Angels Look After Me

Psalm 91:11-12 For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.

Jogging through woodland with a girlfriend, two people emerged from the trees, gave us a funny look, then continued in another direction. I believe they saw a third person running with us.

Driving home from picking up my boys, I turned right. Another car sped down the hill turning left. He is headed straight for my left side. Where my two year old sat. A near miss.

In a hospital bed with double pneumonia, my mother felt a presence cover her entire body while another presence battled to take her life.

Angels. Supernatural beings sent from on High to do the work of the Lord.

Hebrews 1:14 Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation.

If you are saved, you are safeguarded by angels. Perhaps you have seen or felt their presence. Or not. Entertaining angels unawares.

In secular literature an angel is sweet, meek, and mild. When someone engaged an angel in the Bible, people were scared. The first words from an angel’s mouth was always, “Don’t be afraid.” Angels are large, powerful, and at least a little frightening. For you, fear is unnecessary. They work in your favour. Angels are on your side, diverting fatal situations, opening doors of blessing.

In an age where planes fall from the sky and crashes happen in an instant, it is reassuring to know angels are sent from heaven to look after you. As your family travels separate ways each morning, plead the blood of Jesus, and praise God for angles who avert trouble and provide protection.
