I have been busy lately, and I have felt overloaded with not only things to do, but also with concerns. Perhaps you have felt like me? You pray and yet still feel burdened? Have you ever experienced that? Well, it is precisely there where God met me with a powerful and comforting verse. Is 46:3-4 says,
"Hearken unto me, O house of Jacob, and all the remnant of the house of Israel, which are borne by me from the belly, which are carried from the womb: 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."
NIV 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."
Isn't that beautiful? From our conception to our death He makes us, bears us, carries us, rescues us, and delivers us! We get caught up in so many things and forget that,
"I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me" Is 46:9.
We forget that He works out ALL details according to His purpose and pleasure. Is 46:10
May we all walk in true peace today, knowing and trusting that He is indeed in complete control. May we teach this by word and deed to our children. May fear, doubt, concern and worry have no place in our hearts as we walk in faith, trust, peace, and contentment. After all, we are His, and He is King. Love Michelle
