So many times I have heard people say that we all have “an appointed day to die” or “our number was up“… it never seemed to make sense to me because there are accidents, murders, war, and terrorism that causes unexpected deaths all the time. This is just another religious saying that people seem to use when they can’t explain things.

The Word of God is clear, that obeying His Commands, walking in Wisdom and living a righteous life will increase your days and years, and walking in sin and disobeying His commands will have your life cut short.

So how many days and years we live seem to be determined more on our lifestyle and obeying God’s Word then anything else. And yes even though we live a righteous life accidents and unexpected drunk drivers still happen… but I also believe there is a protection that comes from living a godly life. I have seen Him protect my family and myself many times and keep us from harm.

So if you want a peaceful, long and enjoyable life read His Word and live according to His commands. Even though tough times happen in life, walking in His ways has made them much easier to bare. Try reading Proverbs all the way through, you will see what I am talking about… look for the thyme’s and the times it talks about Wisdom and Obeying His Word… it will change your life for sure!

My son, don’t forget my teaching, keep my commands in your heart; for they will ADD to you MANY days, YEARS of life and peace. Pro 3:1-2 CJB

For with me (wisdom), your DAYS will be INCREASED YEARS will be ADDED to your life. Pro 9:11 CJB

Listen, my son, receive what I say, and the YEARS of your life will be many. Pro 4:10 CJB

The FEAR of Adonai ADDS length to life, but the years of the wicked are cut short. Pro 10:27 CJB
