“The righteous will flourish like the date palm [long-lived, upright and useful]; they will grow like a cedar in Lebanon [majestic and stable]. Planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God. [Growing in grace] they will still thrive and bear fruit and prosper in old age; They will flourish and be vital and fresh [rich in trust and love and contentment]; [They are living memorials] to declare that the Lord is upright and faithful [to His promises]; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.”
Psalm 92:12-15 (AMP)
Age has a way of bringing wisdom and discernment to us through the years. It has a way of slowing us down, so we don’t get so caught up in the tyranny of the urgent. It helps to mature us. Age brings greater grace and more patience. Age is like a best friend. With that friendship comes wise advice and discernment. With age, we can have more mental and emotional strength, vitality, and productivity, and as the scripture says, even in old age “they will still thrive, bear fruit, and prosper.” They will be vital and fresh, rich in love, trust, and contentment. Listen carefully. Never, never begrudge that every day you are getting older. It happens to all of us but be aware of how you go through the aging process and take careful watch over it.
