I was driving on one of our Houston interstates one day and a car came out of what appeared to be nowhere and I had to slam on my brakes to avoid a collision. My car went into an immediate fish tale.
I thought for sure I was going to hit multiple vehicles, sending many innocent people to area hospitals. In that instant of trying to make correction and steer my truck back into control, I yelled out a prayer for God to help! Within seconds my truck was on the shoulder, right up against a concrete median, facing the opposite direction than traffic. I was stopped almost immediately after praying. There was not a scratch on my car or any others.
Suppose God used angels to spare my life that day? Perhaps He sent them to take control of my steering wheel. Hebrews 1:14 tells us that angels are ministering spirits. They are the extension of God on earth, assisting us in our time of need. They are attentive to the prayers we express, ready to help at God’s command. I’m grateful, living in the nation’s 4th largest city and traveling the roadways that God has angels all around to keep and protect me – on call at a moment’s notice.
When we sing my friend, Geron Davis’ song, Holy Ground, it sure makes the lyrics, “and I know that there are angels all around” mean so much more.
