Trust in God to sustain you in life!
[The Lord says,] “Even to your old age and gray hairs, I am He, I am He who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.
Isaiah 46:4 NIV
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
How many times has God carried you, or rescued you?
Do you want an awesome promise from God? Hear the Words of the “Great God Jehovah” to the remnant of the house of Israel. To the children of Abraham who by Faith have become children of the Most High God with the same rights and privileges as the house of Israel. (That’s us Christians folks! We who have made Jesus our Lord!) He is telling them; “put your trust in Me, believe in Me, have faith in Me, for it is I who will keep you and carry you, it is I who will rescue you, and it is I who will sustain you, not those graven idols you have been worshiping.” Then in verses 9 & 10 (of Isaiah 46) He tells them this; “Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:” He is telling the remnant of the house of Israel to return to Him and He will show them His salvation (the Hebrew word translated here as salvation means: liberty, deliverance, prosperity, saving and salvation: it means all of these). By the time it got down to the “New Testament”, the Great Jehovah had extended that offer to all the rest of the people on Earth (the unbelieving heathen and gentiles of the world, if they would believe in Him and His Son Jesus) as well as just Israel. Now, Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8), He is telling us this same thing today, trust in me and I will deliver you and keep you! Is your source the Lord? Or do you trust in the world, worse yet do you trust in SELF instead of God?
Almighty God, I give You all praise and glory forever. Lord I thank You that You carry me when I am in times of trouble, that You are always there to rescue me, and that it is You who sustain me when I can no longer continue. Lord, now I understand why at times I see two sets of footprints behind me and yet at other times I see only one set. I used to think that You had left my side, but now I know that when there was only one set, that was when You were carrying me in Your arms and in Your grace. I thank You Lord that You have never and never will leave me nor forsake me. I put all my trust in You Lord and in Jesus name, I pray.
