The Lord will protect you even from small dangers
Psalms 121:3 - He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
You must be aware of the terror that is happening in South Mumbai. I live in Mumbai and on the 26th evening I was coming back from work, on my way a client called me to visit his house which is a few meters away from Cafe Leopold where the terrorist started the firing. I left his house just a few minutes before the shooting took place. I stay nearby to that place, away from the cafe and walked that day to my house. I would not be surprised if the firing actually took place behind me for when I reached home my family members heard the gun shots and thought those were fire crackers since India were winning the ODI cricket match against England. Only when I switched to the news channel I came to know what really happened. Had I been a few minutes late I would have been in the thick of the shooting. If it was not the shooting at the cafe it could have been the grenades and shooting at the Nariman house, for I live in the center of Taj hotel and these two places.
I am sharing this with you to encourage you to always remember that when you know who you are in the Lord, you can always be assured that you are safe from all dangers. Just a few days back (24-11-08) the same Psalms was given to us and today by the same Psalms the Lord is assuring us his protection.
