(For some reason, yesterday's Karen's Korner didn't go through. So here it is!)
This morning I saw on the news, a Michigan law enforcement officer who grabbed a two-year-old girl out of the way of an oncoming garbage truck. She was wandering down her driveway. He intervened just a few moments before the truck happened their street. Mom said she had lost track of her briefly.
At any rate, disaster was avoided and caught on video!
I thought about us. How often do we 'wander aimlessly'? And God intervenes. Just in time to rescue us from a leering disaster. We don't always know where we are going. Or that we may need help. He knows! He helps!
Psalm 91 says, "He rescues us from every trap, and protects us from the fatal plague. He will shield us with His wings! They will shelter us. His faithful promises are our armor. Now we don't need to be afraid of the dark any more fear dangers of the day (verses 3-6)."
And it goes on later in the chapter: "For He orders His angels to protect you wherever you go. They will steady you with their hands to keep you from stumbling against the rocks on the trail. You can safely meet a lion or step on poisonous snakes, yes, even trample them beneath your feet!
"For the Lord says, 'Because He loves me, I will rescue him; I will make him great because he trusts in my name. When he calls on me, I will answer. I will be with him in trouble, and rescue him and honor him. I will satisfy him with a full life and give him my salvation" (verses 11-16 LAB).
