Blanket of Love

Tuesday, April 25, 2006

Psalm 61
  1. For you have been my refuge, a strong tower against the foe.
  2. I long to dwell in your tent forever and take refuge in the shelter of your wings...

This is a testimony of servant of God from Romania. You may know that Romania was once ruled by the Communist. They forbade all kinds of religious worship. Preaching the gospel was strictly forbidden and many were persecuted because of their faith. This person was once such servant. He traveled from place to place preaching the Gospel of Christ. Thus, he was under continuous surveillance. He had to seek shelter in the mountains for days on ends from both man and beasts. The wolves that prowled the region were less of a threat than the police after him.

One night, exhausted from the days work he lay down to sleep in the forest. It was particularly cold and so he prayed, "Lord, please send me a blanket or I will freeze to death." With that he fell into a deep sleep. He woke up early next morning and it was still dark. As he rose up to stand, an animal bolted away from beside him. He wasn't particularly sure what animal it was. It could have been a dog or a wolf but it had kept him warm all night. All that mattered to him was that he couldn't have gotten a better blanket. A blanket of love sent from heaven above.

The Lord provides!
