53 Reasons, It is God's Will to Protect you from Accidents

Message To Tiger Woods 3




Posted by Ambassador T. Brikins

‘’Some time ago the papers carried a story of a lone survivor of a shipwreck marooned on an uninhabited island, who managed to build a hut in which he placed all he had saved from the wreck.

 He prayed to God for rescue and anxiously scanned the horizon every day to signal any passing ship. One day on returning from a hunt for food he was horror- stricken to find his hut in flames and all his possessions consumed.

 What a tragedy! Shortly after a ship arrived. ‘’We saw your smoke signal and hastened here, the captain explained. The survivor thanked God for the incident’’. Dr. Herbert Lockyer wrote in his book, ’All the Promises of the Bible’’.

What an excellent illustration for Rom 8:28.  ‘’… we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose’’.

The concept or principle underlying protection against accident in the spiritual space springs from the truth that though accident is an unforeseen or unexpected event God whom the believer  serves is All-Knowing. His promises testify to this truth. Since man was created in the image and likeness of God Who is a Spirit and the Father of spirits, man has the  capacity to hear from God and enjoy these protective privileges.


‘’ Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them’’. Genesis 1:26-27

 

 By this redemption man became a spirit possessing a soul and living in a body. With his spirit, he relates with the spirit world; with his soul he relates with the mental, intellectual or soulish world and with his body he relates with the physical world through his five senses.  

The word through the Holy Spirit creates communion with the Spirit realm which controls activities in the physical realm. That’s why Jesus said, ‘’ it is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life’’. John 6:63. He also reminded Satan that ’’… Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God, ’during His conversation with Satan who is also a spirit being.

The life of Job demonstrates vividly that accidents like every other thing happens or is decided in the spiritual realm before they happen in the physical realm. 

‘’ There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. 

 And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters. 

 His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east. 

 And his sons went and feasted in their houses, everyone his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them. 

 And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, it may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually. 

  Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. 

  And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, from going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 

 And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? 

 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, doth Job fear God for nought? 

 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. 

 But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face. 

 And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD. 

Satan Takes Job's Property and Children

 And there was a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house: 

 And there came a messenger unto Job, and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding beside them: 

 And the Sabeans fell upon them, and took them away; yea, they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. 

 While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. 

 While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Chaldeans made out three bands, and fell upon the camels, and have carried them away, yea, and slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee’’.

 While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house: 

 And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. ‘’ Job 1:1-16

One thing that is apparent from the above encounter and the following scripture is that God provides a hedge of protection and sometimes with fire for His children. And even when He permits Satan to cause accidental havoc there still exist a window of grace.

‘’ For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her’’. Zechariah 2:5.

It is no secret that God wants you protected from accidents. Below are scriptures revealing His will to protection and safety towards you. Since faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ I believe these scriptures will build up faith in you and put you in total safety over accidents. It is like building your house upon a rock. ‘’ Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:   And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. ‘’ Matthew 7:24, 25

 ‘’ There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand. ‘’ Proverbs 19:21

1.     You are created by God to exercise dominion over circumstances

‘’ Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them’’. Genesis 1:26-27

 

 

“The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our sons forever, that we may observe all the words of this law.’’ Deuteronomy 29:29

2.     God sees you

‘’ For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him…’’ 2 Chronicles 16:9

3.     You have angelic protection against accidents

‘’ The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them’’. Psalm 34:7 

 

4.     Acknowledge, confess and be thankful over previous protections, safety and defence from the Lord

 

5.     Let the Redeemed of the Lord Say So

‘’ O give thanks unto the LORD, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;

And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.

They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.

Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.

Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.

And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation.

Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;

Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High:

Therefore he brought down their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help.

Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses.

He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands in sunder.

Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

For he hath broken the gates of brass, and cut the bars of iron in sunder.

Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.

Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.

Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses.

He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare his works with rejoicing.

They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;

These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.

For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.

They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.

They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end.

Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.

He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!

Let them exalt him also in the congregation of the people, and praise him in the assembly of the elders.

He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the water springs into dry ground;

A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.

He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into water springs.

And there he maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;

and sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.

He blessed them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffered not their cattle to decrease.

Again, they are finished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.

He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way.

Yet Getteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock.

The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.

Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD’’. Psalm 107: 1-43

 

6.     The Elshadai God is enough

 ‘’ He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most high shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. 

 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. 

 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. 

 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. 

 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; 

 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. 

 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 

 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. 

 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; 

 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. 

 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 

 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. 

 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. 

 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. 

 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. 

  With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation’’. Psalm 91:1-16.

30.                        Apostle Paul overcomes accident at sea

‘’ And when it was determined that we should sail into Italy, they delivered Paul and certain other prisoners unto one named Julius, a centurion of Augustus' band.

And entering into a ship of Adramyttium, we launched, meaning to sail by the coasts of Asia; one Aristarchus, a Macedonian of Thessalonica, being with us.

And the next day we touched at Sidon. And Julius courteously entreated Paul, and gave him liberty to go unto his friends to refresh himself.

And when we had launched from thence, we sailed under Cyprus, because the winds were contrary.

And when we had sailed over the sea of Cilicia and Pamphylia, we came to Myra, a city of Lycia.

And there the centurion found a ship of Alexandria sailing into Italy; and he put us therein.

And when we had sailed slowly many days, and scarce were come over against Cnidus, the wind not suffering us, we sailed under Crete, over against Salmone;

And, hardly passing it, came unto a place which is called the fair havens; nigh whereunto was the city of Lasea.

Now when much time was spent, and when sailing was now dangerous, because the fast was now already past, Paul admonished them,

And said unto them, Sirs, I perceive that this voyage will be with hurt and much damage, not only of the lading and ship, but also of our lives.

Nevertheless the centurion believed the master and the owner of the ship, more than those things which were spoken by Paul.

And because the haven was not commodious to winter in, the more part advised to depart thence also, if by any means they might attain to Phenice, and there to winter; which is an haven of Crete, and lieth toward the south west and north west.

And when the south wind blew softly, supposing that they had obtained their purpose, loosing thence, they sailed close by Crete.

But not long after there arose against it a tempestuous wind, called Euroclydon.

And when the ship was caught, and could not bear up into the wind, we let her drive.

And running under a certain island which is called Clauda, we had much work to come by the boat:

Which when they had taken up, they used helps, undergirding the ship; and, fearing lest they should fall into the quicksands, strake sail, and so were driven.

And we being exceedingly tossed with a tempest, the next day they lightened the ship;

And the third day we cast out with our own hands the tackling of the ship.

And when neither sun nor stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then taken away.

But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete, and to have gained this harm and loss.

And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for there shall be no loss of any man's life among you, but of the ship.

For there stood by me this night the angel of God, whose I am, and whom I serve,

Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them that sail with thee.

Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me.

Howbeit we must be cast upon a certain island.

But when the fourteenth night was come, as we were driven up and down in Adria, about midnight the shipmen deemed that they drew near to some country;

And sounded, and found it twenty fathoms: and when they had gone a little further, they sounded again, and found it fifteen fathoms.

Then fearing lest we should have fallen upon rocks, they cast four anchors out of the stern, and wished for the day.

And as the shipmen were about to flee out of the ship, when they had let down the boat into the sea, under colour as though they would have cast anchors out of the foreship,

Paul said to the centurion and to the soldiers, Except these abide in the ship, ye cannot be saved.

Then the soldiers cut off the ropes of the boat, and let her fall off.

And while the day was coming on, Paul besought them all to take meat, saying, This day is the fourteenth day that ye have tarried and continued fasting, having taken nothing.

Wherefore I pray you to take some meat: for this is for your health: for there shall not an hair fall from the head of any of you.

And when he had thus spoken, he took bread, and gave thanks to God in presence of them all: and when he had broken it, he began to eat.

Then were they all of good cheer, and they also took some meat.

And we were in all in the ship two hundred threescore and sixteen souls.

And when they had eaten enough, they lightened the ship, and cast out the wheat into the sea.

The Shipwreck

And when it was day, they knew not the land: but they discovered a certain creek with a shore, into the which they were minded, if it were possible, to thrust in the ship.

And when they had taken up the anchors, they committed themselves unto the sea, and loosed the rudder bands, and hoised up the mainsail to the wind, and made toward shore.

And falling into a place where two seas met, they ran the ship aground; and the forepart stuck fast, and remained unmoveable, but the hinder part was broken with the violence of the waves.

And the soldiers' counsel was to kill the prisoners, lest any of them should swim out, and escape.

But the centurion, willing to save Paul, kept them from their purpose; and commanded that they which could swim should cast themselves first into the sea, and get to land:

And the rest, some on boards, and some on broken pieces of the ship. And so it came to pass, that they escaped all safe to land’’. Acts 27: 1-44

32.                        Whether it be persecution, rebellion, despondency or darkness stir up your faith for God’s got your back.

Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me’’. .

 For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.

Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.

Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.

I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the LORD.

I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;

And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.

for my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.

I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me.

I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.

For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.

But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God.

My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.

Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake.

Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.

Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!

Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.

Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.

For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee.

O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewarded the proud doer.

Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the
