LONG LIFE AND PROSPERITY
Genesis 24:1 ERV "Abraham lived to be a very old man. The Lord blessed him and everything he did."
According to estimates, as at 2013, only about 3% of our population are 65 years old and above, and life expectancy at birth is 52.46 years. Also, the Bureau of Statistics says that about 112 million Nigerians are living below the poverty line.
What the above means is that many of us are living poor and dying young; including Christians! But that's certainly not the will of God for us. He said in Psalms 91:16, "I will give my followers a long life and show them my power to save.” Hallelujah!
Just like papa Abraham, God has blessed us. Long life is ours; we're going to live to see our children's children in Jesus' name! We'll live long in good health, enjoying the goodness of our God. Say Amen!
