Unshakeable

‘Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,’ says the LORD, who has compassion on you.” [Isaiah 54:10 NIV]

One of the things I love about the character of the Lord is that He is unshakeable. Immovable, solid as a rock, unchanging and unwavering. It’s that kind of resolution you can rely on, lean on, stake your life on. His promises and His love are everlasting and unbreakable.

The verse above is one of my favourites because it displays this aspect of our Creator. It is easier to shake a mountain loose of its foundations and send it crumbling into the sea, than it is to shake the love of God. Sometimes we think we have done things that would make Him reject us forever, that He could never forgive us for. But, the truth is He has compassion on every one of us – He is aware of our suffering under guilt or shame and desires us to be restored to Him. His love constantly reaches out, despite our darkest thoughts and acts.

Unshakeable love simply washes away the unforgivable, kind of like a tidal wave washing away whatever is in its path. So, I want to encourage you today, if you feel like you are not good enough for God, or have sinned too greatly for His acceptance – think again. He is standing close by with arms of compassion, ready to receive you. All you need to do is call His name.

  1. I love that too. How many people can we rely on to be totally unshakeable at all times? Totally awesome privilege to be able to rely on the One who is.

    • Doesn’t it just make you be able to relax a whole lot easier? Thanks for your support, Paula. 🙂

  2. ‘He is aware of our suffering under guilt or shame and desires us to be restored to Him. His love constantly reaches out, despite our darkest thoughts and acts.’

    I can’t imagine living without this assurance. Even with it, I sometimes struggle, but I’m glad my heart can take it in when my mind refuses to play!

    Great encouragement.

    • It is easy to still struggle even with that knowledge, Dotty. Guilt and shame creep up on us in spite of the knowledge we’re forgiven. I think that’s the enemy’s way of trying to hold us back. Thanks Dots. 🙂
