“‘Though the mountains be shaken and the hills removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant be of peace be removed,’ says the Lord, who has compassion on you. All your sons will be taught by the Lord, and great will be your children’s peace.”
Isa. 54:10, 13
“’Though the mountains be shaken and the hills removed. . .” Even if the world would come to an end through earthquake, leveling the mountains and hills God will be there beside us.
“. . . yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken. . .” God will still love us as our world falls apart- the spiritual, the emotional, as well as the actual.
“. . . nor my covenant be of peace be removed,’” God says that he will keep His pact of peace with His people. Where would we be if we didn’t have this inner strength when we definitely need it—as our world, both figurative and literal, collapses?
“. . . says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” Isaiah reminds us that these are God’s words and that He has tenderness for His children. Where would we be without God’s desire to look out for us?
“All your sons will be taught by the Lord. . .” Isaiah gives his audience hope here. The Lord will guide their sons in learning what they will need. In the 21st Century, we want the children of our natural families and our church families to learn of the Lord. We all need to ask God the proper way to do this.
“’ . . . and great will be your children’s peace.” Isaiah tells his audience there will be a positive result for the Lord’s efforts through them. Their children will not be confused, depressed or down-hearted. The will be at peace. Praise the Lord!
