00649 - You Decide When You Will Go

We are called to live by faith, entrusting every aspect of our existence, including our health and lifespan, to God's sovereign will. James 4:15 (NKJV) advises, "Instead you ought to say, 'If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.'" By living a life of faith, we acknowledge that our earthly journey is part of a divine plan to serve His purposes and glorify His name.

It's about cherishing each moment, using our gifts to better those around us, and maintaining a spirit of gratitude and trust, regardless of our physical condition. By doing so, we experience the abundance of walking in God's ways.

Being 'peacefully promoted to heaven' reflects a serene transition from this life to the next, culminating in a life well-lived in faith. It is the ultimate homecoming for a believer, a transition filled with hope and joy, free from fear or regret.


Be in faith for your latter years as much as you are for your life.


Father, help me to be productive and end my earthly journey well.
