Your Golden Years (1)

Your Golden Years (1)

“Cast me not off in the time of old age.”                                     Ps 71:9

Sometimes we joke about getting older and say things like, “I’m thirty-nine, and holding,” meaning we don’t want to turn forty and be considered “old.” As long as you have a dream in your heart you will never be old. The Psalmist said: “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread” (Ps 37:25). The main fear about aging is ending up lonely, needy and unwanted. As living costs go up and pensions go down it’s wonderful to be able to say, “My God shall supply all [my] needs” (Php 4:19 NKJV). Your golden years can be the greatest years of your life. All the things you wanted to do when you didn’t have time are now available to you. “I wish I had more time to read.” Now you can. “I wish I had more time to spend in prayer.” Now you can. So many things: travel, ministry, grandchildren, hobbies, visiting friends; now you have time to enjoy them. Job 5:26 speaks of going to the grave in a full age. Judges 8:32 speaks of a good old age. Genesis 25 speaks of old men and women, full of years. You can die—full of years! That word “full” means filled to the brim and running over. How good is that? Senior citizen, God has a word for you today: “Even to your old age…even to gray hairs I will carry you!” (Isa 46:4 NKJV). Do you remember the commercial for Maxwell House coffee, “Good to the last drop”? Make that your life’s motto!
