Psalms 31:1-8 Into Your Hands

           Allstate Insurance Company is known as the ‘good hands people’. Their logo is “You’re in good hands with Allstate.” The company states that they are the company that has been protecting people and the thats most important thing to them for more than 85 years.

          The psalmist today gives credit to God for far better protection coverage than Allstate or any insurance company can offer. God is our rock of refuge when troubles and trials of this life threaten to overwhelm us. God through Jesus is shelter and protection “when the storms of life are raging.” The psalmist reminds us that God knows our anguish and God can and will deliver.

          Ask yourself today, what keeps you from trusting God as your Rock in a weary land and your Shelter in a time of storm? If we believe that God has the whole world in His hands, doesn’t that mean full coverage with no deductibles because our sins were paid in full by Jesus?

        On the cross Jesus said the words of this psalm: “Into your hands I commit my spirit.” Whose coverage are you trusting with your spirit? In whose hands have you committed yourself? Is it your own hands, or the hands of those you consider powerful or more desirable by this world’s standards? Check your policy! Whose coverage is really protecting you and what is most important to you? Whose coverage are you really depending on for deliverance?“
