“Upon you I have leaned from before my birth; you are he who took me from my mother’s womb… So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim your might to another generation, your power to all those to come” (Psalm 71:8, 18).
Whatever we go through, whether old or young, God sustains us. When we’re at our most vulnerable in the early years of our lives, when we have much wisdom and many years under our belts, God is the one who holds us up, who gives us breath, who deserves our praise.
Throughout our lives, God proves faithful (71:22). He has proven most faithful in his Son, Jesus Christ. In light of the gospel, we can joyfully praise God for his faithfulness to us and serve him with our entire lives.
