“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
Earthquakes hit our lives and send everything out of control. Things get broken or moved off center at the very least. And when the shaking ends, we look around at the mess it left and wonder what happened, and how we’ll pick up all the pieces.
Let’s face it. There are a tremendous amount of things that can be shaken in our lives. When our worth and/or happiness is determined by what we have, who loves us, who approves of us, what we do, how much we’ve accomplished — we have a lot to lose when a shaking comes.
But God’s promise is this: Whatever is shaking in your life, it cannot shake you free from His love and His promise of salvation. That’s your safe ground right there. If you are going to cling to something, cling to that.
Everything else can shake. Everything else may need to shake until it falls. God promises that He will not be shaken.
