Looking back at historical events, we can see how God protected people in the past. When Napoleon's massive French army was preparing to attack Feldkirch, a little town on the Austrian border, the citizens didn't know what to do. When they spotted soldiers on the heights above the little town, a council of citizens was hastily summoned to decide whether the townspeople should try to defend themselves or display the white flag of surrender.
That fateful day happened to be Easter Sunday, so the townspeople gathered in the local church, as was their custom. The pastor rose and said, "Friends, we have been counting on our own strength, and apparently that has failed. As this is the day of our Lord's resurrection, let us just ring the bells, have our services as usual, and leave the matter in His hands. We know only our weaknesses, and the power of God to defend us."
The council accepted his plan, so they rang the church bells. The enemy, hearing the sudden peal, concluded that the Austrian army had arrived during the night to defend the town. Before the service ended, the enemy broke camp and left!
No matter what threatening circumstances are encountered by those of us who truly trust our Lord, our all-powerful God is always with us. He is fully capable of shielding us from harm, even when we are unaware of the danger.

Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
