Daily Bearing

Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up….He is the one who gives power and strength to his people.” “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.” Psalm 68:19,35; Isaiah 46:4

Daily. What a comforting, fortifying thought. God does not say, today I’ll bear you up, and see how you do, and then decide about tomorrow. His promise is lasting, for daily sufficiency, daily sustenance, daily encouragement, daily power. Every first waking moment He is nigh, His everlasting arms underneath as we rise. He bears us up–not as a burden, but as our stable support, as we go on our way. He hoists us up to see as He sees and to breathe His air, to move in His direction and sense His strength through every moment, every hour. He strides with us in every encounter, sits with us through every sorrow, abides with us in decisions and relationships and difficult tasks and storms. And He bears us through day’s end, and on to bed. In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the Lord sustained me. ” O, what a God He is! (Deuteronomy 33:27; Psalm 4:8; 3:5)

Sunset w orange, clouds, rain

Lord, Lifter of my head, I bless You for faithfully, consistently bearing me up. May my daily and everlasting song bear high Your Name and glory. and immeasurable worth
