This is a true story.
About a month ago I was given a verse by my mom, who believed God wanted me to have it. It went something like this…. Because you trust in Me, I will help you…
It may have been this one:
“Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek You.” Ps 9:10
You see, at the time when I read it, it wasn’t relevant to me. I didn’t even write it down. I thought it was nice but that’s it.
Fast Forward one month later and I am hiking at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, 12,000 feet high. The day was beautiful but suddenly, out of nowhere, a storm developed over the mountain ridge. Miles away from my destination I found myself being the tallest thing around, concerned, and clearly on my mind, oh yes, the article my boss gave me before I left for vacation, about the 3 hikers dying after being struck by lightning at this same park.
I turned around walking quickly in a steady drizzle, when a bright flash of light illuminated everything and immediately a piercing crack of thunder clapped above my head.
That’s it. I’m toast. I’m dead, I thought, for real this time.
I joke about it now, but I was very scared. So scared of being struck by lightning, it triggered a panic attack to which I could not be consoled. It was a full blown panic attack. Tears were involved, I have to admit. I became very lightheaded trying to breath normal, but it had nothing to do with the altitude. It was fear.
After saying a prayer, that verse repeated in my head.
That’s why I received that verse! So I repeated out loud, “Because I trust in YOU, because I trust in You, because I trust in You…”
A physical calm washed over me. The tears stopped. I was able to breath. And I KNEW I was going to be okay. I still practically ran back, but I knew I was going to be okay.
That’s how God works… in very mysterious ways. He knew that verse was going to be relevant for me exactly when I was going to need it. He delivered to me a message before the event and helped recall it in my memory exactly when I needed it. He’s alive and He really does love us.
