"But the Lord said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." (1Samuel 16:7)
*If they only knew that 100, 200 and even 300 years old was not elderly back in the Bible days, would they still say they are old at age 50 or 60?
"Noah lived a total of 950 years, then he died." (Genesis 9:29)
*If they only knew it's not youth that makes us flourish, but being rooted and grounded in Christ, would they disregard the number of their ages and bask in His Presence?
"And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bring forth fruit in his season." (Psalm 1:3) (Also, Psalm 92:12-14 & Isaiah 40:28-31)
*If they only knew the true source of youth and vitality isn't in a number or a birthdate, but in basking in the Lord's Presence, relying on Christ and growing in His Spirit, would they THEN seek to find the joy of the Lord for their strength, rather than youth?
"...…...for the joy of the Lord is your strength." (Nehemiah 8:10)
