“God’s Unfailing Love”
Passage: Isaiah 54:10
Carol Sue Hutchinson
God’s unfailing love is the greatest love expression. Someone gave me this image to hold onto. God’s unfailing is when you sat on a parent’s lap and you were wrapped in their arms and they were telling you how loved you are. That image has never left me when I was alone, sad, undecided, and needed a friend. In so many scriptures, God reassures us that He loves us, wants the very best for us and is our friend.
This passage also talks about the Covenant of peace and how it is tied to God’s unfailing love. The wording is beautiful.
“Though the mountains be shaken, and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor the covenant of peace be removed.”
This a powerful statement of God’s love, protection and caring for His people. There have been times during this year when I felt like our world was shaken, yet according to this scripture passage, God’s love is not shaken. What a wonderful anchor to hold onto in times of discouragement and distress. We are the precious children of God and nothing can shake His love from us.
Prayer: Loving God, help me to “hang on” when life gets troubling and shaken. We will hang on to your unfailing love. Amen.
