The way the world is right now, everyone is trying to sell me insurance. Where they got my name and address is still a mystery. People I have never heard of are doing they level best to get me to buy insurance. It seems that I supposedly need insurance for everything. Folks, insurance is for only after the fact that something happens to you. Then it doesn’t cover everything. If the insurance company doesn’t want to pay, they don’t cover it. It is and always has been a poor replacement for assurance. Assurance isn’t based upon how much you pay or whether or not if someone is willing to pay. Assurance is based upon faith, trusting and believing. What do you trust in? What do you believe? Where do you put your faith? I always loved the stories of King David of Israel. Before David became king, he was King Saul’s general. He led the army of Israel into battle. God had promised David that one of his descendants would be the Messiah. David believed God and led the children of Israel into battle many times. He would run into the heaviest fighting and fought his way out. The people of Israel would sing songs about David’s exploits. This is assurance, trusting and believing.
Psalm 91: 9 “Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.”
