"Even to hoar hairs will I carry you." Isaiah 46:4

WHAT a sweet portion is this for the aged disciples of the Lord Jesus: heart and flesh may fail them, but God will not forsake them. Having begun a good work in them, He will carry it on. His gifts and callings are without repentance. He will be as kind, as tender, and as gracious at last as at the first. He will carry us, The eternal God is our refuge, underneath are the everlasting arms. He will carry us safely through every danger, over every difficulty, into His presence and glory. Aged pilgrim, lean upon thy God, look unto Him; and as the nurse carrieth the sucking child, so will thy God carry thee. He will prove Himself faithful to His word, and ultimately call you forth as a witness to the same. Fear not then in reference to the evening of old age: thy God will supply thee; He will support thee; and at last land thee safe where the storms of trouble never blow, where weakness and fears are never felt. "Take no anxious thought for the morrow; let the morrow take thought for the things of itself; sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." The promise of thy God cannot fail thee; He will guide thee and carry thee to His kingdom and glory. He says--

E'en down to old age, all My people shall prove
My sov'reign, eternal, unchangeable love;
And when hoary hairs shall their temples adorn,
Like lambs they shall still in My bosom be borne.
