A Love that Will Never Fail

My favorite verse in the Bible is Isaiah 54:10. It assures me of God’s unfailing love for me that will never be shaken and of His covenant of peace that will not be removed. It shows me that God’s love for me is more certain and stable than the mountains and the hills. Even if these are shaken and removed, God’s covenant of peace is a sure one. In the book of Isaiah, Isaiah the prophet said God would punish the Israelites for their sin. Because they did not obey God’s commandments but instead rebelled against Him, worshipping idols and acting unjustly, God would send them into exile. But then, because God is compassionate, He would bring restoration, forgiveness, and healing after the punishment. Not only would God rescue Israel from exile, but He would also send the Messiah who would bring peace and safety to Israel and beyond. The Messiah would be a light to the nations. He would suffer for sin, and through His suffering, our wrongdoings would be taken away. This verse was a message of hope and comfort to the Israelites, the original audience, when they were suffering in captivity because of their sin. God said, because of His unfailing love, He would never leave them. What does this promise mean for us today? At times, we may feel overwhelmed with the fear of abandonment by friends and even family. We crave safety, protection, and a sense of connection with people who love us—and these are all good desires. Yet, because our world has been broken by sin, the people in our lives will fail us. But even then, God will be with us (Psalm 27:10). He loves us with unfailing love, and He will not abandon us. In the New Testament of the Bible, we see the promise of a Messiah fulfilled. Jesus—who is God in flesh—came and suffered for our sins by dying on the cross. Then He rose from the dead, beating sin and death once and for all. Hebrews 7:22 tells us that Jesus guarantees the covenant of peace and love. Because I’ve put my trust in Jesus, this covenant assures me of God’s unfailing and everlasting love for me. Let us be encouraged to know God’s love for us will never fail and His covenant of peace stands forever. • Enid Adah Nyinomujuni • What feels shaky in your life today? How might God’s promise in Isaiah 54:10 give you hope? “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.
