Quote from cnn news:
"I knew he wanted me to go. I prayed and in some cases, when there's water in front, and there's water to the left and water to the right, and the trees and brush and bushes, and I said which way to go? And I looked up and he said go that way.
And I'm looking at water. I said, Lord, you sure? He said I gotcha. And as soon as I started walking, the ground under the water was solid, so again it's only about a foot and a half deep. "
My question is what does "I gotcha" mean here? Notmally it mean I understand,but does it fit in the context?
Thanks.

I gotcha = I have got you. (Meaning , I have caught you or got hold of you)

These spellings 'gotcha' and 'wanna' etc., should be reserved for comic books

I think it would make it more clearer if you expanded it to: "He said I gotcha ya back".

In other words, "I am watching over you (and I will deliver my messages through hiphop speak as your mind cannot comprehend anything else)".
