A healthy and long life is the heritage of every believer. Salvation is a complete package; we are not just saved from sin, we are also saved from destruction. The word of God promises us long life, and there are powerful Bible verses that we can use to pray for long life.
We are in a season where there have been so many deaths, and this is not just to do with the global pandemic; so many people have died of unrelated deaths to the current pandemic. It’s almost like there has been an unleashing of a spirit of death over the world.
As believers, we need to remember what the word says and stand on the word. The fact that we know so many people that have died does not mean we will die too. The word of God still remains true that God’s plan and purpose for us is to live a long and healthy life.
He says in His word that He will satisfy us with long life, not just long life but long, healthy and full lives.
There are many Bible verses to support that God wants us to live a long and healthy life. Here I will be sharing 10 powerful Bible verses to pray for long life.
Why do we need to pray for long life ?
1. It is God’s plan
God’s plan is for us to live long and not die prematurely. The evidence for this can be found in God’s word. God’s original intention is for us to live long and to fulfil all that He has ordained for us to do.
And i will give you long full livesExodus 23:26b NLT
2. It is our covenant right
Jesus defeated death when He died and rose again. The Bible recorded that Jesus destroyed the one who had the power of death, which is the devil. And by doing this, He delivered us His children from the fear of death ( Hebrews 2:14-15)
3. The devil wants to rob us of our rights
The one way the devil robs us is by inputting fear into us. The fear of death is crippling, just like any other fear. Fear has torment, but faith in God’s promises librates.
What does the Bible say about long life
The Bible is full of wonderful promises. It is not just enough to know what the Bible says; it’s the application of the Word that will yield results. When we meditate on God’s promises and receive a revelation of truth, Faith is built in us ! And no matter what’s going on around us, holding on to the word of faith will deliver us from every fear and give us the confidence that we will not die before our time.
