For Length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.

September 15, 2009
One of my favorite sections in the bible is in Proverbs chapter 3. I've been endeavoring for a long time on working the section on 'not leaning to my own understanding' . Plus if Christ doesn't come back for a decade or two or more, then I want to live as long as possible, in good health.

This section of scripture, along with others promises good health, long life and other benefits when we keep our hearts turned towards Him. Here are a few verses along these lines.


Proverbs 3:1-5 KJV


   My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:
   For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
   Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
   So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
   Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
   In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.


First of all, covering an OT: if we are trusting in the Lord, and leaning not to our own understanding, then we won't be anxious about any little, or big thing as it's stated in:

Be careful (anxious) for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Back to my topic. Another section that I enjoy reading immensely is the beginning of Psalms. Although, I will say that the more I read Psalms the more I enjoy reading more of it.

Psalm 1:1-3:

  Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
  But his delight is in the law of the Lord: and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Psalm 105:37:

He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.

What's our purpose here on earth? That is the question many folks have had at one time or another in their life. Some pose that question to themselves when they are in their early twenties, some are only out to 'find' theirselves not realizing they are not alone in their quest. Others do their searching when they are much older, maybe some not at all.

Hum... what is our purpose here on earth? Many would say that everyone's purpose here is differen...
