I've been meaning to share this for sometime now so here goes...thanks be to God:)
I was driving up this rather steep hill to visit a friend of mine some months back. There's this security check-point at the foot of the hill and the security guard usually waves at me and I don't actually need to stop...I just smile and wave back and all's good.
I was in a rush that particular day and guess what?? The security guard just had to stop my car to do the routine check! After he had completed the routine Q&A session which took barely 30 seconds, I drove off with a wee bit of an irritation in my heart thinking how that was simply an unnecessary delay. Hardy 30 seconds later as I was making my way up the hill (at a slower speed since I had to stop earlier), out comes 'a grey creature' literally dashing across the front of my car. I slam on my brakes! More grey creatures follow...three in total. I was in shock waiting to see if more would dash across. It was a family of WILD BOAR! And they didn't look friendly!! Once I regained my calmness I drove off slowly and reached my friend's house after the brief delay.
I immediately knew it was God's protection that saved me that day from either hitting the wild boars or being hit by them. No doubt at all that the delay I had encountered at the security check point was to keep me safe.
So the next time you face some sort of delay, thank God and know that time is in His hands. Delays = Protection:)
He will keep you safe from all hidden dangers and from all deadly diseases. Psalm 91:3
