I am 86 years old and I have thought about my age a lot, are there promises for me when I am feeble and have a bad heart valve and am headed for surgery soon for that. I need all the help I can get from God and I need the hope that is in His promises. I like to take them personally. Maybe some of you are my age or even older and I am sure you will appreciate these promises as I do.
Psalm 71:9 "Do not cast me off in the time of old age; do not forsake me when my strength fails." This can be our prayer as we get older and our strength is failing. I never dreamed I would live this long and have as good of health that I have. It is a miracle in itself.
Psalm 37:25,26 "I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous begging bread. He is ever merciful and lends; and his descendants are blessed."
Isaiah 46:4 "Even to your old age, I am He, and even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and I will deliver you." What a promise that He will carry us, He has made us and He will carry us and deliver us.
Psalm 71:18 "Now also when I am old and gray headed, O God, do not forsake me, untilI I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to everyone who is to come." I am hoping that He will allow me to continue my blogging after my heart surgery and declare His strength to those I talk to and love, even my studies here on this blog.
Psalm 92:14 "They shall still bear fruit in old age, they shall be fresh and flourishing." I will claim this promise as I continue my journey here.
Psalm 92:15 "To declare that the Lord is upright; He is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him."
Proverbs 16:31 "The silver haired head is a crown of glory, if it is found in the way of righteousness."
This has been a wonderful study, and it has added strength to my old age and hopefully my silver hair is a crown of glory, I want to be found in the way of righteousness. I hope someone has been blessed by this study as much as I have. I needed these verses very much. It has strengthened my faith and I know that God is watching over me. How about you? I pray that you have been blessed. Grandma Joan
