Whole Lotta Shakin’ – Isaiah 54:10
“For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake, but my lovingkindness will not be removed from you.”(Isaiah 54:10) That’s a wonderful promise but it has no reality for most of us because we have never experienced the world literally coming down around us.
Oh, some have – such as those who have gone through natural disasters and certainly those who are right now in war torn places. They are seeing mountains being removed and hills shaking. We should think about this because there is more to come. Remember that Jesus said regarding the End Times; “for then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever shall.” (Matthew 24:21)
As these things begin to happen, how shall we react? Do we wring our hands and feel afraid and anxious? Do we shake our head and click our TV to another channel so we don’t have to face it? Do we cry out; “why us?”
Instead, consider what is being offered to us during times of shaking. He said; “my lovingkindness will not be removed from you.”Think of it like wearing a fur lined wool cloak in bitter winter. It is wrapped snugly around you if you belong to the Savior. You are safe from the elements and it will not come off. It may be cold out there but not to you.
If you have yet to be personally touched by mountains moving or hills shaking, that’s good; but – your turn may come. If it does, be ready. The Lord’s lovingkindness is your coat of protection as the world spins more and more out of control awaiting his return. Are you wearing yours?
