And the rocks did fall, a true story!
I recall one Thursday night at Church many years ago, after I had given my testimony about seeing God’s hand in my life. The Pastor said he liked that term I used. Recently I was reflecting on the many times in my Christian life I have seen God act. One experience I remember when my faith was weak and my fear was strong. When your life is in danger you never forget those times. It was in the 1980’s that my brother in the Lord sold me a Moped which I loved, took my young son for many rides on it.
One day I went for a ride on my Moped alone, thank God! I rode to a less traveled road miles from my home, it was an area that you would hardly ever see a car. As I began my ride home on that deserted road I was approaching one of the few Bus Stops, to my surprise there were about five teenagers there waiting for the Bus. When I was about to ride by them, they saw me and they all picked up large rocks! Seeing this and knowing what was about to happen caused great fear to arise in my heart ( The Moped had a problem, after running for a while, the engine would quit, maybe due to overheating? I was thinking of that as I approached these kids with the rocks in their hands!). You and I know that only one good size rock can cause much injury to the brain or even death. This is what I faced all alone on that deserted road. I don’t remember calling on God for help, all I remember is thinking is that I would duck my head and hope they missed it with the rocks. To my total amazement as I rode by they all dropped the rocks from their hands, I happened to look in my rear view mirror and saw the most wonderful sight, a Police car! Where we lived at that time was a low crime area, we hardly saw a Police car at any time, in fact, most people didn’t even lock their doors! It was God’s doing that at the exact moment of my need he sent his Ministers the Police to deliver me. When the teenagers saw the Police car, the rocks fell from their hands! Let me ask you this question, what are the odds that at this time of my special need a Police car would appear on this lonely road? It had nothing to do with the odds; it was an act of God and his love for me! His word tells me that he is faithful to me even when I am unfaithful, for he cannot deny himself as HE is the faithful and the Amen!
If we are faithless, He remains faithful, for He cannot deny Himself. 2-Timothy 2:13 NASB.
Therefore, angels are only servants–spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation. Hebrews 1:14 NLT.
This was not my first encounter with the possibility of death; I was given the “Last Rights” by a Priest as a 16 year old boy raised in the Catholic religion, almost run over on my bicycle, (I believe an Angel turned the steering wheel of my bike and the car missed me by inches).Survived a head on crash with a truck that totaled my car, fell off my boatlift, hitting my concrete dock and falling into freezing water, I had thought at that time I broke my back! Fell off a ladder and was totally paralyzed but recovered fully. I will leave these testimonies for future time, they all give honor and glory to the Lord Jesus Christ and his “Hand” of protection and deliverance in my life. I am truly a blessed man, an object of his love with a blessed family, to God be the glory!
What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us Romans 8:31 NLT.
I dedicate this testimony to all the Police forces and their families. The Police are God’s ministers who put their lives on the line every day for us, our beloved brother-in-law is one of them!
The authorities are God’s servants, sent for your good. But if you are doing wrong, of course you should be afraid, for they have the power to punish you. They are God’s servants, sent for the very purpose of punishing those who do what is wrong. Romans 13:4 NLT.
