As we were returning home, looking back we both had a sense of unease regarding our flight while we were still at the airport. We boarded and settled into our four hour flight. The entire flight seemed a bit bumpy, but nothing severe. Yet the unease continued, so I often went into the restroom to pray in the spirit.
As we were preparing to land, I gazed out the window at the beautiful scenery and lights of the evening landscape of Denver. In an instant, I went from seeing the land to seeing the sky...then the land and then the sky...back and forth as the plane tip its nose then reared up again uncontrollably. Not only did it dip front to back, it was tossed from side to side as well, almost as if something was trying to flip it over. The cabin exploded into screams of terror, as the attendants yelled, "Grab your children and strap your seatbelt across your neck...I mean your lap!" Fear filled the cabin.
For less than a split second, fear knocked on my heart and I entertained opening the door. But then I looked at my daughter as she gripped my hand, and held her tummy where her precious son was growing. And then I became angry. Very angry. This was NOT the will of God for His children! This was the work of the devil, and he would NOT have his way! As faith began to rise, I placed one palm on the plane as I held my daughter's hand with the other, and I declared, "NO! This plane WILL NOT CRASH, in JESUS' MIGHTY NAME!" I began to pray (loudly, Krista later shared!) in the spirit, soon followed by declaring aloud the promises of God found in Psalm 91. Especially that no evil would befall us, nor come near our dwelling. I declared that currently the plane was our dwelling, and therefore NO EVIL could come near. I continued to stand on His Word. Though it seemed like an eternity, soon the plane smoothed out and we landed safely. Not one word of what had just transpired was ever spoken by the crew, though my daughter later described it as a "direct assault" against us.
I am listening to your Psalm 91 teaching at Tabernacle Church, and just noted that the date of your teaching was approximately 6 weeks before this experience in 2015! In your teaching you mentioned that you would like even one testimony of someone on a plane that was going down, that trusted the Lord and declared Psalm 91. I have no doubt that we were in trouble. And I have no doubt, no doubt at all, that God's faithfulness to His Covenant of protection was alive and active that day! I had been soaking in His promises for five years at that point, speaking and declaring His Psalm 91 Covenant over my family, and He showed Himself mightily to my daughter and I in such a way that we will never forget. Our Father is so good to us!
Thank you, dear Peggy Joyce, for sharing this life-changing revelation with the world! Krista, Hudson (four years old now!) and I are here today because you did! The Lord introduced me to your book Psalm 91 in 2010 on Sid Roth. I have since bought a dozen books to give to family and friends, for this book has literally transformed and saved my life!
