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 grey hairs I will carry you, I have made and I will bear; Even I will carry, and will deliver you.”
From the above words we learn that God who created us is able to carry us through. He promises to carry us even when we are old. He will not only carry us but also deliver us from all our troubles that we might be going through in our old age. It has always been a great comfort for the children of God to realise that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, and that the Lord knows us before we are born, for it is He that 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 interested. 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 birth to death. The Lord is not only interested in us during the first flush of youth; our years of vigorous actions; or our blushing adult activities or 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.
Our God, who begot us into His family, 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 to be rest assured of God’s providence for you. Even when you go through pressing trials, God supports you and cares for you. He considers you as the workmanship of His own hands. So God will bear you, He will carry you, and will deliver you out of all your affliction, and even from the grave so that your soul is delivered.
Have you submitted your life to God? Love the Lord for He hears your voice. He hears your cry when you are in great need and delivers your soul from death. God says, “I will be your God throughout your lifetime.” Therefore draw close to God put your confidence in God. He will rescue you from all your problems. He is a God of promise. His promises are true. For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen. So you can rely on Him at all times. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Thank You Lord for comforting and consoling us through Your Word. We need your help when people forsake us. Usually we are disregarded. Lord take pity on us. Do consider us in our old age and as You have promised , deliver us from all our problems and save us. We also 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.
