Dearly Beloved, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given for you today is from the book of Isaiah 46:4, “Even to your old age, I am He, and even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; Even I will carry, and will deliver you. Saith the Lord. I am your God and ye are my people”.
From the above context we learn about God’s love for us and how he cares for us even in our old age. He doesn’t forsake us. The Bible says, The Lord will vindicate His people, and have Compassion on His servants. The Lord will take care of his children even when they are old and grey headed.
It has always been a great comfort to realise that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, and that the Lord knows us before we were born, for it is He who formed us in our mother’s womb. Indeed, He has scheduled every day of our lives, watches over our every movement and faithfully remains with us, even when we wander far away from Him. The above verse assures us, that it is not only our early years about which the Lord is concerned; But He is with us every day of our lives, from the cradle to the grave. He cares for us from the womb to the tomb; from start to finish – from birth to death and for every day and season in between.
The Lord is not only interested in us during the initial days, of youth; our years of vigorous actions; or our blushing adult activities – when we are passing through the prime of life. He also is deeply interested in us as we advance into our twilight years -and even on into the frailty of old age. The Lord loves and cares for each one of us when our hair has turned gray, our knees have grown feeble and our faces have become furrowed with wrinkles. He cares for us when our hands start to tremble, our mouths begin to dribble and our minds become increasingly confused and forgetful. And He has promised to carry us and care for us in every season of life, because He is our Father and we are His people. He has made us and He has promised to faithfully carry us; care for us;
help us and deliver us, all the days of our life – until He takes us home.. to be with Himself, in heavenly glory.
I wish to encourage the elderly people of God who are reading this message, to be rest assured of God’s providence for you. Even when you go through pressing infirmities God supports you and cares for you. He considers you as His sons and daughters, the workmanship of His own hands. He is interested in your welfare. Therefore He says, I will bear you I will carry you, and will deliver you out of your entire affliction. Therefore cast all your cares upon Him for He cares for you. God Bless you.
Prayer : Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord thank you for taking care of us and our situation. Thank You Lord for comforting us through Your word, that You will help us and deliver us from all our troubles. You care for us not only when we are young and energetic but also when we grow weak and old in age. Thank You Father for Your constant care and faithfulness throughout our life. Thank You that You will never leave us nor forsake us, even when we become old and forgetful – We praise Your holy name.
