“O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. Now also when I am old and greyheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.” (Psalms 71: 17-18)
We have had God’s presence with us since the beginning. He has been faithfully instructing as and we have matured in strength and understanding. We are daily gaining more awareness of His goodness, through every challenge and opportunity, through each new inspiration and victories small and great.
Our youthfulness has celebrated the exuberance and eagerness and innocence of children of God, those who enter into life with wonder and delight, ready to learn and without the strain of doubts, fears, and material education. We remain these children, these learning and leaning ideas, yet perhaps with more wisdom, a broader view, and a greater compassion through our experiences. We remain God’s dear little ones, fresh with promise, and approval and He remains faithful to us forevermore.
God does not see age and deterioration, loss or damage. He grants to each idea a newness that is His own nature, expressing itself naturally and necessarily. In this continued vitality He expresses, we prove Him. We prove God’s presence, power, and sustaining grace through all time and to all people. He never forsakes us, and in Him our youth is mature and our maturity is youthful. His love towards us never changes, and so we are always safe and saved, preserved and adored.
