“For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you. Isaiah 54:10 (ESV)
These words although written by the psalmist are the Words of the LORD God. We have assurance that even when it seems like everything in our world is crashing down around us like a massive earthquake, that our Father God’s love will not fail and our promise of peace remains firmly in place. When we look at the mountains and hills we usually think of them as having been there a long time in our time frame. We don’t usually think of them as something apt to change very soon. And all that is true because of the way God created them. But even they can be moved. If the earth shakes enough. We are reminded that even in that extreme circumstance, God Himself is also here and he has been here forever – long before the mountains. He cannot be shaken and His love and his promises do not change. We can depend on His love no matter what happens in and to this world. We can trust God’s love no matter what happens in our lives. He will always love us and He will always keep his covenant of peace. Thank God today for never changing.
