Inspiration Thursday - Guardian Angels
Do you have a guardian angel? Well, there's a very good chance that you have more than one. In fact, you may have a multitude of heavenly hosts at your disposal. The psalmist tells us, "For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all of your ways." (Psalm 91:11 ESV). Life can be difficult, very difficult. For me, it is impossible to imagine getting through this life without the help of the Lord and the angels that He has provided for me. How do you enlist the service of this helpful heavenly host? Like every promise from God, it requires some action on our part. The Bible says, "Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." (Matthew 7:7-8 NKJV). If we seek His will for our lives He will show it to us. If we knock on the door of wisdom that is found in the pages of Scripture, He will open our hearts and minds to absorb the knowledge that is waiting there for us. If we ask for wisdom, guidance, the fruit of the Spirit and those things that God desires for us to have, He will pour them out on us far beyond our expectations.
God is in the business of molding us into the image of Christ and He desires to flood our lives with those things that draw us closer and make us more like our Savior. After being tempted by Satan the Bible says, "Then the devil left Him, and behold, angles came and ministered to Him." (Matthew 4:11) As Christians we are children of the King, and God the Father has made the same angels available to us that ministered to our Savior. Rejoice!!! "You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world." 1 John 4:4) Have a blessed day.
