#60 - Art of Living

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #60: "2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you. 3 For I am the LORD your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior..." (Isa 43:2-3).

Many elephants get hit by train when they do the crossing without knowing the danger that a train may come to hit it on the railway track before it will be able to move out its way. Many times we cross dangerous paths of life without knowing its danger, but thank God who knows it all. He preserves us supernaturally time after time, according to His promise. Even recently a couple of weeks before, there was a heavy downpour due to storm when I went to pick my wife from her work place. Actually because of it I got stranded in that place as I was waiting in a tea shop outside their company, I saw hopelessly that all the roads around had got flooded and traffic got to a stand still point. I prayed and took a different route to avoid the dangerous flood waters which get collected in the road and many times makes the potholes seem unnoticeable. As my wife is pregnant for the glory of God, I did even think twice of going the usual way which was flooded.

Then we went through a traffic chaos and did a detour in the rain and I took a turn in a corner and suddenly looked forward to find that the signal was green and a speeding car driver was exactly coming with great speed towards us who were returning back to our home in a two wheeler. My wife screamed seeing the car, but thank God at the last second the driver of the car who was only seeing the green light also saw us to brake the car in a micro second at the last moment, and the car came to a screeching halt. To our surprise, we still found ourselves to be alive and well. Without a scratch upon us, we came to our home praising God for his rescue that day in spite of the continuing rain which was not able to dampen our spirit's anymore.

Afterwards when I reached home safely, the following scripture came to my mind when I thought about the supernatural rescue of the Lord which could have suddenly turned in to fatality, "Our God is the God of salvation; And to GOD the Lord belong escapes from death." (Psa 68:20). I know for sure that if not for the angels of God that God uses supernaturally to rescue his saints, we both would have been no more alive. Actually I should have been careful enough to see the signal and must have stopped the bike, but in spite of my foolish mistake at that time, God's sovereign hand of protection was over our life. I truly believe that we the saints are truly immortal because our Savior saves us time and time again until God's purpose for our life get fulfilled fully. Praise the Lord!

Much Blessings...
