Among our covenant rights as sons of God is long life. you must see it, believe God for it and decree it. It is not just long life but with divine health and enjoying all there is to enjoy as children of God. We determine our own destiny by ourselves, God has given us everything freely to enjoy but we still have a duty to claim it as our covenant right; Genesis 6:3 “And Jehovah said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, in his erring; he is flesh. Yet his days shall be a hundred and twenty years”; Psalm 90:10 “The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by strength they are fourscore years, yet their pride is labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away”. From the two verses quoted above, one said 120years for man and the other said 70. Genesis’ authorship is credited to Moses and he lived 120years while Psalm’s authorship is credited to David who lived for 70years. The lesson is both got what they confessed.

On the contrary, God cannot covenant you long life and thus be living a reckless life. I know a man very strong at heart and sharp in mind but his flesh was weak. He destroyed his flesh with drugs, alcohol and other vices, he eventually died untimely. Whatever is killing your flesh such as hard drugs, alcohol, bad hygiene, bad diet, immorality etc. must be avoided for the covenant of long life to fully work in such a life that desire the covenant.

V 15-16 “He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation”.


Prayer point: I decree that I shall not die untimely but live to declare the good works of the Lord in the land of the living in Jesus’ name.
