“Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died.  His eyes were not dim nor his natural vigor diminished.”  Deut. 34:7

Many people associate age with sickness, weakness, and mental deterioration.   It was not so with Moses.  He was 120 years old and his vision was still good and his body and mind strong.  I celebrated birthday number 62 last week and entered into what we call the “social security generation.”  I had mixed feelings.  I know what the Word said about Moses, and I know what the world says.

All the promises in the Bible are mine.  Moses was under the old covenant and had wonderful health and vigor.  He just went to be with the Lord.  I choose to claim that promise and not what the world offers–sickness, weakness, mental deterioration.  I received a beautiful card from Jerry and Denise Adamson that read, “And, in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count.  It’s the life in your years!”  Lord, let Your life shine through me.
