Psalm 91 meets Highway 95 Mile Marker 91

 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.
  2 I will say to the Lord, “My arefuge and my bfortress,
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;
His cfaithfulness is a dshield and bulwark.
I looked up the following words, to make sure I understood what this verse was saying: 

pin·ion

–noun

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.

bul·wark

[bool-werk, -wawrk, buhl]

–noun

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.
  5 You awill not be afraid of the bterror by night,
Or of the carrow that flies by day;
  6 Of the apestilence that 1stalks in darkness,
Or of the bdestruction that lays waste at noon.
  7 A thousand may fall at your side
And ten thousand at your right hand,
But ait shall not approach you.
  8 You will only look on with your eyes
And asee the recompense of the wicked.
  9 1For you have made the Lord, amy refuge,
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.
  14aBecause he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will bset him securely on high, because he has cknown My name.
  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!
  16 “With 1a along life I will satisfy him
And 2blet him see My salvation.”
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.
