God’s voice saved me from robbers.
Dear reader, in this article I would like to show you a classic example of how God speaks to you to save you from dangerous situations.
Robbers entered my compound.
Before I shifted to my current residence I used to live in a less secure neighborhood. At the time when this incident happened I had some construction works going on at that place of residence. Unknown to me and my family, one of the construction workers we were using had got hold of the key of the padlock to our pedestrian entrance gate to our residence, took it for duplication and brought it back. This meant he had his own duplicate key to our residence gate. This is the key robbers used to gain entrance to my residence as we all slept at night. Dear child of God always be careful where you put your residence, business, and car keys. Do not trust non-family members with your keys.
I and all my family members were deep asleep as the robbers entered my residence complex. What was left for them was to break and gain entrance to the interior of my house. Dear reader, you have someone who does not sleep at all. It is our Father in Heaven. Hear what the Bible says:
“He who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.” Psalm 121:3-4
Our Father in Heaven took action.
God is always concerned about your life. The first thing God did was to command his angel to wake me up. It is difficult to wake up someone who has barely slept for an hour but this angel did it. I found myself waking up. I looked at my clock and it showed 2:30am.
“Why have I woken up at this unusual hour?” I asked myself.
God put a thought in my mind.
Some Christians are waiting for a loud voice from God like that he used as he spoke to Moses. In my case God spoke to me through his thought he put in my mind. As I sat on my bed wondering why I had woken up, this thought came to my mind. It was actually the voice of God, but this voice was in my mind. This is what this voice said:
“Let me check if my young kids are sleeping well.”
This was God’s voice that prompted me to dress up and walk to check on our children’s room. I remember I walked as I sang a certain worship song that I do not remember the title. I found that the kids were sleeping well. As I prepared to leave, God planted another thought in my mind. God’s voice said:
“Let me check if the window of this room was properly closed“.
The moment I drew the curtain to check on the window I saw a person standing in the middle of our front yard! He was one of the robbers! I quickly raised an alarm that woke up my whole family and sent these robbers fleeing. I also rang the Police patrol vehicle that responded promptly. This is how our loving father in heaven saved me from these night robbers. Indeed you have a loving Father in Heaven.
