In a Facebook video that has gone viral on social media, actress Brenda Epperson, known for The Young and The Restless, states that she prayed Psalm 91 over her home and the fire miraculously stopped right at the edge of her property.
“I just kept praying Psalms 91 over our home, ‘whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will find rest in the mighty shadow. I will say of the Lord he is my refuge and my God in whom I trust. Surely, He will save you from the fowler’s snare and the deadly pestilence. A thousand may fall at your side, tend thousand at your right hand but it will not come near you.”
While the actress’ neighborhood was burned to the ground, her property was unharmed.
“We could only evacuate the horses that could fit in our trailer which has three horses. And then all of our neighbors had borders so all of their horses, 25, 30, horses went in that pen. And so there were 25 horses there and the fire stopped. God stopped that fire, right at our property line,” Epperson said. “Every horse was okay. They had water, they didn’t even have ash on them.”
Epperson and her family are actively trying to help her neighbors, particularly by helping drive people to their homes. They are also providing food, supplies and any additional items that will help out.
“Two gentlemen we drove down…it was just so devastating to watch, to drop them off and to watch them walk down this dirt road. Everything was burnt and they just said, ‘My home is gone,’[ and they just walked into the distance,” Epperson said.
“The good that’s going to come out of it is I believe that revival, that God is going to wake us all up. I know my life is changed and I just want to share the love of God even more with everybody,” Epperson said.
This wildfire has now become the deadliest in California history. The death toll has risen to 66 with even more people unaccounted for.
