ITWGC25: Lifespring!s In Touch With God’s Character
“He who watches over you…”
Here in the United States, one of the largest insurance companies is Allstate Insurance. I remember when I was a boy, the TV spokesman was a very distinguished looking gray haired fellow. At the end of every commercial, after telling about how strong and reliable and friendly the Allstate company was, he would turn the palms of his hands upward and put his hands together, forming a kind of cup. You know what I mean. Then the camera would zoom in on his cupped hands, and he would say, “You’re in good hands with Allstate.”
Of course the idea they wanted to convey is that Allstate would keep you safe, that they would protect you.
To this day, the logo for Allstate bears the words “You’re In Good Hands”.
Now, as good as Allstate may or may not be, and this is not an endorsement for Allstate insurance, there is One whose hands I would rather be in.
In Psalms chapter 121, we read,
I lift up my eyes to the hills, where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip, he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. The LORD watches over you, the LORD is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The LORD will keep you from all harm, he will watch over your life; the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
God, the creator, God the sustainer, God the almighty, is also the God who watches over you.
Actually, the Bible even says that God holds us in his hand. How about this from Ps. 63:8 “Your strong right hand holds me securely.” How very cool is that? Do you think that any force or any power or any circumstance could take you from God’s strong right hand? Of course not. There is incredible security in the hand of he who watches over you. Rest there. He who watches over you never sleeps, never takes a vacation, is never caught looking in the other direction.
He cares for you, he loves you, and will always be there for you.
You are truly in good hands with Him.
