Isaiah 54:10 “‘For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, but My lovingkindness will not be removed from you, and My covenant of peace will not be shaken,’ says the Lord who has compassion on you.”
HE SAYS WHAT HE MEANS
If there is one thing that is for sure, the Lord keeps His word. If He says it, you can take it to the bank. And here in today’s verse He says something. Basically, he says, “The world may be falling apart around you, but I will always love you and keep My covenant with you.” Wow! What a promise.
If you look around the world today, things are crazy. There are floods, earthquakes, mudslides, volcano eruptions, tornadoes and hurricanes. There are mass shootings at schools and churches. There are attacks on police and gang violence. But this verse still holds true. God loves you. If you are in covenant with Him through His Son, Jesus, there is nothing that can touch you that He doesn’t allow.
This is a reassuring verse for children. They want to feel safe. The next time little Johnny or Susie is anxious about something, read them this verse. It should calm their spirits. The very God of all creation loves them and always will. The God who knows every soul knows them personally and wants them to know Him.
These are the truths our children need to know and understand. There is no other person who can be totally trustworthy. People fail us. But God never will. When we trust His sovereignty in our lives, we can truly rest. Teach your children that.
More importantly, show them that. When you are up against a wall with no help in sight, trust Him. Let your children watch you trust. Let your children watch you praise Him in the valley. Let your children watch you turn to the ONLY ONE who you can trust.
