Psalm 91:16 With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.

There’s been this debate amongst believers regarding how many years God promised us on earth. Some believe God promised us 120 years according Genesis 6:3 which states, then the LORD said, “My Spirit will not contend with humans forever, for they are mortal; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.” Others believe God promised us between 70 and 80 years according to Psalm 90:10 which states, as for the days of our life, they contain seventy years, Or if due to strength, eighty years, Yet their pride is but labor and sorrow; For soon it is gone and we fly away. The remaining believers believe at any time, God can take us. 

So who’s correct? Our faith is correct. 

Jesus said in Matthew 9:29, Then He touched their eyes, saying, “It shall be done to you according to your faith.” Although He was referring to healing in this particular verse, the principle remains consistent throughout scripture. 

So if a person has faith to live 120 years and they’re following the promptings of the Holy Spirit to live a long healthy life, it shall be done unto them. Likewise, if a person has faith to live 80 years, let it be done according to their faith. For those who don’t have a specific age and they’re leaving the years of their life up to fate, that’s an area where they chose not to activate their faith.

Don’t debate or get upset because someone else desires to live a long or not long enough life. It’s there life and the longevity of their life is totally up to their faith. Whatever we consider to be long life, God promised to save and satisfy us.
