Actor and comedian Tyler Perry is not ashamed of his faith in Jesus Christ. His boldness to witness to Hollywood has inspired many over the years and his recent post on social media will make you smile.

Tyler spent his free time in church where there was comfort in peace—something he couldn’t attain in childhood. So during prayer time one day Perry found not just a connection to the Lord, but a symbol of His peace, something he experienced at church when he was younger. The Christian Post reported that on News Year’s Day Tyler was reminded of God’s promise the covenant He made in Genesis.

 “I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds. I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life.  Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth. So God said to Noah, “This is the sign of the covenant I have established between me and all life on the earth.”

Perry shared with his fans on Facebook that he was worshiping and thanking God for his provisions. “On New Year's Day, I had just finished praying and thanking God for all that He had done for me over all these years. I was so full as I came out of the room. I was thanking Him and praying for a great 2016, and then I saw this right off the balcony!!!! My prayer is that God puts a rainbow in your 2016. I hope this New Year brings you the life you've always imagined, and I pray that it carries away any and everything that will try to keep you from it. God bless!!"

Perry will be hosting a musical on Christ called the “Passion Play,” a modern-day story of the Savior on Fox in March.
