He protects me
Years ago before I knew that my spirit could protect me from harm a vehicle threw me on the hood. My job puts me in the street daily, because the underground lines I locate at intersections cross under the street.
One early morning as the sun was to my back a small truck turned into the lane I was marking. When he realized that I was within his field of vision he applied the brake. Because the sun was to my back he couldn’t see me. I saw that he was about to hit me and there was not enough time to safely get away. Just as he was about to run into me I jumped onto his hood of the truck. I sustained no injury luckily.
I have learned much from reading scripture. If I pray for guidance the spirit intercedes for us. It is written; You however are not in the realm of the flesh, but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ.
Knowing what I do now praying that God watch over me and keep me from harm is comforting. Now I know that driving public may be busy on their phones or any other kind of distraction at any time that I am in the street. So I have begun to say a simple prayer asking that He keeps me alert to any kind of danger before exiting my work truck.
I rarely pray for anything because I know He knows what I need. When I do pray it is thanking Him for what he has provided or for someone else. As I said, it is comforting knowing He can protect me probably because He keeps me alert at all times. It is so easy to become distracted to what going on around me. Our God is a good, good father. A good father looks out for his children.
