I’ve Carried You Since You Were Born

April 4, 2019


I’ve Carried You Since You Were Born

We have a way of feeling very alone  in this world.     We might be amongst all sorts of people,  and yet,  feel alone.     We might even feel  that God has left us alone.     But,  that is never true.     People might reject us  and ostracize us,  but God is always faithfully calling us back  to Him.     God always wants us  to turn to Him  in all  of our needs.

That is what Isaiah was describing  in Isaiah 46:3-4,  when God was on Israel’s case  for spiritually wandering all over the place.     There,  God says  to all of us,

I’ve carried you  since you were born  and lifted up  from the womb.     Even when you’re old,   I’ll be the same,  and when you’re gray,  I’ll still carry you.     I made you  and will continue  to bear you.     I will carry you  and save you.

We wander like silly sheep,  always thinking the grass is greener  on the other side  of the fence.     But, it’s not.     We are always much better off staying  in the Good Shepherd’s tender care.     Even though we wander,  it is only God Almighty,  who keeps us safe.

We get burdened  with all sorts of sins,  and God reminds us  of where we can be forgiven,  so we lay our sins  on Jesus  once again.     We get bamboozled  by false teachings,  and our Lord brings  to mind His truths,  so we remember  and return  to God’s word.     We get weary  with all our troubles,  and God comes  to comfort and strengthen us,  so we have relief.     We worry  about our future,  and God brings  to mind  His promises in Jesus Christ,  so we have hope once again.

God has faithfully been this way  with us  “since you were born  and lifted up  from the womb.”     We need  to take some quiet time with our Lord  and think through our lives.     Right from our beginning  God has been taking care of us.     That is a miraculous wonder.     We are so prone  to wander  and get lost  in the circus events  of this world.     All the cheap glitter,  gaudy displays,  and loud noises  of this world  so easily distract us  from the quiet peace  and comforting truths  of God’s word.

Bottom line — It’s true.     We are faithfully loved  by the almighty LORD God,  our Savior and King.     Isn’t it about time  that we settle down  and live  in the beauty  of His word?     Everything He has to give us  is eternally good.     It will never pass away.     We will never regret staying close  to our LORD and Savior.

The glitter of this world?     That is something  to be regretted.

As we rejoice  in our LORD’s carrying power,   we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  thank You  for carrying me  and keeping me safe from all the dangers  in this world.     There is such great comfort  in the strength  of Your almighty arms.”
