Completely Covered

22 01 2008

The other day I saw an article called ‘The Doom Boom’ about how pop culture is increasingly interested in apocalyptic themes.  Evidently people enjoy being scared by various portrayals of the end of life as we know it.

Even if it is not the end of the world, we often go through life-altering events that leave us feeling slightly unsettled and nearly paranoid.

Aware that we would encounter heavyweight bouts with impending doom, God detailed the comprehensive coverage of His insurance plan for us in the Amplified version of Isaiah 41:10:

“Fear not, there is nothing to fear, for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you, yes; I will uphold you with my victorious right hand of rightness and justice.”

The end of the world may make for a fascinating book or movie plot, but that or any other catastrophic event in this world doesn’t have to be frightening when we’re doing our best to (BE)TTER by staying close to God. Knowing we have nothing to fear brings a reassurance what we are covered and quiet confidence comes from knowing “He’s got the whole world in His hands.”

Our better lives are in better hands than Allstate’s.
