As a believer, the length of your life isn’t defined by your family history. It’s defined by the written WORD of God. So set your faith on living out your full scriptural life span. Keep going strong and growing in the anointing until you’ve lived to a biblically old age and then shout your way to glory having lived a truly long and satisfying life. Here are some points to get you there:
God’s definition of long life is a minimum of 120 years.
Genesis 6:3: “And the Lord said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.”
Youth renewal is a benefit of your covenant with God.
Psalm 103:5: “Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
Healing is always God’s will.
Luke 5:12-13: “A man who was full of leprosy saw Jesus; and he fell on his face and implored Him, saying, ‘Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.’ Then He put out His hand and touched him, saying, ‘I am willing; be cleansed.’” (New King James Version)
Jesus never turned down anyone who asked for healing.
Luke 6:19: “And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all.” (NKJV)
Because God’s own life is in your spirit you can release it by faith and let it flow.
Proverbs 4:23: “Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life.” (New American Standard Bible)
