God as Defender of the Afflicted
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 NRSV
From Isaiah 54, we have an image that the arms of the Lord are long; and, they gather those who feel scattered. God brings calm in the midst of chaos.
