I’ve been checking my insurance policy
Over 50 years ago I was offered this assurance policy. It offered me everlasting, eternal life – what’s more that was guaranteed. More than that it was sealed within me- that is my spirit was born again and the Holy Spirit came in as a seal, a guarantee. (Ephesians 1:13) The policy also came with a full policy document, called The New Covenant (Hebrews 8:8-13), and an active help line (Hebrews 4:16).All I had to do was believe and give my life to Jesus.
Like all insurance policies one has to read the small print!
Did the policy guarantee success at work or business?No.
Did the policy guarantee I’d never get sick?No.
Did the policy guarantee protection from all evil attacks?No.
Did the policy offer help in a time of need?Yes.
Did the policy show me the way to reign in life?Yes.
Did the policy give me authority and power over the works of evil?Yes.
At the time the policy came with a free gift, a gift which is still with me today and for all time – the gift of righteousness. (2 Cor 5:21) That means being in right standing with God Himself,such that I can call Him Father and call on Him any time I like.
As I ran my accountancy practice, I came to experience the fact that He knew much more than I did about the technicalities and rules of accountancy; and He was willing to share His knowledge and wisdom – both when I asked for it and sometimes without my even asking.
He showed me that I was to actively take authority over the enemy who would seek to rob and destroy – even to kill if he could.This is not the same as me asking Him to deal with the enemy,– apparently He had already done that at Calvary, all I had to do was to enforce His victory on a week to week basis. He gave me the power, He wanted me to stand in His victory, to take authority, to show the enemy His manifold wisdom.
The small printin the covenant gave me excellent guidance – it told me to be generous and that same measure of generosity would be poured into my lap.Yes – it works!
It told me that by faith, that is by hearing what He had to say to me and believing it and acting on it, then nothing would be impossible for me.Yes – it works in health, in business, in life.
And the final promise, right now a place is being prepared for me by Jesus Himself. (John 14:1-3) What a wonderful policy – the New Covenant.
Greetings and blessings to all my fellow policyholders.
