God’s Supernatural Protection

by | Sep 8, 2022 | Believe | 43 comments

Have you ever had one of those experiences that you just can’t stop thinking about because it just doesn’t make sense?
One that you’re so grateful to have made it through that you can’t stop thanking God that you did. I had one of those
experiences last week, so I knew that it would need to be my “Believe” story this time. If you’ve read the front of this
newsletter, you know that God has recently opened some doors for this ministry that we have been praying for, for
many years. I learned a long ago to wait on God’s timing for things, so when He finally opens those doors it’s a very
exciting time. I also learned long ago that when God does open those doors, the enemy will try to interfere to stop it
from happening, especially when it concerns things that will glorify God and bring more people to Him. It started the
very day we got our new office. We have been waiting for a new place for some time because we have outgrown our
current location and it has kept us from being able to do many of the things we want to do. We were feeding the poor
that day and I went to pull our ministry van out of the drive only to discover that it was leaking all over the driveway in
the snow. The next day we got the news that it was going to cost us a thousand dollars to fix it and it will also eventually
need a new transmission. Ok, it is what it is, God will supply, He always does. A few days later we found out that
several things will need to be updated in the kitchen of our new office to cook our meals for the poor. Another several
thousand dollars. OK, again, it will be way worth it in the long run, God will supply, He always does. I trust Him
completely. The entire office needs painted, so I got some volunteers from Mount Union to help us paint. What a
blessing to have the help. I met the students at the new office, and we painted for several hours. I was driving the
ministry van back when I smelled a very, very strong odor of gas, and I was sure it was coming from the van. Now I’m
no mechanic, but I knew that wasn’t right. I’m obviously not the sharpest tool in the shed either, because I just kept
driving. I got up to Mount Union square when a car pulled up beside me aggressively honking its horn and 2 guys yelling
at me out the window that I was leaking gas. I waived and nodded to let them know I understood and proceeded to
turn on to the main road since the light was green, when the van suddenly just stopped. My intention was to get
somewhere to pull off the road out of the way. The smell of gasoline was overwhelming. I’m sure I must have tried to
start the van several times since I was blocking the whole right lane of State Street, not realizing at all what I was doing.
Within seconds a police car had pulled up behind me with his lights on and within a minute or two the fire engine came
blaring down the road. Well, this is embarrassing, I thought. I sat in that car for several minutes before I got past the
embarrassment of the situation and realized that I probably shouldn’t be sitting there with leaking gasoline. Well long
story made bearable, after several hours, waiting on two different tow trucks, I finally made it home. I received a text
from my mechanic later that evening telling me that God had surely been with me that day to say the least. The fuel line
had completely disconnected where it connects to the engine and the engine was completely soaked in gas and gas had
been spewing all over the engine while I was driving. My whole half of a tank of gas was gone. He can come up with no
reason as to how it did not catch fire. It should have exploded in fire with the high-pressure line just shooting gasoline
everywhere. I knew how. God was how. I lay awake at night unable to sleep, not with worry or fear or anxiety as
people often do, but with praise and wonder and thanksgiving trying desperately to find the words to fully express my
gratitude for saving my life that day. It makes you wonder how often we are saved from utter disaster without even
realizing it. Believe it or not, the story doesn’t end there. Several days later I was given a beautiful desk for our new
office. I got a few guys to help and a borrowed truck to move it for us. The move was literally only a couple of blocks
down the road. On the way, the desk took an odd shift and went straight through the window of the truck throwing
glass all over the guys that were moving it. No one was hurt, thank goodness. None of this has discouraged me from
walking through the door that God has opened for us and continually moving towards the assignment that God has on
my life and the vision He gave me long ago. Whatever is coming must be pretty wonderful to have such a fuss made to
try and stop it. We ask for your prayers and support as we move to another level of serving our awesome God.
“I have set in front of you an open door that no one can shut.” Rev. 3:8
