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. To whom will ye liken me, and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be like?
Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:
God wants to get your attention. You, who are overwhelmed by the waves. You, who are feeling the heat of fire. You, whose body is wasting away. You, who are struggling under the weight of depression.
This is your Father speaking! This is the great I am, who has proven himself again and again throughout history. This is the one who has been protecting you since you were swimming in the womb, growing up in the world, and even now as your hair turns gray and your skin wrinkles. God has always been here, and he always will be.
God sees your struggles, catches your tears, feels your pain, hears your prayers, and says, through the prophet Isaiah, “I will sustain you and I will rescue you,” and “I am God, and there is none like me.”
What is the problem that you think is too big for God? Place it before him and watch the great I am, the maker of heaven and earth, take it over. God can do anything. God can stop cancer, lead your child to salvation, heal your broken heart, and give us the peace that is beyond understanding.
One day, God will make all things new, and “there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain” (Revelation 21:4). Keep holding on! Hold on to Jesus when life tosses you to and fro. We know that God—the great I am—is in charge and will sustain you and carry you through.
