“With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation” (Psalm 91:16). The Bible has a lot to say about God’s will concerning our lives here on earth—how we are to live and for how long. God has a good, long life planned for us.
God never meant for us to die young. It’s His will for us to live out the full number of our days. According to Galatians 3:13, Jesus has redeemed us from the curse, being made a curse for us. If we have made Jesus our Lord, freedom from all the conditions the curse causes belongs to us—that includes freedom from sickness, destruction and early death.
Like every other blessing, there are conditions to living a long life. Love God and stay connected to Him. You can live in divine health by staying in continual contact with the Word of God and the Spirit of God. Go to the Bible and find out the truth. Realize that healing belongs to you and stand in faith for it. When Satan tries to crowd your mind with dark thoughts about your life being cut short, rebuke them. Replace those thoughts with the promises of God.
God didn’t make your physical body to fail. He made your physical body to sustain itself when given the right food and the right conditions. Most sickness is self-induced by living and eating wrong. It’s our responsibility to eat the right kinds of food, exercise and rest. If symptoms linger or your healing doesn’t readily manifest, check to see if you are walking in love and obeying God. By spending time in the Word of God we can have so much life flowing out of us sickness and disease can’t even get close to us!
