On Saturday, August 13, 2018, I had finished The Safety and Protection Guidebook for Law Enforcement Officers and sent it to my editor. On Monday, I was preparing to go visit my children and in Pennsylvania and Maryland. With this significant project finished, I could take a deep breath and relax.
Around 11:30, I felt impressed to take a break and go into our bedroom and sit in our La-Z-Boy recliner and look out our bay window over the backyard and just relax a little bit.
“I want to cover the United States of America with the protection of Psalm 91!”
I recognize this is the voice of the Holy Spirit. It was so real and so loud within me that I was shaking. “I want to cover the United States of America with the protection of Psalm 91!” was repeated.
I saw a huge shield with Psalm 91 on it covering the United States of America like a dome. I started to weep, tremble, and shake. I realize this was a God moment, a God encounter.
I knew I needed to capture this moment and write this down. I got up and headed to the kitchen table, where I had my notebooks and writing materials laid out. I kept feeling in my spirit that there was a verse of scripture, that had something to do with covering the whole earth with God’s knowledge as the seas were covered with water.
As I wrote the vision, I asked the Holy Spirit to direct me to that verse in the Bible. Since it was around 11 o’clock, I went to the book of Isaiah and turned to Isaiah, chapter 11. Verse nine was highlighted.
You know that through the power of the Gospel even the most broken people and situations can be made whole again. Your support brings amazing awakening to new hope and purpose to men and women behind bars. Those who once broke the law are transformed and mobilized to serve their neighbors, and the cycle of crime is replaced by a cycle of renewal!
