“…I have cared for you since you were born. Yes, I carried you before you were born. I will be your God throughout your lifetime—until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you." Isaiah 46:3-4 (NLT)
The promise in Isaiah 46:3-4 includes the phrase, “I will." God’s “I will” does not mean “I will consider it as an option.”
God says, “I will be your God throughout your lifetime.” God doesn’t stop thinking about us when we reach old age, neither does He consider us “no longer fit” for His service once we leave our youth. God can work through us when we are young, as adults, and He can make our senior years fruitful and meaningful.
The promise of God’s presence in Isaiah 46:3 includes His continued watch-care over us. From our first day to our last day, from childhood to adulthood, from our infant years to our golden years…God is the One who will never leave us or forsake us. His promise assures us that there will never be a time when we cannot trust Him with every detail of our lives. When our hair has turned white, let it be a faith-building reminder that the promise of God’s presence will not change.
