Good morning, DearHeart.
When I really put thought into the supports in my life, I am in awe. Kori has a new pup, a border collie…and, Kori is her lifeline.
Support – holding each other up – to stand – sustain – has been on my mind lately … both sides, receiving, and giving.
Our God is intimately involved in the life of each one of His children. He knows each of us … right down to the number of each dyed hair. He is present in our lives, every single minute down to the most minutest of details.
And, this is the truth which gives us the support needed in the hardest of circumstances –
Our God will support us in all things for all of our days.
“If I go to heaven, you are there; if I go down to the grave, you are there. If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support me.” (Psalm 139:10-11, NLT)
Our God, intimately with us – in every detail of our lives, is supporting us every step of the way. I am struck by the truth of how God begins a life and grows each of us in the womb of our mothers.
But, there is another truth found in this psalm which should invite us to
before the grace and mercy of our God,
who alone is infinite in His power
abounds in grace and mercy;
and loves. us. fiercely.
It is His strength that supports us.
“… and your strength will support me. (Psalm 139:10b, NLT)
Even there – He is The Support.
