Dr. David Jeremiah Daily Devotionals August 30 2022 : PEDAL TO THE METAL :
I trust in the Lord for protection.
Psalm 11:1, NLT
Recommended Reading: Psalm 11
A woman recently crashed a prayer meeting in North Carolina, literally! Because of another driver, she lost control of her SUV and rammed through the front door of Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church, plowing through the pews and stopping just short of the pulpit. The pastor said it was a miracle no one was sitting in the church because it was almost time for prayer meeting. “I was running a little bit late getting here or I would’ve been here,” he said. Had the accident happened twenty minutes later, several people would have likely died. As it happened, not even the driver was seriously injured.
Rev. Jesse Mooney Jr. said, “The Lord watched after us, he’s good to us.”
Not all our escapes are so dramatic. None of us know how many times the Lord’s protecting hand has saved, guarded, defended, and watched over us. None of us know how busy the angels have been keeping us from harm and evil. In His love, God protects us, even in the midst of hardship. That keeps us from being a nervous wreck!
Romans 8:28 is very real: “All things work together for good.”
