MBT 05 Safety on the Road

I know I haven’t posted in awhile, but I’ve been thinking about the direction I would like to take this blog, and how best to harness the benefits of technology for positive outreach. Anyway, in the meantime, I decided I should continue posting blessings, both big and small, to keep encouraging each other in the midst of terrible news around the world.

Today’s devotion is a personal testimony! One of my fave psalms is Psalm 121. It contains just 8 verses!

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains – where does my help come from? 2 My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. 3 He will not let your foot slip – he who watches over you will not slumber; 4 indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. 5 The Lord watches over you – the Lord is your shade at your right hand; 6 the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. 7 The Lord will keep you from all harm – he will watch over your life; 8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

Last Friday, I was driving to church for a youth program in my uncle’s van, fetching two friends. Suddenly, while on the highway, the accelerator pedal snapped! I couldn’t accelerate and was losing speed so I quickly changed to the slowest lane. However, I was already posing a danger to the fast-moving vehicles behind us. I didn’t know what happened and what to do! So I asked one friend to pray for us while the two of us in front tried to figure out how to fix the situation. Even though I knew nothing about pedals and gears, I suddenly got the idea that the joint connecting the pedal to the engine may have loosened. And even though I couldn’t see it, I managed to hold the parts together with one hand and slowly begin driving again. But because one hand was kept on the pedal below, I couldn’t change gears; my friend had to help me! It was amazing and difficult but we reached church safely!

The van is now at the repair shop. Truly this experience made me feel God’s protection over us. Things could have turned out so wrong and we could have met an accident. But I believe God specially took care of us that day. He gave me the knowledge to fix the issue within minutes, and protected us on the road. In addition, this accident allowed us to discover a problem with the van and fix it before another accident could happen. This makes me want to praise God and thank Him for His goodness.

God’s protection in your life may not be as obvious or dramatic as that incident but I truly believe we all have experienced it. Try and recall how God has brought you safely to where you are today. Even though you may still face troubles know that God has been with you, and will continue to be with you as long as you seek Him and stay close to Him. Have a blessed week!

My blessing today was a renewed desire to reach out and help people through the Internet, whether through shared blessings, prayer lists, or testimonies. I’m not sure which direction or format this should take, but I have so many different ideas, it’s crazy. I hope if anyone else wants to share their blessings or prayers, please contact me! And always, thanks be to God for life.

My blessing today was attending an awesome prayer rally held by the youths, to pray for an upcoming evangelistic programme targeted at seekers. As Matthew 18:20 writes, “For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” Thanks, God!
