The Promise of Life in Excess
”When he calls to me, I will answer him;I will be with him in trouble;I will rescue him and honor him. With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
Everyone today is searching for the promise of a life, in excess even, they desire the promise of a long life. There have always been and will always be people who are trying to eek out an additional one, or five, or ten years. I recently read that billionaires are researching ways to live forever.
There are so many things that can cut a person’s life short. Drugs, alcohol, disease, bad choices, and bad happenings can cause a person’s life to end shorter than it should.
But there is a promise for those who put God first, and that promise has something extra for you.
Not only does God promise you a LONG LIFE, but a life that will be satisfied!
The word satisifed means to have one’s fill; or to have in excess.
That which the rich and powerful are searching for is the easiest thing to find, but it takes giving your life to Jesus… in order to have a life of Him in excess.
Confession: “My life is filled to excess with the Life of God and because I’m made God my hope, I receive the promise of of long, satisfied life!”
