"The fear of the Lord prolongs days, But the years of the wicked will be shortened."
Proverbs 10:27 NKJV

There is a story in the Bible of two sons of Eli the priest who ministered to the Lord in Shiloh. They did despicable and shameful things in the house of God. They did not show reverence for the Lord. They desecrated the sacrifices of God and the tabernacle of the Lord.

The fear of the Lord was not in them. They treated the ministry of the priesthood with contempt and despised the Lord by so doing. But you can not dishonor the Lord and expect life to esteem you highly. Finally God's judgement time came and the sentence was obvious. Through the prophet, the Lord said to Eli, "...And all the descendants of your house shall die in the flower of their age" (1 Samuel  2:33). Those who do not fear the Lord will die young.

It is the fear of the Lord that prolongs your days. Jesus feared the Lord, and even though He was cut off for our sins, but because of His fear of the Lord, He survived it and He prolonged His days. "...He shall see His seed, He shall prolong His days, And the pleasure of the Lord shall prosper in His hand." (Isaiah 53:10 NKJV). Jesus lives today. He is alive forever because of His reverential fear of the Lord.

Choose the fear of the Lord today. Dying, especially young is not a promise. It is not God's will.  God wants to satisfy you with long life. In fact He wants you to live forever. The fear of the Lord is the only way to prolong your days on earth.

I will live forever because I tremple at God's Word.
