For the mountains may depart, and the hills be removed; but my loving kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD who has mercy on you.
In 2017 there were many devastating natural disasters. Huge hurricanes washed away entire towns in Texas, typhoons and flooding killed thousands in Asia, mudslides killed hundreds in South America, and wildfires burned huge swatches of destruction in California. People would evacuate their homes with a few possessions and come back to find nothing but rubble.
Today’s verse offers the promise of love through out all these things. Though the floods come, the fires burn, and the mountains themselves split up and explode, God’s love for us still stands. His covenant for our peace assures us that God is in control.
So when disaster strikes, remember God’s eternal love for you. Put your trust in Him and rest in His peace.
