Everlasting Arms

Encouragement for your daily walk with God

God is, Himself, our support at all times. Whether we sink in humiliation, or are beset in deep trouble, or fallen in sinfulness, or feel a sense of worthlessness; when we are at our worst and lowest, underneath you are the everlasting arms of God. By the way, Christ follower, that you are undergirded in His everlasting arms implies that even though you fall to the uttermost, to the uttermost He saves. This is how the author of Hebrews said it:

Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. [Hebrews 7:25 - emphasis mine]

What assurance; what support; what comfort! It implies sufficient strength for each and every day; sufficient grace for every need; sufficient power for every task. Like David of old we can proclaim that, “I will fear no evil for You are with me!” [Psalm 23:4]

From our first day as a Christ follower until the final breath of our last day as a Christ follower, we are upheld by the “everlasting arms.” Arms that neither faint nor grow weary! [Isaiah 40:28]

The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms; He will thrust out the enemy from before you, and will say, “Destroy!” Deuteronomy 33:27
