[CF Devotionals] 2006-06-28 - The Protecting Hand

Today I just want to praise God for watching over us. On the way home last night, a car in the oncoming lane lost control and spun around into my lane then veered off the side barely missing some large trees. I made a stop by my boss' office on the way out for a minute that I don't normally make. Then I caught the tail end of a traffic light that doesn't seem to ever catch me. Was it coincidence or was it something else.

I believe it was something else. I believe God and his servants watch over us and protect us. If we can entertain angels unaware as is mentioned in Hebrews, then certainly they can protect us unaware.

Psalms 61:1-4

To the chief Musician upon Neginah, A Psalm of David.

1 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed:
    lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.

God thank you for your hand in all the tiny "coincidences" that happen and keep us out of harm's way. You are truly amazing. Thank you for being my mighty shelter, my strong shield, and my protecting refuge in the storm. Amen
