His Kindness and Covenant

December 27  His Kindness and Covenant

For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you. (Isaiah 54:10 ESV)

One of the most delightful qualities of divine love is its abiding character. The pillars of the earth may be moved out of their places, but the kindness and the covenant of our merciful Jehovah never depart from His people. How happy my soul feels in a firm belief of this inspired declaration! The year is almost over, and the years of my life are growing few, but time does not change my Lord. New lamps are taking the place of the old; perpetual change is on all things, but our Lord is the same. Force overturns the hills, but no conceivable power can affect the eternal God. Nothing in the past, the present, or the future can cause Jehovah to be unkind to me.

My soul, rest in the eternal kindness of the Lord, who treats you as one near of kin. Remember also the everlasting covenant. God is ever mindful of it—see that you are mindful of it too. In Christ Jesus the glorious God has pledged Himself to me to be my God and to hold me as one of His people. Kindness and covenant-dwell on these words as sure and lasting things which eternity itself shall not take from me.
