God’s secret agents, His angels… I’m interested in knowing more about them, although the Bible really doesn’t mention them often. It seems that when they are mentioned, their appearance is almost frightening, which makes me wonder why the image of angels that man makes is always either a beautiful woman or a cute little cherub. No way am I complaining. I have collected angels for years – from Jim Shore to Precious Moments. I have quite a collection of angel figurines, etc… I think the more angels I have around me, the better protected I’ll be. No, I don’t really believe that – but it sounds good, doesn’t it? I think I need to get a new angel now!
It comforts my spirit to know that the Lord sends His angels to protect me. Sometimes I can tell without a doubt that I was spared from something awful, like a near miss when I’m driving. I always pray before I drive my car – anyone else do that? I know God hears those prayers and sends me help!
One day I was late getting to work. It seemed I was hitting every red light along the way, and then I had to stop for a train! Well, that’s just all I needed! There was no way I was going to clock in on time. I couldn’t understand why everything was working against me when I was in such a hurry and racing against the clock. The answer was soon revealed to me.
As I was finally able to get past the railroad track, I saw a horrible accident at the next intersection that involved at least four cars and a large truck. I believe that being delayed by that train kept me safe. Now, why those others were in the accident, I don’t know. I wouldn’t hazard a guess about that. I did send some prayers for everyone involved, that’s for sure!
God loves and cares for us so much! In this life we will face trials and temptations, but through everything, isn’t it wonderful that our Lord hears our prayers and inhabits our praise? Then we get Heavenly helpers in the bargain! I talk to my angels – do you ever do that? No, I’m not weird – but I do believe they are surrounding me, so… sometimes I talk to them!
I like this video – be patient because it takes him a while to get started – but it’s really good!
My Father’s angels all protect me… everywhere! They’re all around me, above me, beneath me, beside me! Have you read Billy Graham’s book about angels? I highly recommend it!
We can trust our Heavenly Father to take good care of us every day of our lives! Have you thanked God for sending you angels lately? I’m so glad they are with me. 🙂
