Long Life

There are many places in the Bible where we are promised long life. In the book of Genesis God promised us 120 years (Gen 6:3) and he reaffirmed this in Exodus chapter 23 and verse 26 (KJV): "the number of thy days I will fulfill”. Again, in Psalm chapter 91 and verse 16 we read: "with long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."

So, what can we do to live a long life? We are taught that: "the fear of the Lord prolongs days" (Prov 10:28) and that to obey God’s law and commandments will add: “length of days, and long life and peace” (Prov 3:2). The men (or women) that seek wisdom will also see long life (Prov 3:16) and in Deuteronomy (Deut 5:16) we were commanded to honor our parents with the promise that we would the enjoy a long and prosperous life.

These are all great promises but in order to receive them we have to believe them and receive them by faith. If you feel you just cannot believe them then spend time reading them over and over and speaking them out loud till you get a revelation of them and have faith in them (till you get them in your heart and not just your mind; Rom 10:17). God's word is powerful, never fails but always achieves his objectives (in other words it gets the job done) (Isa 55:11). His promises are yes and amen (2 Cor 1:20).
