A few days ago we were on our way to Greenville, SC when we were once again reminded of God’s presence and protection. We were going over a two-lane, curvy, mountain road before sunrise. As we rounded a bend, we suddenly saw two sets of headlights coming straight toward the front of our van, as an oncoming vehicle passed another vehicle. God gave the driver of our van an extremely fast response, and moved us off the road, away from the on-coming vehicle. We were within inches of a head-on collision.
Looking back we realize that God had prepared a place for our van as we swerved off the road; there was a driveway at exactly the right place, and so we were able to swerve onto that instead of into a ditch. There was even a mailbox beside the road that the LORD allowed us to miss.
It is such a comfort to know that God is always with us. “Lo, I am with you always.” Our merciful Savior spared us from what would have ended with disaster.
“The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.” -Psalm 34:7-
