Because of Jesus

Isaiah 54 is such a beautiful chapter of the bible. It displays God’s heart for us once we enter the new covenant made possible by our Lord Jesus. Because of Jesus we are loved, we have peace and our Father promises never to be angry with us. Consider Isaiah 54:9-10.

Isaiah 54:9-10 Amplified Bible (AMP)

“For this is like the waters of Noah to Me,
As I swore [an oath] that the waters of Noah
Would not flood the earth again;
In the same way I have sworn that I will not be angry with you
Nor will I rebuke you.

“For the mountains may be removed and the hills may shake,
But My loving-kindness will not be removed from you,
Nor will My covenant of peace be shaken,”
Says the Lord who has compassion on you.

God is saying that because of what Jesus did for us, He will never be angry with us, never rebuke us, that His loving kindness will never be removed from us. His peace will also never be shaken from us.
When trials and difficulties come, when we have doubts or fears, what a beautiful word to rest in. We are loved, we have peace and do not have to fear for God is with us! Rest in Jesus finished work for you at the cross, rest in the great love of the Father and the Son, all because of Jesus!
I pray that this understanding may create in you renewed peace and rest.

 

Ephesians 3:17-18Amplified Bible (AMP)

so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through your faith. And may you, having been [deeply] rooted and [securely] grounded in love, be fully capable of comprehending with all the saints (God’s people) the width and length and height and depth of His love [fully experiencing that amazing, endless love];
