How to Renew Your Youth Like the Eagle

How To Renew Your Youth Like the Eagle


It was the year 1513.

Spanish explorer Ponce de Leon was in search of the legendary Fountain of Youth. Many others have made similar attempts since. Those who don’t have time to travel the world in search of the elusive fountain are hoping for a miracle drug or procedure to lengthen their lives and improve their health, while reducing the effects of aging.

While the world searches in vain, the true secret to longevity is easy to find. The address? Psalm 103:5. There, you’ll find the true Source of a long, healthy life, the One “who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s” (NKJV).

If you’re a believer in Jesus, you don’t have to slowly deteriorate in your mind and body, walking hunched over, suffering from age-related ailments, and living under the care of others. You don’t have to die young!

The Word of God has promised you long life, strength and health all your days. So, let’s do it. We’re here to help you learn how to renew your youth like the eagle, so you can live a long, strong and healthy life!

1. Focus On Your Spiritual DNA

“With long life I will satisfy him.” –Psalm 91:16 (NKJV)

Kenneth Copeland likes to say, “I plan to die young…at a very old age.” At 84 years old and showing no signs of slowing down, he’s well on his way!

But it wasn’t always that way.

When Kenneth was 69 years old, the devil started reminding him of something—his physical DNA. He reminded him that almost all his relatives had died in their 70s. Brother Copeland even started to see the signs and feel the symptoms of those genes.

“Physically, I was going downhill,” he says.

As he talked with the Lord about it, the Lord immediately said to him, You’re paying attention to your natural DNA. In My Word it says you’re born again not of corruptible seed, but by incorruptible seed (see 1 Peter 1:23). God continued and said, You’ve got My spiritual DNA. I’m your Father.

The minute Brother Copeland chose to focus on his spiritual DNA over his natural DNA, everything changed. He’ll tell you today that he’s stronger than he was 25 years ago. He has no intention of slowing down—he’s going for the 120-year promise!

Spiritually, he has the DNA to do it—so do you and so does every other born-again child of God!

As people of faith, we all have great spiritual genes. If you need evidence, just take a look at Abraham. He lived to be 175. According to Romans 4:11(KJV), he’s “the father of all them that believe.” So, longevity runs in our spiritual family.

It’s not the kind of longevity that just involves a lot of years, either. It’s not the kind that leaves you weak, worn-out and sitting in a nursing home. No, it’s the kind that comes from having your youth renewed.

Make a quality decision to lay claim to that heritage. Follow the example of Abraham and focus on your spiritual DNA, knowing that, because you have the same covenant of BLESSING, if you do what he did, you’ll get the same results.

2. Change the Way You Look At Death

“Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died, yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone.” –Deuteronomy 34:7 (NIV)

You don’t have to stop living at 70 or 80 years of age.

God never meant for us to die young. It’s His will for us to live out the full number of our days.

Traditionally, Psalm 90:10 has been quoted in regard to man’s life expectancy as 70 years, or if by reason of strength, 80. But what most people don’t realize is that this psalm is credited to Moses, who is interceding with God to remove the curse, which made it necessary for every Israelite over 20 years of age (when they rebelled against God at Kadesh-barnea) to die before reaching the Promised Land (Numbers 14:26-35). Moses says most of them are dying at 70 years of age. This number has often been mistaken as a set span of life for all mankind. It was not intended to refer to anyone except those Israelites under the curse during that particular 40 years. Seventy years never has been the average span of life for humanity.

Moses himself lived to be 120 years old. So don’t have the mindset that you should only live to be 70. What God actually said about man’s life span is found in Genesis 6:3: “And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.”

Think about it. That means at 60 you are just middle-aged! That’s not the time to start slowing down. Be determined to enjoy to the fullest the many productive years the Lord has promised you.

3. Take Natural Steps, too

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.” –1 Corinthians 6:19 (NIV)

Some people think, We’re not under the law anymore, so we can eat whatever we want.

Well, not if you want to live to 120 years!

We have to care for our spirit, soul and body to live long and strong. We can’t eat junk food and never exercise, and then think we can live long and strong. We are called to feed ourselves physical, mental and spiritual food to properly care for ourselves—spirit, soul and body.

Another area that cannot be dismissed if you want to enjoy long life is unforgiveness.

Forgiveness is a spiritual law. It is not optional, and it’s a key to long life. You can eat right and exercise, but if you’re not keeping the law of love, it will cut your life short. Unforgiveness is poison to the human spirit and even the human brain.

It has been scientifically proven that fear and unforgiveness damage the brain. The brain is the only physical organ that gets better with age, but it will decline if it’s being fed wrong—physically, intellectually and spiritually.

On top of that, fear and unforgiveness have been linked to countless diseases. So, eat right, exercise, obey God and walk in love. When you do, your youth will renew like the eagle’s.

4. Think and Speak Words of Life and Health

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue.” –Proverbs 18:21 (KJV)

Well, I am getting older, you know.

Have you said those words—about creaking joints, a sore back, forgetting things or not seeing as clearly?

If you want to renew your youth like the eagle’s, you first must renew your mind to the Word of God, and then think and speak words of life and health.

Every day, say, “My youth is renewed like the eagle’s. I am so healthy and strong. My blood pressure is perfect, my cholesterol is low, my thyroid functions perfectly, my eyesight and hearing get better every day, my memory is sharp,” and so on. Then, don’t let yourself speak otherwise throughout the day.

It’s time to be like Bartimaeus and throw off the garment that is trying to define you. Throw off the garment of aging, feeling and acting old. Throw it off! That isn’t you. The Healer is here. He said He’ll renew your youth like the eagle’s. You can be 95 years old, and see and hear as well as you ever have, walk as well as you ever have, take care of yourself and be independent just as you always have. Don’t accept anything else.

If you want to live, you have to choose life. To choose life, you choose God. To choose God, you have to choose His words and do things His way. 

If you’ll renew your mind through meditating and speaking the Word, then your spiritual DNA will arrest your physical DNA. Your youth will be renewed!

You don’t have to search the world over to find a way to renew your youth—it’s available to you here and now! Youth renewal is included in THE BLESSING of Abraham, which is yours in Christ Jesus. Put your faith to work right now and say, “I receive the benefit of my youth being renewed today!”

Live in the Goodness of God

7 Ways To Live in the Goodness of God


God is a good God.

It seems simple, obvious and we know it’s scriptural.

God is the giver of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17).

God takes pleasure in your whole-life prosperity (Psalm 35:27).

Jesus came that you might have life abundantly (not lacking, not sick, not broke, not lonely) (John 10:10).

We could list dozens more verses with the same message (find 65 Verses About the Goodness of God HERE)—God is good—and He wants to pour out His goodness on you and give you the best life imaginable.

So why don’t His people believe it?

No matter how much you love God, you may be limiting what He can do in your life by believing—maybe even somewhere deep down—that His goodness doesn’t apply to you, at least not in every situation. You can change that!

Here, we’re helping you discover 7 Ways To Live in the Goodness of God today and every day for the rest of your life.

1. See God as 100% Good

“Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good.” –1 Chronicles 16:34 (ESV)

God isn’t just mostly good or sometimes good and sometimes not. God is 100% good. It’s who He is—He can’t help but be good all the time. Even in His severity and just judgment (Romans 11:22), He is good.

But to keep believers from expecting and receiving the goodness God desires to bestow on them, the devil has worked overtime to convince most people that God is behind all the calamities that take place on this earth. They mistakenly think He’s causing them problems, making them sick, and sending trouble their way. Many people have even been religiously taught that God does those things to punish them or to teach them something.

To live in the goodness of God, you’ve got to push past every religious tradition you’ve heard against it, defy your own doubts, and see God as 100% good.

2. Understand His Goodness Is a Promise

“You will be blessed.” –Deuteronomy 28:3 (AMP)

It might be difficult to see God as good all the time because people change their moods from one day to the next. People can be kind and good to you one day, then mean the next.

God is not a man that He can lie, and He is not a man that He can be anything but good. But there’s more…

We have a covenant with Him (learn more HERE) and that covenant is an unbreakable promise to bestow every part of THE BLESSING on us when we obey Him. When you understand that His goodness is a promise, you won’t question it ever again.

3. Become an Ambassador of His Goodness

“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ.” –2 Corinthians 5:20 (ESV)

Of course, God has never intended for us to keep all His goodness to ourselves! We are called to go into all the world, shine the light that is within us, and be a witness of the goodness of God. That’s why, when Jesus walked the earth, He was Anointed to do good.

So, as we receive His BLESSINGS in every area of our lives—spirit, soul, body, financially and socially—we are to share those BLESSINGS with others. That’s part of living in the goodness of God. And if you’ve ever had the amazing blessing of sharing His goodness with others, you know it probably blesses you more than it does them!

Jesus told us that those who believe in Him will do the same miraculous works He did, and even greater works! We are called to go about doing good and healing all who are oppressed of the devil.

God is ready and able to do those things through us. He just needs us to stop being so caught up in the natural things of this life and start paying more attention to His leadings. He needs for us to become ambassadors of His goodness. The more we do that, the more people will see God’s goodness through us and come running to Him!

4. Expect His Goodness to Manifest

“I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.” –Psalm 27:13 (NIV)

Here’s where it gets real.

If you believe that everyone gets sick to die or that God could put some disease on you at any moment to teach you something, you’re not expecting His goodness to manifest. You’re expecting the devil!

And by the way, God doesn’t use sickness to teach people, just as you wouldn’t make your own kid sick to teach him something. He uses His Word! He also uses His still, small voice and the Holy Spirit.

If you need money to pay the bills and you’re up all night panicking, stressing, crying…why? How would you feel if your children—under your care in your home where you’ve always fed them, clothed them and blessed them—panicked whenever they had a need? But kids don’t usually do that, do they? They EXPECT you to care for them. They treat you like they can count on you because you have a reputation of being good to them.

Well, God has a reputation, too, and it’s far better than any of ours. Expect His goodness to manifest in your life—EVERY part of your life. Blessings and miracles don’t come without faith—that’s simple spiritual law. So, you’ve got to get your faith up to the boiling point until it overflows. That’s how you will begin to live in the goodness of God.

5. Call On His Goodness

“I will call upon the LORD.” –Psalm 18:3 (KJV)

When you’re expecting the goodness of God to manifest, you’ll actively call on His goodness. That means, when a need arises, you aren’t looking for answers everywhere but Him first—no—you run to the throne, and you call on His goodness.

What are you calling on?

His promises. Those promises we talked about that are included in THE BLESSING. So if you need protection, you’re calling on His goodness that promises you protection (Find out how to build a Psalm 91 house HERE.) You’re reminding Him of His Word because He loves that, and He responds to it (Isaiah 43:26, 55:11).

If you need healing, you remind Him (and yourself) of His promises for healing. And the same thing for finances. Whatever you need in your life, there’s a promise that covers it—go find it!

Living in the goodness of God means calling on His goodness and doing so knowing you’ll see it manifest in your life.

6. Step Out of the Way

“Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat; I am.”—Mark 8:34-35 (MSG)

The goodness of God is the great overcomer of the curse. The curse is anything that causes darkness in our lives—sickness, disease, poverty, lack, depression, addiction, strife, loneliness or anything else like them. The goodness of God—or THE BLESSING—is a light, and once a light is switched on, all darkness disappears instantly. That’s what you can expect in your life.

But…as long as you’re in fear, doubt, worry or unbelief, you’re in the way. A lack of faith will keep the switch from being turned on and THE BLESSING of God from permeating your situation.

Faith in His goodness makes way for healing in your body, mind and emotions. It clears the path of every hindrance or delay.

7. Have Peace in the Goodness of God

“And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” –Philippians 4:7 (NKJV)

The goodness of God doesn’t always fall in your lap at the exact moment you would like. It’s always there and it is always operating in your life, but sometimes, when God is working some things out in you, you won’t see a manifestation right away. When you’ve “arrived” at a place of peace (which is also patient), you’ll know your manifestation is close at hand. You’ll have peace in the goodness of God, and you’ll never be shaken.

Now that you know these seven ways to live in the goodness of God, take them and run with them! Don’t hesitate. Why waste another minute of your life staying in the same place? Every good and perfect gift comes from Him and is yours!
