Lately every morning, I look in the mirror and then ask God to give me a desire of my heart, and that is to not grow old. I asked Him to give me wise actions that would keep me young.
I started realizing God loves us so much that He wants an inseparable relationship with us. And that can be fulfilled forever in Heaven. God made our physical bodies as temporary ‘tents’ for our souls. God longs for us to be with Him where sin does not interfere. Each day that the human body gets older means it is a day closer to being ultimately close to our Heavenly Father.
So God gave me some wisdom from His Word today because I simply asked. Here it is~
1) Beauty fades but God’s Word is forever alive and active! So, to keep youthfulness, I will speak and do God’s Word.
1 Peter 1:
24 As the Scriptures say,
“People are like grass;
their beauty is like a flower in the field.
The grass withers and the flower fades.
25 But the word of the Lord remains forever.”
And that word is the Good News that was preached to you.
2) I will obey God’s commands because it renews my life.
40 I long to obey your commandments!
Renew my life with your goodness.
