Do you believe?
Do you believe that angels are out there watching over us? When we pray to God and ask for protection while driving out of town–do you think an angel sits on the roof of our car, like in the Frank Peretti books?
Interesting question, isn’t it? I’d love to hear what you think.
A friend of mine was driving down the road on his way to an appointment. Not necessarily speeding, listening to crazy music, or weaving in and out. Just driving along, when all of a sudden…
Glass instantly showers over him like rain. The driver’s side window shattered. Of course he ducks. Was it a bullet? Was he hit? After making his way to the side of the road, a cop pulls up to help. After investigating, they discovered that a large part of a car that was being towed in front of him fell off the tow truck, bounced on the ground, and up at his car, crashing into his window.
It could have seriously injured him had it struck him, but somehow it just bounced off the glass, shattering it, but then dropping away from the car.
Now, I’m a big fan of the Peretti books (This Present Darkness and Piercing the Darkness)–so I envisioned a large, bright angel deflecting that deadly projectile with a swat of his hand claiming it wasn’t my friend’s time to be injured or killed.
What do you think? Are God’s Angels around us protecting us from harm?
If they are, what about Dark Angels? Are they out there trying to do us harm?
