peace in the fire


Last night we were shooting a music video in a primary school hall, when 5 guys came in with guns, closing the doors behind them. My Glorious God saved all our lives and kept us safe throughout the whole chronicle. We were told to fall on the ground (5 of us) with our faces to the ground while they took literally hundreds of thousands Rand worth of equipment and cars. They tied our hands behind our backs and asked random questions. I started praying and immediately a peace that surpasses all understanding filled me and a great sort of boldness took over. I know it is the regenerated spirit that had taken control, nothing that came from me, and i just kept my eyes closed while praying. The thought of death occurred and i had tremendous peace in knowing that whatever would happen, Christ would be in control and oh boy He was.
They left and i just remember them saying: ‘you are innocent you don’t deserve to die’. I don’t think they have the ultimate say in death though. The police man i was talking to told me that i was way too calm and that the shock would still kick in... i beg to differ. Shock never came, only a sort of thankfulness and compassion, which is definitely not of me. I slept like a baby and have no anger towards those guys, but wish for them to have a better life. Because a life that involves constant fear is no life at all.

All I know is that He never leaves us and gives peace in all difficult circumstances. It does not mean that we will not face uncomfortable situations, but we can rest in the fact that God fills us with peace in the fire.
No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper

    Soortgelyke getuienis in week gehoor van vroutjie wat naby Hartebees gekaap is, hoe sy net bly bid het & Jesus haar ongedeerd daar laat uitkom het & vrede gegee het wat haar verstand te bowe gegaan het.

  19. Thank you for sharing this beautiful story with me. It takes alot to say calm in the face of fear and to keep your beliefs. This was quite an experience and the fact that you've come out of it with such peace leaves me in awe.
