I want to give Jesus all the glory and praise for protecting me and my family from a car accident.
It was past midnight on 23 November 2014 when I drove my sister home in Woodlands. My car was fully loaded with people. My sister, niece and nephew were seated in the backseats while my daughter in the front seat.
My niece was sharing with us how God had protected her and her boyfriend on a heavy snow day in Korea, and I remember the last thing I said seconds before the accident was: "Yeah, that's God’s protection."
I then stopped at a right light at a cross junction for about three seconds when I heard a loud bang. The impact pushed our car to the front and caused all of us to jolt forward. We then hit into the van that had stopped ahead of us, and were jolted backwards.
All these happened within seconds. But praise be to Jesus, I was still conscious. I knew that a car had knocked into us but when I looked into the rear mirror, I did not see anything.
It turned out that the car that hit us, had skidded and landed on the right lane of the road. When I was checking on my family members to make sure that they were all doing okay, I saw a drunk driver walking towards me.
I opened my car door and at that very moment, there was this supernatural calmness and peace. I had totally no fear or anger, and I was able to look straight into the eyes of this young guy, who was around mid-20s, and asked him calmly: “You drank?”
Trust me that was definitely not me but Jesus! The driver then nodded and said: “Yes, I did”.
Still very coolheaded, I said: “Let me call the police.”
To cut the long story short, it was amazing that none of my family member was hurt — not even a minor cut, pain or whiplash!
As for me, I only felt some pain on my left kneecap, which was operated a few years ago. But praise be to Jesus, the X-ray found no fractured bones, and the metal plate and screws inside were still intact. Though, I was limping slightly, I was still able to attend the 3rd service on the same Sunday afternoon!
I want to thank God for leading Pastor Prince to emphasise to us the importance of God’s protection, and the power of confessing Psalm 91 over ourselves every morning.
