My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands; For length of days and long life And peace they will add to you.
We live in a world that is suffering with a tremendous lack of peace. Perhaps you’re concerned about the chaos you see happening all around you. You’re wondering about the indecision of leaders and what direction our future holds. Today, God’s Word promises if you remember His commandments and do what He asks you to do, you are going to have length of days, long life, and peace. You can be supremely convinced that if you do God’s will in your life, you can have perfect peace that God is a problem solver, and everything is going to be all right.
His Word also says you will have “long life,” which is God’s promise that you will get to enjoy your years of living, not just live long. But what does it mean to have “length of days?” A life is made up of decades and years, but days are made up of hours. When you have a “length of day,” God is saying that whatever you put your hands to in a day’s work, God will pour His anointing upon it, and He will give you progress. Rather than struggle in your own strength, when you submit yourself to God’s Word, whatever you put your hands to is going to prosper.
