My Testimony of God’s Protection

“The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my savior; thou saved me from violence. I will call on the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.”  2 Samuel 22:3-4

The following incident occurred at around 10:00 p.m. My husband, son and I were sleeping, and the phone rang. My husband was a Locksmith, and the phone call was work related. He was called out that night to unlock someone’s car. My son, Jeremy and I got out of bed, to wait for his return.

While waiting, I left the room to go into bathroom and suddenly, I felt a quickening in my spirit, and the following thought came to me: “Go down the Hall now!! There will be a knock at your door, and your son will answer it.” I ran down the hall, and no sooner than I got to the living room, there was a knock at my front door. I went to the door, and said, “Who is it?” There was no answer. I looked through the peep hole in the door, and there was someone standing outside my door wearing a black hoodie, and his head was down. All of a sudden, the door knob began to turn. I stayed by the door, and told my son to get the gun. After Jeremy gave me the gun, I told him to call the Police. When he had them on the phone, I took the phone, and explained the situation to them. The Police told me to shoot, if that man come through the door, and they were on their way. They arrived about 20 minutes later but, he was gone. Shortly, thereafter, my husband returned.

One of the things my Pastor taught me was the importance of listening to God’s voice, and acting upon what He says to do.

May the PEACE of GOD be with you, may His LOVE encompass you, and may His HOPE fill your heart!

“He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.”  I Samuel 2:9

I will be forever grateful to God for His protection on that awful night!
