Long Life Will He Give You



October 2, 2020


I learned a very valuable lesson about studying the Bible that has keep me out of danger of using a scripture out of context. When the Lord points out a verse to you, you can bet on the verse before it and after it shed light onto the subject. Like yesterday’s verse found in Proverbs 3:5 & 6.


Verse 5: "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."


Look at verses 1-4 and then verses 7 and 8.


Proverbs 3:1-4, 7-8

1 "My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:

2, "For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.

3 "Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

4 "So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.


7 "Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

8 "It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.


The promises of God are true because God can not lie. So trusting in Him comes with a promise! Can I get an Amen? Long life and peace, that just makes me want to shout! Then it says in verse 7 to put away evil and verse 8 says it shall be health to my body. Praise God!


Father, I thank You for the steps that You have set before us to help us to see more clearly what You have planed for our good. It's Your favor I look for every day. In Jesus' name, Amen.


Blessing on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
