“But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.” Ecclesiastes 8:13 (KJV)
Enjoying long life as a child of God comes with responsibility because it has high spiritual impact on your life as a believer. The opening scripture throws more light on how to enjoy long life. The child of God who seeks to enjoy long life must disdain wickedness. God hates wickedness, and He is angry at the wicked every day (Psalm 7:11). The wicked do not fear God, so they have become tools in the devil’s hand to perpetuate evil.
Dear beloved, don’t learn the ways of the wicked and short circuit your life. Fear God, and your life will be prolonged. Honor your father and mother, and God will add many days to your life (Ephesians 6:2). Be a vessel that God can use to draw people closer to Christ Jesus. Hallelujah! Be an overcomer!
Prayer Point: Dear Father, thank you for your Word. I choose to shun every act of wickedness today for your righteousness, amen!
