God Saw The Chilean Miners

God watched over the Chilean miners and He watches over you too.

After a Chilean mine collapsed with thirty-three (33) miners in it how could they possibly survive? Yet it is even more miraculous that they were trapped there for sixty-nine (69) days under two thousand (2000) feet of rock. This is indeed proof that God watches over us.

Psa. 139 says:

We cannot hide from God. (See verse 7)

We cannot hide in the sky or the grave because God is there too. (See verse 8)

We cannot hide in the depths of the sea. (Verses 9)

God comfortingly says in verse 10 “Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.”

The darkness cannot hide us. The darkness is like light to God. (See verses 11,12)

The Chilean miners were trapped under rock but they were saved by the Rock of Ages. The God who numbers our hairs did not see the miner problem as a minor problem. He knows exactly where we are. They were rescued on October 13th. Whoever said thirteen was an unlucky number anyway?

The same God who saw Jonah in the whale that He had prepared, the same God who saw Daniel in the lions’ den, saw the Chilean miners with their major problem. God is with us in everything we go through. That is why He is called “Immanuel” for it means “God with us.” Isa. 43:2 says:

 “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee

How fitting that the most famous survivor, Franklin Lobos, has a first name that means “Free man!”

So trust in God and let God help you even in “minor” things!
