1 He who dwells in the ashelter of the MostHigh
Will abide in the bshadow of the Almighty.
I noticed the scene of our accident was between mile marker 90 and 92. I didn’t see the marker for mile 91, but the accident had to have taken place near that very spot. Which made me think of one of my favorite passages, and again, I’m in awe.
My God, in whom I ctrust!”
Jesus is LORD!
3 For it is He who delivers you from the asnare of the trapper
And from the deadly bpestilence.
4 He will acover you with His pinions,
And bunder His wings you may seek refuge;
I looked up the following words, to make sure I understood what this verse was saying:
1. the distal or terminal segment of the wing of a bird consisting of the carpus, metacarpus, and phalanges.
2. the wing of a bird.
3. a feather.
4. the flight feathers collectively.
[bool-werk, -wawrk, buhl–]
1. a wall of earth or other material built for defense; rampart.
2. any protection against external danger, injury, or annoyance: The new dam was a bulwark against future floods.
3. any person or thing giving strong support or encouragement in time of need, danger, or doubt: Religion was his bulwark.
4. Usually, bulwarks. Nautical . a solid wall enclosing the perimeter of a weather or main deck for the protection of persons or objects on deck.
Looking at the wreckage of our car, I cannot but KNOW that I was in the shadow of the Almighty, and that His hand was protecting us, defending us.
Or of the carrow that flies by day;
Or of the bdestruction that lays waste at noon.
And ten thousand at your right hand,
But ait shall not approach you.
And asee the recompense of the wicked.
Even the Most High, byour dwelling place.
10 aNo evil will befall you,
Nor will any plague come near your 1tent.
We are grateful, and thankful for life. Many people are killed or seriously injured in accidents of this nature, we walked away without any injuries, not even a cut from the piles of broken glass left in our seats. It didn’t come near us.
11 For He will give aHis angels charge concerning you,
To guard you in all your ways.
12 They will abear you up in their hands,
That you do not strike your foot against a stone.
I have a mental picture of our angel lifting the car up, so that the elk hit in the lower corner of the windshield, instead of up in the mid-section. I watched that windshield bow in, it was like something out of the movies, almost unreal, yet true, and frightening.
13 You will atread upon the lion and cobra,
The young lion and the 1serpent you will trample down.
14 “aBecause he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
15 “He will acall upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in 1trouble;
I will rescue him and bhonor him.
“Jesus, Lord, help us!” And He heard me, was with us, rescued us. My Deliverer!
Thank you, Lord. Thank you for sparing our lives that night. Thank you for your sacrifice that spared our souls from judgment. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.
