After we all came inside and I started to download the pictures I had a heavy sense that I did not even realize all that God had just done to protect us in that moment! I praise Him! I will remember and I will thank Him for His hand of protection!
We do not believe this to be a coincidence. Today, J and his awesome men's group spoke at church, telling all that God was doing in their lives and encouraging other men to seek God and surround themselves with other encouraging, godly men. Today, there was a lady at church that spoke a confirming word into J's life (more on that someday). Today, my sis spoke, out loud a confirming word to my other sis, about us (she had no idea J was speaking or about the fire) - this was something that was stirring in her spirit for a while but today she spoke it. Today there was this fire - that could have been devastating! But TODAY there was a fire training going on 4 miles away! The Cavalry was here within minutes because today God knew! God is worthy to be trusted, God is worthy to be praised!
The enemy of our souls hates the steps of faith we are taking and will attack us. But we serve a great BIG God that will never leave us and never forsake us. He will prepare us if we allow Him to and if we seek Him with all our hearts and souls.
I can not help but think of my bloggy friend A Place Called Simplicity - their home burnt down about a month ago. I do not know why our home was saved and theirs was not but what I do know is God is carrying them through - He will never leave us nor forsake us! What comfort to know that tho we may be attacked He will carry us through - Praise Him!
