Three powerful and positive promises from the Lord that will bless your heart and encourage you to keep going strong for the Lord even in old age:
1. You will bear fruit.
2. You will stay fresh.
3. You will stay green.
1. You will bear fruit:
It is not about how young or how old you are but how available to God you are. The more time you spend with Jesus in prayer, reading the Bible and doing His will the more you will want to serve God, and the more and more fruit you will bear for God.
2. You will stay fresh:
Your walk with the Lord will always be fresh, never stale. You will always maintain a cutting edge with your testimony and in your ministry as you continue to follow Jesus with all your heart. Each and every day you will be filled with a fresh anointing of the Holy Spirit.
3. You will stay green:
You will flourish and blossom as you graze on fresh pasture everyday in God’s word. In your life there will always be green shoots of hope everywhere. Your Life in Jesus will always be green and lush with the things of the Holy Spirit.
Someone once told me, with a smile on their face, “As you grow older the more precious and priceless you become. You get silver in your hair, you get gold in your teeth, you get stones in your kidneys, you get lead in your feet, and you get gas in your stomach.” But no matter how your body feels, the powerful, precious promises from God’s word will keep you feeling young at heart. You can be examples of faith, fathers and mothers to young Christians and still stay strong in the Lord and the power of His might, and say with a heart full of faith, “Give me this mountain, for God is with me and I shall surely take it and win the victory!”
My friend, Moses was eighty years old when he led the people out of Egypt. Caleb was eighty when he said, full of life and energy, “Give me this mountain!” Never let the world hold you back when they hear how old you are. Take hold of the promises of God and enjoy life in God as our text for today says in Psalm 92:14 (NIV), “They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green.”
God bless you my friend,Pastor Matthew.
