"For even if the mountains walk away and the hills fall to pieces, My love won't walk away from you, my covenant commitment of peace won't fall apart. The God who has compassion on you says so" Isaiah 54:10 The Message
Now THAT'S commitment, y'all!
Yes, there might be earthquakes, but He will still be there. Things might fall to pieces, but He will be there offering you wholeness.
I like the sound of that phrase - covenant commitment of peace. He's committed to peace. When everything seems in an uproar, when voices of defeat are harping at us, He will be speaking words of peace.
Sometimes, He even has us go through a time of exile ... but it's only temporary. He has compassion on us. Compassion means sympathy, but it's more than that. It's also a desire to alleviate the distress.
You see, He has promised, even decreed that for God's servants everything works out for the best.
Will you trust Him?
