None of us can escape growing old, we may have surgery, paint the old barns so to speak or even color our hair, but it is not going to change the date on our birth certificates.
Psalm 92 challenges us to learn the art of growing old with grace by living for Our Lord and Our Friend today.
V14: “They shall still bear fruit in old age; they shall be fresh and flourishing”.
Psalm 71, David’s words should inspire and direct anyone who is contemplating how to have a meaningful, satisfying life in later years. David was determined to declare The Lord not only to his own generation, but to later ones as well. Psalm 71 verse 18:
V18: “Now also when I am old, and gray-headed, O God, do not forsake me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to everyone, is to come”.
You can never retire from the things of God, they are eternal, we can all retire from work activities, but with the things of God, we should always be looking for ways to make the Awesomeness of Our Lord and Our Friend, known and available to others, in order to accomplish something significant for Him, because He first loved us, and gave Himself for us.
Never to old or to young, to be excited to share, The Great and Loving God, who created us all for an eternal destiny, with Him.
