“Though the mountains move and the hills shake, my love will not removed from you and my covenant of peace will not be shaken,” says your compassionate Lord. Isaiah 54:10
What is God telling us here? He is telling us that even the incredible amount of force and power that is required to move a mountain and shake a hill cannot take his love away from you. We all know that the only way for mountains to move and for hills to shake, apart from God, is an earthquake. Which involves the shifting of the earth’s tectonic plates. Which causes the ground to shake and if violent enough to change the entire landscape of an area. And more importantly to ancient people and even to some of us still today, these natural disasters are seen as God’s anger and wrath being poured down on us for whatever sins that we have committed; thus proving to them that God is not a loving God, but is instead a wrathful and vindictive God who is only out to smite those who are not toeing his line. This verse is God’s response to these thoughts and ideas that have been planted in your mind by the devil. It is God telling you that all the things that happen to shake what seems to be unshakable are not God pouring out his vengeance and wrath on a sinful world, but are a direct result of the sinful and broken world that we live in. God’s promise is to love you no matter what happens or no matter what you have done. And you have no better proof of this then Jesus death, burial and resurrection.
For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
