Topic: Thank-Filled: For Promises
Scripture: I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you. – Isaiah 46:4, NIV
Recommended Reading: Isaiah 41:1-4
Message: “When I was going through COVID,” said Joni Eareckson Tada, “the hardest part was having to stay in bed…. I wanted to be sitting up in my wheelchair so that I could breathe more easily. It was risky for me to be in bed because of my frail lungs. But the fact was, Ken was sicker than I was, and finding caregivers was nearly impossible…. So for a few days, I stayed in bed. And there, I depended on a different ‘helper,’ as it were. At night in bed and in the dark, God reminded me of his words in Isaiah chapter 46…. ‘I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.’ Wow. I clung to that promise.”
No matter what you may face, there’s always a promise in the Bible on which to cling. The Bible contains thousands of promises, each one for a special need or time in our life. Being thank-filled for these promises gives us heartwarming assurance even during our darkest hours.
For a quadriplegic like me, it’s a heartwarming assurance; it’s a wonderful feeling to know that somebody’s gonna carry you.
