God is With Us, No Matter Where or How Far We Run

There are many insurance companies out there competing for your business and they all want to give you a sense of confidence and comfort. They want you to know that, when you need them most, they will be there for you. So, they use slogans such as, "Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there," or "You're in good hands with Allstate." They want you to look at them as a source of stability so, a company like Prudential uses the Rock of Gibraltar as its logo along with the slogan, "Get a piece of the rock."

We all need to have things like life insurance, homeowner's insurance, and auto insurance because they give us protection against the unforeseen and often inevitable circumstances of life, such as death, accidents, and other loss. So, we choose one of these companies and invest our money and confidence in it. But, when it comes to our spiritual lives, when it comes to our heart and soul, the only insurance policy we need is God.

No matter what we are dealing with in life, God is there. He is always with us and will never forsake us. In our times of trouble, He is with us. Through pain and loss, He is with us. He is even with us when we turn from Him, no matter how far from Him we may run and how dark a place we run to. Psalm 139:7-10 tells us that there is no place we can go that He is not there with us. He is there when we are in a good place, and He is there when we are in darkness.

Whether we are in a dark place as a result of sin, or because our circumstances have driven us there, we can be sure that God is with us. But, more than that, we can be sure that, if we call on Him, our cries will be heard and He will lift us out of the pit we are in and set our feet on solid ground (Psalm 40:1-3). When we need God, He is there. With Him, we are always in good hands. And, through His Son, Jesus, He has provided a Rock that we can stand on.
