I was sitting at a very long red light waiting for it to change, when I noticed a man crossing the street. He was chatting on his phone and then stopped right in front of me and stood there as the light changed. I wasn’t sure what he was doing, but then saw a car making a right turn; he was waiting in front of me while that car turned. He smiled and waved apologetically. Before he moved from in front of me, a huge van blew through the red light at a high rate of speed. I would have been killed if that man hadn’t stopped me from going. Was that guy an angel or was he a human sent to intervene? Either way, He protected my life. This is not the first time I’ve seen God use human ‘figures’ to do His bidding and I am thankful that He makes me aware when He does it! God has a plan and a purpose for each of us and I believe that until our mission is complete, He sends His protectors to keep us alive.
Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation? Hebrews 1:14
