Who Carries Who?

In Isaiah 46, the Babylonians must carry their gods around. And still today people carry their gods around. It might be money. It might be a technological gadget. It might be anything that we live for, that we trust in, that we center our lives around, that we look to for significance and satisfaction and security. And we carry it.

In contrast, the one true God carries us. He carried us in the womb. He has carried us through life through the good and the bad. He will carry us in old age. At death, he will carry our souls to Himself. And at the resurrection, he will carry us to the new earth.

You can carry around a man-made god or you can rest in the God who carries you.
