“Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things, so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s”
Youth seldom give a thought to the fact that they will one day be old men, otherwise they would not do some of the things they do to their bodies.
As the years roll on they may suddenly become interested in health issues, when they discover that they are losing what they had taken for granted.
GOD promises that HE as the creator of our bodies can restore our youthful energy WHEN we live for him…. we do not have to accept that we are now too old to do this or that for Him just because we have wasted our youth.
“And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten” Joel 2:25
“And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died; his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated” Deuteronomy 34:7
Contrast that with Numbers 14:29 – 35 ……. the whole congregation was DEAD within the space of forty years EXCEPT for Joshua and Caleb…. which two were JUST AS STRONG as ever….. to lead the armies of the CHILDREN (now fully grown) to VICTORY in the battles recorded in the book of Joshua.
THAT is the power of the LORD…. and today’s youth see no benefit is serving the Holy One ?????
It makes you wonder…. doesn’t it ?
