Psa 91v11 – Divine Care

On a warm Sunday afternoon in September, while enjoying a barbecue, we noticed thick black smoke coming from our neighbour’s property. Going across, we found a wooden cabin in flames. By the time the flames were extinguished, it was just a shell. Thankfully, the tenant, a young student, was out, but all his belongings were destroyed, and he lost his home. He was devastated. It was early Monday morning, exactly a year later. We were experiencing a major storm. The river, usually a gentle stream, was raging. Suddenly changing course, it flattened the trees and wooden cottage which had caught fire a year earlier. If anyone had been in the cottage, they would have been killed instantly. Terrible things happen in life. We lose our job; our house burns down; our car is stolen; ill health prevents a holiday. But living in God’s will means He directs our steps, and these very events could be life-saving. Our Father loves us and cares for every detail of our lives. “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways” (Psalms 91:11). So when bad things happen, instead of complaining or losing faith, keep your trust in God. For in this very event, God could be saving your life now and eternally. Open Bible – (Nicky B)
