What Does Isaiah 46:4 Mean? ►
And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.
It has always been a great comfort for believers to realise that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, and that the Lord knows us before we are born.. for He it is 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.
But this 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 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 first flush of youth; our years of vigorous actions; or our blushing adult activities – when we are motoring 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 – for He has promised: even to your old age I am He; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you. I have made you. I will uphold you. I even I will carry, and will deliver you.
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
God will not forget us when we’re in trouble or when we are old. We may outlive our friends and be forgotten by those who know us, but God will never leave us or forsake us. He will sustain, carry, protect, and rescue us.
Thank you, my Father, for promising to never forget me. Because of your faithfulness to your children of old, I know I can trust your promise to never leave me. I trust that no matter where I am or where I go, you will go with me. In Jesus’ name I offer my heartfelt thanks. Amen.
