We felt God’s protection
I was recently reminded of a time when my son and daughter and a couple of their friends were on a sailing trip. They were sailing to the Channel Islands off the coast of California. They had decided to sail through the night. Conditions were perfect with a full moon, clear skies, and calm weather.
Wherever they were in that big ocean, God was right there with them.
There was no cell service so I couldn’t reach them, but right before I went to sleep this passage from Psalm 139 came very strongly to my thought: “If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me” (verses 9, 10). I’ve learned to pay attention when an angel message comes like this. So I texted the message to my daughter and went to sleep knowing that wherever they were in that big ocean, God was right there with them. God was truly All, and He was keeping them safe.
