Memorise: “With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.” (Psalm 91:16).
Read: Psalm 91:11-16
The word of God is forever settled. The only way to live and fulfil destiny is to act on the written and spoken word of God. The Word of God is the only truth available for the deliverance of man. If you have His word, your life will definitely bless your world. Anyone living in ignorance of the word of God is dead while he lives. The first deliverance you need is to be delivered from ignorance of what God is saying about your life. If you miss what he says about you, you have missed what it takes to be on earth and that’s more dangerous than physical death.
“I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the LORD.” (Psalm 118:17).
The only reason God is keeping you is because you are created to proclaim His goodness on earth. Your sole purpose on earth is to give God pleasure. You are not here to pressurise God with your needs and what you lack. You are alive today because there are yet so many purposes of God that you must fulfil. Who said you will not live long? Who is that strong man tormenting your life and trying to frustrate God’s grace over your life? Such a one is ignorant of the counsel of God for you. You are here for a purpose and you will fulfil that purpose. Once you identify with the Lord in spirit and in truth, your longevity is secured and your days on earth shall be gloriously lived.
This is what the Lord says:
“I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.” (Revelation 1:18).
The Keys are with your God. Therefore fear not! Don’t be afraid of that sickness, the Lord will heal you! Don’t be afraid of the arrows of the wicked they shall do you no harm. The Lord is with you as a mighty and terrible one.
God is keeping you for a glorious reason. Don’t abuse the grace to sleep and wake up. It’s not a function of your health, balanced diet or medications. It’s just because God has you in His plans. “I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the LORD sustained me.” (Psalm 3:5). You can only die spiritually and physically when you refuse to acknowledge the grace of our Lord upon your life. If you waste His grace, you will be wasted on the earth. When grace is absent, spiritual death will be inevitable.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:” (Ephesians 2:8).
If you want to live long, embrace divine grace that brings salvation. If you’ll like to be glad continually on the earth, receive the Lord into your heart by faith, and the grace to live in joy and peace will be released unto you. You can’t be sure of a good and long life if your life is not in the hand of God. Be careful who controls your heart. The owner of your heart equally owns your life. If it’s God who owns your heart, you can go ahead and rejoice and be at peace because With long life will He satisfy you, and show you His salvation. But if your destiny is being controlled by the cares of this life and worldly dictates, you need to run to Jesus for salvation and be ultimately delivered from demonic manipulations and untimely death. God loves you.
Father, please open my eyes to see Your provision for my long and prosperous stay on earth. Don’t allow me to be wasted by sin and the devil. I will live to give You pleasure and not pressure. Thank You Jesus!
