Moses was 120 years old when he died, yet his eyesight was clear, and he was as strong as ever, (Deuteronomy 34:7).
As Strong as Ever.
When Moses was 120 years old, it was his time to die. God told him to climb to the top of Mount Nebo, and that’s where he would pass. You would think at his age, Moses would be frail and weak, his knees would hurt, and his eyesight would be poor. You would think he would say, “God, I can’t climb a mountain.” But Moses was still strong as a young man, still healthy when God took him.
One of the names of God in the Scripture is Jehovah Rapha, which means “the Lord your healer.” You may know Him as a Savior, which is great, but He wants you to know Him as a healer as well. Get rid of the notion that as you age, you’re going to get frail, be overcome by sickness, and unable to move. Say “No, thanks” to that. Trust God to keep you strong and healthy, still climbing mountains, still taking new ground, still making the world a better place.
A Prayer for Today.
Father, thank You that You have come into my life as my Savior, as my provider, and as my healer. Thank You for making it so clear that You are Jehovah Rapha, and that it is Your will to heal and restore. I will trust You to keep me strong and healthy, always taking new ground. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
