The Lord in His infinite grace and mercy has promised us in His Word that
He would be with us at all times to lead and protect us and show us His
mighty power. All who have made Jesus the Lord of their life are promised
divine protection by His Holy angels. The Bible declares in Psalm 34:7-8
“The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear Him, and
delivereth them. O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man
that trusteth in Him.” Trust the Lord that He is with you at all times and
know that He has given His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your
ways. Do not fear the enemy, but rather stand firm in confidence and know
that you are strong through Him. (Isaiah 40:28-31) (Psalm 91:9-11)
I hope this message encourages your heart to give thanks to the Lord for
the many times that He has saved you from harm without you even realizing it.
ANGELS OF THE ROAD
I knew I was in serious trouble just as my car traveled under an overpass.
I hit ice, my worst nightmare!
It was a regular route for me. I was living in a small town and had to
drive the city to teach a night class at a College. A full-blown snow storm
was in progress as I headed home that night. I was driving quite cautiously
peering into the black nothingness, through the furious swishing of
I was on a well traveled highway, in good condition and had my choice of
two driving lanes with full shoulders on either side. I felt I should be
okay. Suddenly as I came out on the other side of that overpass the car hit
black ice and cold fear hit me, colder than the outdoors and knotted my
insides. I knew I had a death grip on the wheel as I wrestled to keep the
car from heading for the ditch. The car lurched from side to side, sliding
and weaving. Why couldn't I just get it straight?
Fear explored my brain in a race faster than the car itself! This was
always a busy highway, day or night there was never a let up. To shoot
over to the other lanes would be an invitation to death!! Desperately I
struggled to keep the car righted but it slid sickeningly toward the ditch
and the traffic lanes on the other side. I called out loud to the only help
I could, “God, please help me!”
As the car slid straight toward the ditch I released my grip on the wheel
and turned the problem over to HIM. There was nothing I could do. I had
lost the battle and knew it. I could sense movement and then nothing.
There was no sound and no sensation. I did not feel the car move nor hit
anything. I felt as though I was in sound studio, with any possible sound
being sucked away. It was so completely quiet. Sort of like Maxwell Smart's
Cone of Silence!
I sat in complete darkness and wondered where I was. I stepped out of the
car, puzzled as to what may have taken place. The car was entirely covered
in a blanket of white snow and now it was sideways blocking both lanes of
oncoming traffic. I looked over the roof of the little vehicle, a Toyota
Corolla, and saw cars in both lanes heading straight for me.
It was dark and my car sat there dead, no headlights to warn the
unsuspecting travelers. I stood in the darkness, waving frantically in an
effort to warn the drivers who were rushing straight at me.
Unbelievably all oncoming traffic saw me in time and moved over to the
shoulders to get by. I pushed my car over to the side of the road and
tentatively tried the starter. The motor caught. I traveled cautiously
along listening to the motor. Everything sounded as it should. Of course
now I was traveling in the wrong direction on the other side of the road.
I made it to the first crossroad, got turned back around in the direction
I wanted to travel in and once again headed for home.
Later, the car was checked. There was not even grass caught on the
undercarriage from traveling through the ditch. There were no signs that
this car had been in and out of a ditch!
I was on the second busiest highway in Canada that stormy night and my car
had ended up traveling through a ditch into two other traffic lanes. I am
alive and able to tell about this event because our Heavenly Father surely
has many traffic angels and when I hit the ice they were the experts at
For years after, each time I went under that overpass I thanked God for
hearing me that night.
I know that I have been blessed and this is not my only narrow mishap out
on icy roads. On two other occasions my prayers were answered immediately
and angels actually moved my car to keep me safe.
I know that I have been blessed with His love, but I think I must really
tire out His angels! (Tire out His angels. Could that be a pun?)

Be encouraged and know that there is an invisible world of protection that
surrounds God's children and the divine intervention that takes place
multiples of times each day are miracles that not too many people realize
have taken place. Choose to be one who notices the invisible miracles and
give thanks to the God who loves you and protects you. (2 Kings 6:16-17)
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Psalm 91:9-11 “Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even
the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither
shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For He shall give His angels
charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.”
Psalm 28:6-8 “Blessed be the LORD, because He hath heard the voice of my
supplications. The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in
Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my
song will I praise Him. The LORD is their strength, and He is the saving
strength of His anointed.”
Proverbs 3:5-6 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto
thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall
direct thy paths.”
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
