For though the mountains should depart and the hills be shaken or removed, yet My love and kindness shall not depart from you, nor shall My covenant of peace and completeness be removed, says the Lord, Who has compassion on you.
The mountains were regarded as everlasting mountains, and the hills regarded as perpetual, continuing forever or indefinitely. We know that mountains have sometimes been shaken by earthquakes, and removed. These words speak of the steadfastness and integrity of your loving Father. The covenant of peace between God and you shall continue forever. God’s kindness shall never depart from you, for whom He loves, He loves to the end. He is the Lord that has mercy on His people. His covenant with you is immovable and unshakable, because it is not based on your merit (which is changeable), but on His grace and mercy, which is from everlasting to everlasting.
Do you worry that you may have fallen short of His love? Or are you going through a situation that makes you wonder if God still loves you? He says to you today, "My love and kindness shall not depart from you".
A Prayer of Thanks for God's Love: Heavenly Father, any words I speak or pictures I draw cannot fully describe your infinite love. Your boundless love reaches beyond the heavens and yet it penetrates my individual heart. It is only in experiencing a personal relationship with you that I begin to sense the inexhaustible and pure love that comes only from You. Even as the waves of the ocean are powerful and wash over the rocks, may Your abundant love fill my life to overflowing so that Christ’s love is seen through me. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
