Insurance Plans

Thought For The Week 189 By Val Warsop

As I arrived at my 50th birthday, I was astonished by the plethora of mail that flooded my letterbox; different companies all offering me the ‘best’ life insurance at ‘the most attractive’ prices, and especially selected for the over 50’s!  “How do they know my birthday?” I asked myself naively!  I’m much wiser these days.  I know that each year I will be pestered to ‘sign up’, and there will be blatant offers of a bigger eventual pay-out if I get in before the big day, and they know exactly how old I’m going to be!

Whilst I believe it’s important to be prepared for the end of life [I do have a funeral plan], my insurance is not with companies of this world, but with the Creator of this world.  My heart sings with the Psalmist, “My help comes from [Yahweh], the Maker of heaven and earth” [Psalm 121:1].  What a place of security in which to find oneself, where every need is sourced from the compassionate, generous heart of an Omnipotent Provider!  Psalm 121 outlines a care-plan second to none; to start with its ‘round-the-clock’, since Yahweh not only never sleeps, but He doesn’t need naps, either [v4]!  Then there’s His constant Presence, watching over us [v5], and the comfort of His shadow, shielding us from the searing heat of life.  He will allow nothing to harm us [v7], protecting us from all kinds of evil, and watching over all our comings and goings [v8].

It’s a luxury package of incomparable care and protection, and none of us could actually afford it!  However, we can activate it.  Speaking to His people, Yahweh said, “Because you love me, I will rescue you. I will protect you because you know my name.” [Psalm 91:14; God’s Word Translation] As far as I can see, loving Yahweh and knowing His Name, activates the care package; there are no strings attached.  Even though He doesn’t promise there will never be trouble, He does promise to be with us when it comes! [v15] He keeps the entire universe running impeccably, we can trust Him to take care of us!
