Standing on top of a massive boulder in the Hoodoos of Yellowstone, I felt like I was on top of the world. Fog wrapped around the mountains and hills surrounding me, cloaking the morning in beauty. As solid as the rock under my feet was, I knew it had been broken off from a surrounding mountain and relocated by a landslide years ago. Mountains are shaken, just like our lives. That which we once deemed immovable can crumble—a relationship, health, our carefully constructed plans. Where can we turn when everything that once seemed solid crashes down around us? Isaiah 54 promises, “‘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” (verse 10). No matter what we may face, one thing remains unshakable: God’s unfailing love for us. Since the dawn of creation, He loved us and had a plan to save us. God gave us the ability to choose either to follow Him or go our own way. Beginning with the very first humans, we all rebelled against God and His good ways. That separated us from God—our loving creator. But God graciously offers us another choice: we can choose whether or not to believe in His Son, Jesus— trusting in His death on the cross to pay for our sins and His resurrection from the dead to defeat death once and for all. This is the covenant of peace: we no longer have to be separated from God because Jesus Christ made a way for us. Isaiah 53 is all about the promised Messiah, the One who God sent to bear our sins, redeem us, and heal us. The following chapter, Isaiah 54, reminds us our future is secure because of Jesus and His compassion. When we place our trust in Him, we have an unshakable promise that the love of God will never be removed from us (Romans 8:38-39). • Savannah Coleman • Scripture tells us that God’s love is unshakable. Can you remember a time when you felt sure of God’s love? Take a moment to thank Him for that. • Do you ever feel like God’s love is not something you can depend on? How might today’s Scripture speak into that? Also check out John 10:27-30. “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. Isaiah 54:10 (NIV)
