Deuteronomy 30:19-20 ….."For He is your life and length of your days…"
The American Association of Retired People (AARP), founded in 1958, was established with the goal of helping Americans, age 50 and older, remain physically and intellectually active by serving others. Why? People are simply living longer. In 2015, the world was home to nearly half a million centenarians (people ages 100 and older), more than four times as many as in 1990, according to United Nations estimates.
So many studies have been done on centenarians and longevity, concluding that long life is something you can "achieve" if you do all the right things. Two scientists in Okinawa, Japan studied centenarians for over three decades. They attribute long life to genetics, diet, an active lifestyle, a relaxed life, and a "don't worry, it will work out" mindset.
Would you like to hear God's supernatural prescription for long life? The Bible says the Lord is your life and the length of your days. In other words, the length of your days is a person, and His name is Jesus! Psalm 91:14-15 says, "With long life I will satisfy him, and show him My salvation". The secret for long life is found in the last word of the last line…salvation.
The Hebrew word for salvation in this verse is Yeshua, meaning Jesus. Glory to God! In other words, you could say, "With long life I will satisfy him by showing him My Jesus". Wherever you see Jesus in the Word, you see long life and length of days. See Jesus and see longevity. And not just surviving or existing either, God promises us a long, strong and satisfying life. So, today I am here to announce to you, you're later days shall be greater than your former days, in Jesus' name. Can I get an amen?!!
