1 My son, do not forget my law,
But let your heart keep my commands;
2 For length of days and long life
And peace they will add to you
(Proverbs 3:1-2 NKJV)
The Bible tells us how to live long life. Have you ever had one of those days where it seems like whatever you do just doesn’t flow. Or worse, you running so hard all day, it doesn’t seem like you can accomplish all the set out to accomplish that day? There is a way to fix that.
For myself, I noticed that when I don’t have my time with the Lord in the morning (some people pray in the evenings which is okay too) that my heart is not set. Proverbs 3 gives us the answer to how to set up your day.
Verse 1 says to remember His law and keep His commands. What are we talking about here? We’re talking about the Word of God. When you take the time to read the Word of God and pray each day, you are setting your day up for effectiveness and success that only God can give. There are two things that come out of this. Verse two tells us-
- Length of Days
- Long Life
What exactly does that mean? Will God give you more than 24 hours? No. But God will help you do more in 24 hours than any unbeliever or person out of fellowship with God.
It also says you will get long life. What exactly does that mean? It means when you get into the Word and pray each day, God will give you more time on this earth, to do more. Praise God! Isn’t that amazing? When you get into the Word and follow God, you will live longer. Praise God! I want to live longer. I am planning for 120 years and a full life. How about you?
