For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.
Isaiah 54:10 (KJV)
No amount of mistake or shortcoming on our part can ever remove us from God’s covenant of peace that is in Christ Jesus. Knowing this with confidence frees us from the bonds of fear, guilt and condemnation, and it reminds us that the foundation for our right standing is never our own performance, but the finished works of Jesus. Having this assurance in our hearts enables us to grow in our walk with the Lord, and to always become more fully who He has created us to be.
