The Secret of Longevity!
“My son, do not forget my law, but let your heart keep my commands; For the length of days. And years of life and peace they will add to you.” Proverbs 3:1-2
Scientists have extended some life through various interventions with God’s wisdom in recent years. In some cases, this has increased their lifespan by a few percentages. However, while these discoveries are groundbreaking, there is still much to learn about the secret to longevity. What works for one species might not work for another, and various factors are likely involved. However, the Bible is full of wisdom that applies to every area of our lives, including how we can live long and fulfilling lives.
Today’s Bible verses are exceptional and an urgent reminder of the divine’s duty because of its overarching influence on our destiny; it’s drawing our attention to something that cannot be substituted, exchanged, or earned. There are no other means but to enjoy a sustained and prosperous life. But, remember and Know full well that these statements are general principles rather than promises.
John 15:10 says, “If you keep My commandments, you will remain in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and remain in His love.”
It is a well-known fact that a student’s success or failure is directly proportionate to their preparation and God’s grace. If it were a promise, the one who succeeded would have to have found favor in God’s eyes with little or no preparation to grant such success. However, that is not the case. With the crowning of God’s labor, one’s preparation as a student will do the magic of coming out extraordinary. As success has rules and regulations in the kingdom, likewise, our health and longevity have rules that must be followed by all who follow God’s instructions.
Living by God’s laws brings us closer to Him and allows us to experience His blessings. These blessings include a long life filled with peace and happiness. So, the next time you are looking for guidance on living a good life, look no further than the Bible. God’s commands are essential, and His principles are simple: either you keep God’s commands and walk in his statutes and live a long life on earth, or you don’t bother keeping God’s commandments and statutes and live otherwise. I pray, may the Lord bless you with good health and long life in Jesus’ name. Amen. However, remember what Deuteronomy 5:33 said, “You shall walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, that you may live, and that it may go well with you, and that you may live long in the land that you shall possess.
1. Jesus, my life is yours; I commit everything to you and obey your commands.
2. In Jesus Christ, my family and I will enjoy long and pleasant life for your glory. Amen.
