if they trust and believe in him.

  2. Thank you for the inspiring words from our Holy Bible. I had just made a statement about tomorrow is gone, yesterday may not come, but today is our present. This says it the true way…

  3. Just celebrated my 90th birthday. Shirley, my wife of 63 years, will celebrate her 867th birthday on July 25th. We were wondering the date of Dr. Graham’s birthday? Thanks for all you are doing for Jesus and looking for His return soon to bring our Salvation and Immortality.
