Double Rainbow Meaning

    by Hazel Straub

A double rainbow lit the darkened cloudy sky. God said, “Trust me through the storm, I have you. Don’t lean on your own understanding but lean into me, as the showers refresh. Embrace my wind, it blows the mosquitos away. Know my rainbow is a double one of covenant. They witness to my faithfulness. Trust me. I bring you through the storm. I am here for you.”

  1. Hazel,
    Your message in this blog is beautiful: Lean on God . He will always see you through. This is so hard for so many people to do, I guess until they really get to know God and his promises. I like this post, especially. It is poetic.
    Betsy Borchardt

    • Betsy, thank you for your encouraging comment. It is so important to know that God is with us during the storms of life and his covenant promises are with us, no matter what happens.

  2. is this verse in the bible, if so, where?

    • Louise, this post is not a Bible verse. You can read about the covenant God made with Noah and all life on earth with the sign of the rainbow in Genesis 9:8-17. Double rainbows are a double witness of God’s promise for all generations.

  3. I saw a double rainbow today and I have been praying sooo much lately
    for financial help to pay my rent. I told God, it’s ok, you don’t need to give
    me a sign…I know you are here and will help me and my husband. At 3:08p.m. I was closing my bedroom window and started shouting to my husband, LOOK, LOOK!! A DOUBLE RAINBOW! It lasted for around 5 minutes. I Feel so happy right now, I know soon we will find a way to pay our rent. GOD IS REAL!!! Don’t ever give up on GOD! You will find HIM/HER!!

    • Thank you Jessica for sharing. God is our Good Shepherd and has promised that we will not want or lack when we rely on him. He is so good to give us a sign of confirmation. I wrote the post after seeing the double rainbow when I needed reassurance. He is so good to us!

  4. As i was driving home from church 1-6-13 on the freeway i spotted a rainbow also bright. Not only one but two. It was a Blessing to my soul. I cant get of the amament, still tryn to get a meaning behind it if any.

    • Myshele,, the double rainbow is God’s assurance to you that he will never leave or forsake you and that he is with you in covenant. The second rainbow is his witness that it is so. No matter what he loves and cares for you. Enjoy him and delight that he put the double rainbow in your path.

  5. This is my first visit on this blog and I must say “awesome and inspiring.” The double rainbow lesson and along with so many others spoke to my life giving situation tonight. Praise God for He is always present!

    • Thanks for visiting Pure Glory and taking the tim to comment. I’m glad to hear that the double rainbow post along others spoke to you. God is present and always speaking. Praise God! Thank visiting and please return.

  6. This morning after my Yoga class I saw a beautiful rainbow and I could not take my eyes of of it. The closer I got to my car I saw 2…a Double Rainbow. I grabbed my phone and snapped a picture. It was so beautiful and I feel something touched my soul. I could not shake that it meant something so I Googled Double rainbow meaning and I am glad to have found your page.

  8. Thank you for having this post. Where I live there was a fire at some apartments near me. A seven year old girl lousy everything in the fire and her birthday is tomorrow. I am making a cake for her in the shape of a rainbow to offer some sort of hope. I can now pass these words on to her and her family about this being Gods promise to be with then during their storm.

    • You are welcome. God is there for the seven year old girl and your are his ambassador! It is during the storm, that we realize how much he is there for us. So glad you took the time to share.

  9. I feel blessed by reading your thoughts on rainbows. They have long been special for me too. Signs of God’s love. Thanks.

    • You are welcome. I saw the double rainbow when I was going through a difficult time. God’s reassurance to me in the double rainbow and his letting me know he cared touched me deeply.

  10. Reblogged this on The Matter of Life and Death.

    • Thank you. God bless and keep you.

  11. Somewhere in my picture archive I have a photo I took of layers of rainbows. I’d never seen anything like it. There must have been at least seven of them! Twice I’ve seen rainbows meet the ground and roll out toward me like a carpet. My grandkids were with me the second time.

    I LOVE RAINBOWS. No doubt, God needs those daily reminders of why He lets life go on!

    • Happy Birthday! God is reassuring you of his love and commitment to you. I’m glad to know that my post touched and comforted you.

  16. I have been having a crises of faith for some time now feeling as though God abandoned me. Today I saw a double rainbow and while searching for some common meaning behind it I came across your page. I am glad that I did. After reading your post I feel like He has sent me a sign letting me know that He never forgot me and that He has always and will always love me, even in what I interpret as His silence. Thank you, my heart is lighter now with renewed hope.

    • Brigette,

      God loves you so much! It’s wonderful you saw a double rainbow know he never forgets you. So glad my post made a difference to you! 🙂

  17. Good Morning All,
    God is sooooo good!!! Today 9/26/13 there was a double rainbow.. The kids here at school spotted it from the cafeteria at breakfast time. One little girl said “GOD is watching.”

    • Yes, God is good! Thank you for sharing how the double rainbow impacted the kids at school. How special!

  18. Reblogged this on Bullying Prevention.

  19. After coming across a double rainbow this afternoon, i knew it was a sign of someone was looking after us, our dogs is extremely poor after having a major op on his spine and disc in his back and has put us with a huge bill. I know god is looking after him and me and our family it was a sure sign he is with us when we need him.

    • i meant to say poorly.

    • Yes, no matter what we or the ones we love are going through, God is with us and for us. He loves to give reminders like double rainbows to let us know how much he loves and cares for us. 🙂

  20. This post is truly a blessing to me. I’ve seen two round rainbows recently and everyday thereafter I see rainbows in my home. There’s a rainbow on my calculator daily and last week there was one on my kitchen cabinet that looked like it was glowing like a flame. I know that God is with me through the storms! I took pictures of all of them however, the round rainbows I couldn’t capture because I was driving.

    • Miranda, thank you for letting me know my post was a blessing to you. God is really letting you know that he is with you through the storms of life! How special.

  21. I saw a rainbow last year on Easter Sunday. Last Saturday evening, a double rainbow appeared in the sky in front of our house. I have been spiritually down for some months now and was extremely fed-up with God’s silence on Friday night. Seeing the double rainbow was a first in my life and also a first in front of our house. I was so excited. I am sure its a message from God and I look forward to finding the answers someday…….

    • WLoo, God wants you to know that he hasn’t forgotten you and is with you. The rainbow stands for God’s covenant with man after the flood that destroyed and cleansed the world. When God makes a covenant he doesn’t break it. A double rainbow is a special sign to you that he has not forgotten you and your home in which you dwell. Even though you haven’t heard him lately he gave you a double sign, a double witness that he loves you and hasn’t forgotten you. He remembers your name and where you live and wants you to know he loves you no matter how you might feel. It’s a new day and God’s favor is with you!

  22. How awesome we are reminded by God of His promises! May I reblog?

  30. I needed to be uplifted today. I have recently been the victim of cruel gossip, and my heart is broken because it was a dear friend that is spreading this poison. Thanks for this double rainbow meaning. It was exactly the words my soul needed to hear.

    I do set my rainbow in the cloud and it shall be as a covenant between Me and the earth.
    Genesis 9:13

    • God’s covenant all blessings to you! Thank you for the reblog.

  32. I have been praying more just about different things, but I am facing an eviction, trying to look for a new job etc and I prayed to the Lord for help, and I am just walking by faith that he will provide. Today walking out the bathroom. There was a short thick line of rainbow colors on my wooden closet door it was glistening and transparent it was so beautiful. There was a little light shining through the peep hole of my front door but I’ve never seen a rainbow reflected on a wood door. I was wondering what that could mean. I am still not sure but I started smiling and filled with peace. God is Good

    • Niecy, it is yours by faith. God is with you and will never abandon you, no matter what you are facing. The rainbow encircles his throne, (Revelation 4:3) and he uses it on earth to remind you that even in the storm, he is there with you. God is speaking to you through his covenant rainbow, to let you know that you are not alone. He has heard your prayer and cry for help and is using his rainbow to remind you, Niecy, that he is your shelter and refuge. God fights your battles. He has provision for you in the midst of your pain. His light shines through the darkness, overcomes it and gives you beauty to marvel out. Nothing is impossible when you put your faith in God!

  33. Thank you! I really needed to see this today. Today is my 41st birthday and I feel like I’ve been here over a hundred years. This morning I was blessed with a DOUBLE rainbow in the sky. I took pictures but it was so large my phone could not capture it all at once.

    • Happy Birthday Samarrah! It’s good to know that this post made a difference. The double rainbow was a birthday present from God to you, today. He never forgets you and turns the bad to good.

  34. Hazel,

    Today while in the emergency room with my mom I saw a beautiful double rainbow. I have been struggling with issues in my own life then with both my parents. Things were getting to much for me. I prayed about everything and gave it back to God. Then in the midst of the stress of another life threatening illness, I saw this beautiful rainbow. When I got home I started looking on line for Biblical meanings of a double rainbow and ran across yours. Thank you so much, it gave me much comfort to read your blog post.

    • Wendy, I’m glad my post was a comfort to you. God loves you and your parents.

  35. Thank you so much. I’m going through a rough time and I just saw a double rainbow today! Now I understand the message 🙂

    • Praise God for his glorious double portion promise and covenant and wondrous love! So good to know you are enjoying the posts! Blessings!

  49. I have been in prayer and seeking God for some time and had just recently been going through something that made me feel like the devil was attacking the flesh of my emotions. I cried out to God with so much hurt, spoken to the first lady (My Mother) and she encouraged me to continue to seek God and ask him to reveal to me what my eyes and heart can not see. Before going through what I am going through My father preached on How the devil can distract you with your emotions.(I started to find peace this morning) then to see the double rainbow today I was so amazed and needed to find a spiritual meaning to this and came across this page. TYJ this has given me so much peace and a sound mind, Thank you Thank you for such a confirmation because this storm I can’t face alone. And after asking God to give me peace, I truly know that he heard my hearts cry and he is holding me through this storm. TY for sharing

    • Praise God! He hears our cries and answers. I was going through a very difficult time when I saw that double rainbow and wrote what he told me. He is so faithful and loving. The rainbow 🌈 surrounds his throne. He will never leave or forsake us. Thank you 😊 for taking the time to comment and let me know you got peace from this post. Blessings!

  50. It definitely makes getting through those rough patches easier knowing we’re not alone.

  51. Life is so much better when God is with us! It is fun!

  52. just on a technical note about Rainbows……the colour sequence in the second rainbow is reversed.

  53. Yes you have revealed God’s Ways are marvelous. Anand Bose from Kerala

    • God is marvelous in all his ways, Anand! Thank you for stopping by.

  56. Hello Hazel and thank you for popping onto my planet and thereby introducing me to your site. What a great God we serve.

    • Hello Sir Peter! Great and mighty is the Lord God!

  57. A pencil sign, indeed!

    • God’s double rainbow showing he is there for you.

  58. Have you noticed that the colour sequence in a second rainbow is always reversed?

  59. thanks for the ‘like’ and for your up-holding faith. God is always good as you know.. may he continue to you always! Jeane

    • You’re most welcome, Jeane! Abundant blessings!

  60. I praise God that you allow yourself to be an instrument of God’s will. Your Double Rainbow post blessed my heart, reminding me of the double rainbow I saw a few months ago. I was on a long road trip and the double rainbow did not fade away quickly, but was visible for over 30 miles, reminding me of God’s covenants, grace, and faithfulness. God’s name be praised! Keep up the good work, declaring the goodness of the Lord.

    • All glory to God! The rainbow surrounds him in the throne room. It blesses me to know, Rhonda that this post on the Double Rainbow blessed your heart. I loved hearing your story about the double rainbow. I think God wants to assure of his love and care with double rainbows.

  61. I witnessed two double rainbows this summer weeks apart. Felt so blessed. I didn’t know what a double one actually meant. Now that I do I’m going to tell everyone I know!

    • Praise God! He wants to let you know he is there for you, with a double portion of blessings and walking with you!

  62. What a beautiful promise!

  63. Reblogged this on The love of God and commented:
    Where I last lived, I always knew where to find the double rainbow after rain, or a storm. Now I’m in a new dwelling, I wanted to know where to find the rainbow last week. From the colour of the clouds, I knew there had to be one somewhere! I found it: To the right of my block of flats, over the house rooftops, there they were. Two of them. We never get one any more – always two!

    • Thank you for the reblog. God is giving us double blessings that overflow us!

  64. Awesome.

  65. Thanks for your like of my 72 post; you are very kind.

    • You are welcome!

      • Thank you.

  66. There’s nothing like a double-rainbow to redirect our focus and brighten our spirits in the midst of the storms! Thank you for the reminder!

  67. Life will bring storms, big and small, but it is so comforting to know that the Lord is in control even then.

    • Yes the Lord accompanies us, when we go through storms.

  68. Thank you for these powerfully encouraging words to remind us of God’s eternal covenant. I appreciate so much your sharing.

    Thanks also for the like you posted on my blog.

    • You are welcome, Dr. J! God has an eternal covenant with us!

  69. Revisiting this post. I love the message here. It is so true.

    • So glad this post has blessed you. God is always with us, even in the storm. Blessings!

  70. I like your post God is with me in the storm. I remember the preacher talking about storms in church services. I remember thinking a storm in my life would devastate. At the time I was not over the top for Jesus, and now I know that I had a lot of growing in the word to do. The funny thing is the more that I grew in the word of God the storm did start to come. But thanks be unto God that, He had prepared me to keep my faith in Him, at times it was hard and I thought I may sink under the pressure, but I held on for dear life, and praise God through every storm I am still holding on. Thank you for the post Pure Glory.

    • God’s loving presence accopanies us and keeps us, as we go through the storm. Hisdouble rainbow reminds us of his loving covenant with us. Blessings! You are welcome!

  71. Thanks for your many likes of my posts; you are very kind.

      • Thank you. Many blessings to you, too.

  72. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  73. He is a covenant keeping God, merciful and gracious.

    • Yes God is! He loves us so much.

  74. We had this experience just yesterday, and we took pictures and took short videos with our phones. It was the most beautiful thing to see. My husband and I have so much going on right now and have been in prayer much about a lot of things and then all of a sudden this double rainbow appears right there where we live. I would love to share our pictures with you.

    • LThe rainbow is God’s symbol that surrounds him in his throne room. He loves to encourage us with double rainbows. I am sure the double rainbow photos encouraged you much.

      • It really has encouraged us at a time we needed to be encouraged!

  75. Wow this is the message for me all week. Thank you for this writing. It made my day.

    • June, so good to know that this post made your day! Blessings!

  76. What an uplifting post! Cast all your cares on him! It’s not a request, it’s not an option, its a command! Praise God!

    • Yes! God is our burden bearer. It is so much easier to walk, when we have cast all our cares on him. Hallelujah!

      • Amen!!!!!

      • 🙂
