No AccidentMay 28, 2017
"The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them" (Ps. 34:7).
In May 1952, my wife and children were traveling with me to a tent meeting in New Mexico. When my mother learned of our travel plans, she said, "Be careful on the road! There are so many wrecks. When you're traveling, I stay awake all night praying for your safety and just waiting for the phone to ring with the news that you've been in a wreck. But I know that you're praying every minute you're on the road."
"No, I never do." I replied.
"Oh, Son, what's gotten into you?" she said.
"Nothing but the Word," I said, "Jesus has already said, "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee" (Heb. 13:5). So I don't have to go down the road begging Jesus to be with me. I always start out by saying, "Heavenly Father, I'm so thankful for Your Word. I'm so glad Jesus is with me. I'm so glad the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are inside me."
Then I go singing and rejoicing. God has already told me in Psalm 91 that no evil will overtake me. And the Swedish translation of that passage reads, "No accident shall overtake thee."
Confession: Jesus never leaves me. Angels are encamped around me. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit live inside of me. No accident can overtake me!
