The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them (Psalm 34:7).
One Sabbath my husband and I went to visit one of his churches, and in the evening before sunset, he ordained the officers who were to take over the office work for the year 2002.
After the ordination service, we set out in a car on a two-kilometre journey back home. My husband, Isaac, drove the car while I sat behind him. While we were coming home, it was nearly 8 p.m. and the road was rough, so he slowed down to 40 kilometres per hour. God led us safely through the muddy and rough road till we got to the station headquarters,
From the station to our home is about a quarter of a kilometre, but steeply sloped. As we were descending the valley, Isaac applied the brake and it failed. The car gathered speed, and I saw that we were in danger. He tried to control the gear, but in vain. I prayed that the Lord might save us. Coming from the top of a hill to the bottom was a terrible thing. Many people were on the street chatting with each other. My husband drove swerving through the crowds in order to save lives. Finally he turned the steering wheel, and the car jumped over a big ditch and hit a house.
As soon as I opened the gate and came out of the car, the crowd rushed to the scene and asked me, "Mama, are you in good condition?" I said yes, then I went back to the car to find Isaac. I hugged him and asked, "Are you all right?"
He said, "Yes, I am searching for my Bible and church manual." To our surprise, the crowd helped us remove the car from where it was. And everything was in its own position—the windshield, watertank, headlights, and the brake itself were working. Everybody marveled at the miracle the Lord performed for us that day.
Fellow Shepherdesses around the world, we need not fear as we engage ourselves in the Lord's business, for we are assured of His protection (Romans 8:31). Matthew 28:20 says, "Beloved, I encourage you to remain steadfast in the work of God, knowing for sure that He is always with us, even to the end of the world."
Cheer up! God bless you all.
