Psalm 91:16 "With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."
If you abide in the secret place of the Most High as Vs 1 of Psalm 91 says, God has promised to satisfy you with long life and to show you His salvation.
The word Salvation means: deliverance, victory, prosperity and health. I used to worry that I might die young when I was policeman in Ireland and I can remember times when I even would say that. Other young policemen that I had trained with in the Academy had been shot and blown up by the terrorist groups of that time! I have been shot at and almost been killed too, but was somehow protected.
Then in 1967, I was in a major motor crash and the devil almost succeeded in doing what I had been saying, even though I didn't know or understand the power of the words I was speaking at that time. I did get saved in hospital during the 14 months following that accident, and The Lord convicted me about it because my words had almost been brought to pass.
God's Word says that He will satisfy me with long life, so I started replacing my fear words with His Word. I am not old yet but I am now in my mid 70's and still enjoying His protection and provision!
So you need to watch your words. You need to stop saying things like, "This runs in my family." Or "My Father and grandfather had this problem etc."
No! It stops right now! There will be no limitation on you if you dwell in the secret place of the Most High God and say what God says about you.
Proverbs 18:21 "Death and life are in the power of the tongue!"
The Living Bible says, "Men have died for saying the wrong thing!"
Remember Psalm 91:16 "with long life will I satisfy him." To Satisfy means: to satiate or give a long and full life of blessings. When you're satiated, you are completely satisfied and can take no more.
So keep your eyes off everybody else and what they are doing. Stop all the negative talk saying things like: "I know people who died young. I know people who have not been healed."
I have seen people healed, and I know people who have not been healed; but I don't believe in healing because I have seen it. I believe in healing because the Word says it. I would believe in healing even if I had never seen anybody healed.
I have seen people raised up from death so I believe God's Word without question.
Do you understand the difference about saying wrong and fear words?
I believe in God's blessings because I follow His Word. I would believe in His blessings even if everybody I knew were in need.
God's Word is God's promise and God's will, and He cannot lie so I believe God's Word, how about you?
