(From Journal #10: September 7, 2007)
Lord, last night you saved my life! I know an angel was with me. When I changed the light bulb in the library lamp which is set on a timer, the thing literally blew up on me! My hand was inside the shade screwing in the bulb and the lamp exploded, began sparking, smoking, and spewing! I’ve never seen anything like it!
I jerked the cord out of the wall and it continued for several minutes. The smell was awful. I could have been electrocuted but I DIDN’T EVEN GET A BURN! Oh, Jesus, thank You! If You were not protecting “our tent” the house could’ve burned down with this lamp being on a timer and defective. Not only was I not burned, I didn’t even get a surge of electricity! Before when I’ve changed bulbs, I’ve sometimes gotten a shock if my hand got too close to the base. Unplugging lamps before changing bulbs will become a must.
I set it outside in the driveway because I wasn’t sure how long it was dangerous and then prayed over the other lamps inside on timers. Prayers of protection are powerful. Psalm 91 is real! The enemy is always out to destroy us, so we can never let down our guard and become lax in praying for Your divine protection.
Psalm 91:9-12: If you make the Most High your dwelling– even the LORD, Who is my refuge–then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
1 Peter 5:8: Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
