“For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.” Isaiah 54:10
The covenant that God has forged with humanity is not simply a contract. Any corporate lawyer will tell you all contracts can be broken; there is always a clause that has the plausibility of severance. A covenant, on the other hand, cannot be broken; there are no loop holes. It simply is what it says it is; and, each party must adhere to the binding agreement.
In our minds, a mountain stands resolute, absolutely stoic and unchallenged by any entity or element. So, when we consider a mountain, the very last thing that we would ever think about is that a mountain can move, disappear, or depart. So just imagine, the Bible says that, the beauty, strength and majesty of a mountain shall depart.–Be completely removed from the face of the earth, but God’s Love, Peace, Mercy, Forgiveness, and Favor will never leave YOU.
If for some reason you are going through something so dreadful that you believe you do not have anything to be truly thankful for, put your feelings aside and meditate on today’s verse. It will help you to find God’s Love in the midst of your issue.
And, for those of you who truly understand God’s Love in your life, even in the midst of your most arduous circumstances, May God’s Light continue to shine through you and for you. May the abundance of His Love find you and every member of your extended family.
Whether you have been reading In The Master’s Hands for one day or since the beginning, it is with sincere gratitude that I thank YOU for taking the time to read these words and for being a part of this journey.
Thank you once again, Happy Mother's Day to those who are celebrating this around the world, and Much Love. -L.
