“Some people have entertained angels without knowing it.” Hebrews 13:2 NIV
There are angels that move among us. Those who have not been spiritually enlightened think it’s just a religious way of thinking. But that’s because they allow their intellect to neutralize their faith.
We have had angels in our midst from the very beginning.
-An angel shut the mouths of lions for Daniel.
-An angel went before Israel’s army guaranteeing their victory.
-An angel showed up in a storm to let Paul know that he’d survive a shipwreck.
-An angel opened prison doors for Peter, saving his life just before his execution.
The Bible shows us that angels provide us with protection. In Psalm 91:11 it says, “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways”. Think about some of your “ways,” It’s good to have protection, right?
Maybe your cancer was detected early, or you barely escaped a dangerous accident, or you felt impressed in your spirit to not go somewhere only to realize what trouble you would have been in if you did. Those were more than just lucky breaks.
Jesus said in Matthew 18:10, “See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels… always see the face of my Father in heaven”. Angels even watch over our children. Maybe that’s why kids survive things that make parents weak in the knees.
So the question is: Has God done away with His secret service? Are angels sitting on their hands drawing unemployment checks in the heavenly places? Absolutely not! They’re still on the job.
