A Companion Along My Journey

A Companion Along My Journey 

Psalm 91:11 AMP  For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service].  The word accompany means “a companion on a journey.” 

I remember it well.  It was a summer evening in 1983.  I was living in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma while working at the City of Faith. A friend who lived in Claremont, Oklahoma, had invited me to come and spend the day with her on Saturday. 

My plans were to go early in the morning and then return home late afternoon.  I didn’t want to drive the distance after dark.  We were having such a good time, she asked me to stay a little longer and have supper.

The time passed quickly and it was now dark as I headed for home. The drive was a little over an hour and a half back to where I lived in Broken Arrow.  After coming through the toll road, I decided to get off the highway and take a short cut onto a country road which would save me about 20 minutes.  

Once I got on the country road, I realized it was probably not the best decision as it was very dark and not a good road to be on when alone after dark.  As usual, I often talk to the Lord when I’m driving alone.  This was no exception.  “Lord, it is really dark on this road tonight!”  No more had these words left my mouth when a helicopter flew above my car.  The pilot turned on his spot light shining it on the road directly in front of my car.  He left the light on all the way to Broken Arrow guiding me along the way.  That pilot, probably my guardian angel, became the companion on my journey.  We came to the main road in Broken Arrow and off he went. 

The Lord is so faithful in looking over His Word to perform it.  For He will give His angels [especial] charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service].  Psalm 91:11 AMP. 

 He was faithful in sending a companion to accompany me on my journey.  He cares about every detail of our lives.
