Verse 4 is a comfort as you grow old. God still cares with the same passion and energy as He did when you were young. We suffer modern examples of Bel and Nebo here in Australia. Take heart, God is greater than the spiritual and secular forces arrayed against the Church.
How good is this, the LOVE that is evident from the Lord in His words, “… Even to your old age I am he, and to gray hairs I will carry you. I have made, and I will bear; I will carry and will save.”
Again in this passage the Lord is calling us to remember and stand firm – against idolatry.
“… For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me,”
But here we have Him declaring His diligence and compassion.
TO GRAY HAIRS He will carry us! How beautiful this imagery is, this truth.
He has made us, He will bear us. He will carry us, and He will save us.
Hallelujah, what a Saviour! He alone is God!
* Gracious Father, there is none like You. There is no other, You have shown us from the beginning, and will show us to the end.
Thank You for Your loving promise, to carry us through to gray hairs. That even in our old age You are God, the Lord, our Saviour.
Thank You Lord.
Please mark us as a people who are singular in our devotion to You, listening only to Your word, Your voice.
