The Role of Angels in Your Life
Angels are intelligent beings created by God. The word angel means messenger and they are, "ministering spirits." The Lord must have wanted us to ponder the marvel of angels because He spoke of them so frequently. Angels are referenced in 39 books of the Bible. What do angels look like? In the Bible these heavenly visitors appear in human form and sometimes in superhuman splendor. Sometimes they were recognized as supernatural, but on other occasions they appeared as run-of-the-mill strangers. We read in Hebrews 13:2 “Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.” Hebrews 13:2
God offers His pure and selfless love through the use of His angels. According to the psalmist, God commands many angels to guard us. God commands those faithful spirits who are nearest to Him, who come from Him and are marked by Him to guard us in all our ways. God’s promise through the psalmist to Jesus applies to us as well.
God created the angels for many purposes, including guiding, protecting, encouraging and strengthening us. Scripture tells us that angels are God’s servants, sent by Him into the world to serve His will. Tthe most important role for angels is praising and glorifying God. In fact, there is a description in the Bible of millions of angels praising God in Heaven. God has also commanded His angels concerning you. Though we may not see them or know they are there, angels are watching over us, transporting blessings into our lives, protecting us from danger and helping us to glorify God better. Scripture proves it.
