Tonight at 8:30 p.m. my son was almost hit and would have been critically wounded by a drunk driver. The police are still looking for him 3 hours later.
I am so grateful for the Holy Spirit. I am not a night owl the way I used to be. For the past two nights I have been unable to sleep, which is very unusual for me. Last night as I lay in bed the Holy Spirit prompted me to pray. I had no idea what it was about, but knew there was an urgency and I prayed in the Spirit for some time. I then got up and walked the floors of my home praying in tongues.
Every day my mother and I both plead the blood of Jesus over every member of our family. I always quote Psalm 91 that tells us “no evil shall befall you, neither shall any plague come nigh your dwelling….” I also post warring protective angels to surround my loved ones. Again, tonight I was just unable to sleep. My son is used to me going to bed at a certain time and by the time the drunk driver was reported and the police had all the information they needed he thought I would be asleep. I got up again and decided to look at my Facebook. That is when I saw the news of it. When I called him he told me he didn’t know how the driver missed him other than the fact God had His hand of protection on him! Glory to God!
It pays to be sensitive to God! It pays to obey Him when He speaks and without delaying it! It pays to plead the blood of Jesus over ourselves and our loved ones and to post those angels to be round about them. Many years ago we were in church and my pastor prayed for me. He started to walk away and stopped and turned back to me. He said, “God says daily you ask for angels to surround your loved ones for protection and because you ask He does!” I had never told my pastor I prayed this prayer. My son is now 25 and I have been doing this almost all of his life! In fact that word came from my pastor about ten years ago. What if I had not prayed that prayer? What if I had not been well taught and did not know what the Word of God promised me? Tonight, I may not be up typing a praise, but instead doing something I cannot bear to think of.
Praise Him for His mighty works, praise Him for His mighty acts the Bible tells us….and I do!!!
