“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)
Humanity is a frail fall away from the ditch of self-pity, self-righteousness, and selfishness. We aren’t automatically generous, patient, and grace-filled. God sustains us and rescues us, sometimes from our very selves, as we are sanctified daily. He knows what we need, physically and spiritually. He knows all of our downfalls and shortcomings, but also our magnificent triumphs and spectacular talents. He is faithful to sustain us through heartaches and pain, confusion and loss. In so many ways, the Author of our hearts cares so specifically for us.
