Full Coverage

"No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
For He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways."
Psalm 91:10-11 (NKJV) 

There are all kinds of different insurance policies that you can buy.  When you purchase an insurance policy, it will tell you about all of the things that are covered, and what things are not covered by the policy.  The more things you want to have covered by your insurance, the more it will cost you.  The most expensive type of insurance is full coverage insurance, which does what its name says, it covers everything.  It may cost more to have everything covered, but that is the best kind of insurance.

We can read in the New Testament about all that God provided for us through Jesus.  As a part of the New Testament, we have the benefits and blessings of the Old Testament, and more.  In the Old Testament, God promised His people safety and protection, and that applies to us today as well.  In Psalm 91:10-11, God promises that no evil or plague will come to us, that is talking about full coverage!  God goes on to say that He gives angels charge over us to keep us, to protect us, in all of our ways, in everything we do, and everywhere that we go.

People might ask, “If all of this is really true, then why do we still have problems?”  The simple answer is because we still have the devil to deal with, and if we don’t know what we are covered for, we can’t take advantage of it.  Our response should be that it is great to see what God’s Word tells us belongs to us, and is there anything we need to do to activate this “policy”?  God has provided full coverage for us, and that is the best insurance policy of all!  We need to take advantage of everything that God has provided for us.
