“With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation” (Psalm 91:16).

Today, the people of the world take so much of tablets and other medicines with the wish to have a long life. But it is God who graciously commands long life. God says, “ By me, your days will be multiplied and years of life will be added to you” (Proverbs 9:11).

One young sister was crying embracing her three small children. The reason was that her husband, who had been admitted in the hospital for some ailment, had died. She was worried about her future. How sad it is for one to die before carrying out the responsibilities and fulfilling the requirements of the family!

Today, you may be with some sort of weakness and sickness. The people of the world who look at you may say that the sickness you suffer is very serious in nature and they may even forecast your death. But never lose your hope. Declare your faith as the Psalmist did saying, “I shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord” (Psalm 118:17). God will mercifully do miracles.

“You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flies by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand” (Psalm 91:5-7). “The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul” (Psalm 121:7).

God has taken all your weaknesses on Him and carried all your sickness on the Cross. So it is not necessary for you to carry them anymore. If you place all your diseases and the weaknesses on God, He will heal you with His stripes (Isaiah 53:5, I Peter 2:24). No factor, over which you fear, is going to happen to you. God is your refuge and strength. All the weaknesses and sickness which you experience today will get eliminated. Did Jesus not come to provide you life and to provide it more abundantly (John 10:10)?

Dear children of God, God destroyed satan who is the authority for death through His death. He is the one to possess the keys for the death and the hade. Though He died, He is alive forevermore. Dear children of God, God will clear all your weaknesses and will bless you with health and strength.

To meditate: “that you may love the Lord your God, that you may obey His voice and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days” (Deuteronomy 30:20).
