Thursday's Thoughts

Overdraft Protection

God is good and He’s good ALL THE TIME!

All of us can relate to a bank account with overdraft protection. Overdraft protection is something offered by a bank so that in the event of OUR human error, the bank can make it appear to everyone on the outside that we have plenty of money in our account and that all is well. If you’ve ever had to use your overdraft protection, you know that it’s not a pleasant experience because for every ‘protection’ or use of that service, you are penalized with a fee. As you know, those fees aren’t cheap, but it sure does help save face when it APPEARS that you have plenty of money in your account to take care of a check you’ve written.

The same can be said about God. He is our ultimate overdraft protection! He totally makes up for our shortcomings. He paid the ultimate price with His son by allowing Him to take the penalty for our sins on Calvary. Just like overdraft protection at the bank, there is no price to be paid to have this protection in place. We are promised that once we are His, nothing can pluck us out of His hand…we are guaranteed Heaven.

Romans 8:38-39
For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

His Forever,
