God's Protection

I just have to tell you what an awesome God we serve and how He loves and protects His children.  I am writing this, because I want to give Him all the glory! 

I am in South Africa and have a friend in America, Sandy.  Last night her daughter, Genie, let me know she had the sudden urge to pray for me, so she asked if everything was alright.  I said yes, but that she should keep praying if God put it on her heart to do.  So just after her Mom contacted me to ask if everything was okay and to say that she's praying too, a shot went off outside in the street somewhere!!  Not long after that a police truck came driving by.  Nothing happened, we are okay, by God's grace and protection!  

I do believe something bad was about to happen, but through the power of prayer it was stopped.  Just wanted to share how grateful I am to Jesus. :)  I LOVE YOU JESUS!  You might wonder why did He use a girl on the other side of the world to pray for me at that very moment.....because He wanted His Name to be glorified through all this! :D  What an awesome God we serve!  Thank you Jesus for protecting us! ♥♥♥

Psalm 27:1-3
The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked came against me
To eat up my flesh,
My enemies and foes,
They stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army may encamp against me,
My heart shall not fear;
Though war may rise against me,
In this I will be confident.

Psalm 91
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
My God, in Him I will trust.”
3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler[a]
And from the perilous pestilence.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
And ten thousand at your right hand;
But it shall not come near you.
8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
And see the reward of the wicked.
9 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.
