On Monday, I received a call from my sister in Palm Bay Florida. She and her family had been evacuated from their home because it was in a line of wildfire which was quickly approaching their property. She sounded panicked so I offered to pray with her on the phone.
I prayed that the blood of Jesus covered their home and property and declared that no weapon formed against their property would prosper. I thanked the Lord that none of their belongings would be touched by fire. I prayed that the peace of God would guard their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
After we said “Amen” my sister, who is Mormon, said “wow, thank you”.
I then called a friend from LCC to share the prayer I prayed with her. She prayed and loosed angels to guard the perimeter of my sister’s property and that through this experience my sister and her family would be ministered to; that they will see the awesome power of God which would result in their conversion.
Later that night I called my sister to check in. 51 homes in their community had burned. Her husband went to see what had happened. The fire burned a tree in the adjacent vacant lot; the tree stood in the center of that lot, exactly where a house would have been. The fire jumped their street and burned a house across the street.
The fire stopped 8 feet from their property. None of their belongings or property burned.
I know our God is an awesome God. He is Jehova-Nissi, the Lord our banner. Praise God. Thank you Jesus for protecting my sister’s property and showing her Your goodness.
Through this my testimony about Psalm 91 is strengthened. I am grateful for the teaching I am under at LCC and that my leaders and pastors share with us how to read and apply God’s word to our life situations.
