Caring God


Psalm 71:9:  Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.

The psalmist requests God to not cast him off in his old age.  He also requests Him not to forsake when his strength fails.  God will never forsake us or leave us when we put our hope in Him fully.

Jesus has promised us that He will be with us until the end of the world.  He will be with us and take care of our every needs just like how parents take care of their children.  There is no end to His mercy or compassion.  His love is steadfast and it changes not.  We need not be filled with fear or be in anxiety as to who will comfort or cater to our needs when stricken with old age.  The scriptures tell us to cast all our burden and our anxiety on Jesus for He cares about us.  They also tell us that our God will supply all our needs according to His riches in heaven.

Therefore, make your requests known to God.  Until God’s time to take us to our eternal home, He will not forsake us or leave us alone.  Put your hope in God and make Him your strong refuge and strength.   God says in Isaiah 46:4: And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you; I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.
