Forever Young

cb devo feb 13“The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.”  I John 2:17 (NIV)

The fountain of youth – we all desire to live longer and better lives. I have to admit, the thought of aging doesn’t thrill me.  Those gray locks that continue to surface are quickly hidden, and every time I look in the mirror my smile line seems to stay put regardless of my expression.  Oh well, it happens – I’m getting older by the second. While some will seek extreme measures to temporarily halt the signs of aging, scripture reminds us that the man (person) who does the will of God lives forever.  No beauty regiment or exercise plan can compete with that guarantee.  Regardless of our outward bodies, our inner soul can be renewed day by day when we intentionally follow His will.  While our lean muscle mass may deteriorate over time, God’s strength empowers us when we walk in His footsteps.  The more our desires line up with His desires, the greater our impact will be on the people He brings into our lives.  When God’s Spirit infuses and reigns over all our decisions and reactions, He daily produces new life in us. And that influential life continues even when our days on this earth are ended.

“Father help us to seek extreme measures to maximize Your will for our lives even if it means leaving our dreams behind.”

For His Glory
