Isaiah 54:10 – Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you.God has established mountains and hills for the present age and they are not expected to be removed from their positions. They contribute to the environmental balance so as to facilitate life here on earth. They stand tall and demonstrate strength and stability. Through these mountains and hills, God speaks to His children and compare it with His mercy and lovingkindness to His children. For God says that even if the mighty mountains and hills are removed from their position, which is impossible for man to think or imagine, God’s mercy and compassion will not depart from His children. God has placed such might and stability for His promise of mercy for His children. He is the loving and compassionate Father and the most merciful Shepherd of His people. His love and compassion flow to His children, not because they are perfect and always do things which are pleasing to Him, but because He understands our frailties and shortcomings. His mercy cannot be hindered by any of our failures and weaknesses. In fact, when our weaknesses and failures increase, His mercy abounds for us to come out of our weaknesses. He deals with us on the basis of His love and mercy rather than on the basis of His laws. Surely, He will discipline us when we go astray and disobey Him. Even then, He deals with us as a loving father disciplines his children. His disciplines are for our good and not for us to be destroyed. If we do something wrong, we will have to pick up its consequences. If we choose our own way, we might end up paying heavily through our lives. But in His mercy, our God forgives us and helps us out of our difficulties and restores us. He has pronounced that His mercy will not depart from us and that it will never move a millimeter. What He has promised will definitely be fulfilled, not because we are perfectly faithful to Him, but because He is faithful in His covenant to us.
