“You have decided the length of our lives. You know how many months we will live, and we are not given a minute longer.” Job‬ ‭14:5‬ ‭NLT‬‬

“The Lord gives both death and life; He brings some down to the grave but raises others up.

The Lord makes some poor and others rich; He brings some down and lifts others up. He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump. He sets them among princes, placing them in seats of honor.

For all the earth is the Lord’s, and He has set the world in order. He will protect His faithful ones, but the wicked will disappear in darkness.

No one will succeed by strength alone. Those who fight against the Lord will be shattered. He thunders against them from heaven; the Lord judges throughout the earth.

He gives power to His king; He increases the strength of His anointed one.” 1. Samuel‬ ‭2:6-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬

IN OTHER WORDS,

God is in control of everything! Yes, even the number of days that we will live on this earth are ordained by God. He has the power to shorten or prolong it.
