I believe God gives us the desires of our hearts because our desires are in alignment with what He desires for each of us. God owns our spirits and bodies, He created them. He desires more than anything for us to renew our minds and be in good health even as our souls are prospering. As our souls prosper our bodies will too.
We need these vessels of clay to be strong and healthy to take us to the promises of the Lord. And we need to constantly hear the word of God and take actions of faith for our lifespan of 120 years. If you cannot see it or believe that you can live healthy, long, strong and not die prematurely while you live in your body, then start hearing the word of God so that faith can come and you can release your faith.
Oh, I believe what I am doing naturally like making healthy food choices, taking my supplements, getting the proper rest my body needs and exercising at least 3-5 times a week will help keep me on the path of the 120 lifespan. As well as, speaking God's word over myself rather than death talk.
Read it for yourself in Genesis 6:3 what God says about His breath in you from The Message Bible... Then God said, “I’m not going to breathe life into men and women endlessly. Eventually they’re going to die; from now on they can expect a life span of 120 years.”
So now do you see why it is important to have the desire to be in good health and expect to live long? There are a lot of things that you and the Holy Spirit have to accomplish while you are in your body for 120 years. Just imagine within 120 years how many disciples you can go make in all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. You will then teach these newbie disciples to listen, obey and trust all the principles from scripture that the Holy Spirit has taught you. Get going today by starting right where you are and thank God for your body, the home where the Holy Spirit lives, rests and moves through your members.
Decree It: I desire to be in good health and prosper even as my soul is prospering. My thoughts and actions are in agreement with the word of God and with the Holy Spirit. With long life, my God is satisfying me with 120 years of life and showing me His great salvation.
