Guardian Angels

It’s such a comforting thought that God gives His angels charge over us. This verse says that because we have made God our dwelling place, the Person in Whom we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28), then no harm shall befall us. For He will give His angels charge over us to keep us in all our ways. They will accompany, defend and preserve us. They will lift us up in their hands, so that we will not even strike a foot against a stone Psalm 91:9-13.

This gives me confidence to pray in line with this promise and ask God for His angels to accompany and preserve my family and me in situations that may feel uncertain or unsafe, for example. And I believe He answers at these times and I am reassured that I am in the presence of His angels.

But what about a particular angel? One special angel that the Lord has set aside and assigned just to me, to watch over me for my whole life?

The truth is, Scripture is not definitive on this question, except in the case of children. When Jesus was speaking about children one day, He said to His disciples, “See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of My Father in heaven” Matthew 18:10.

We can infer from this that particular angels are assigned to particular people. But then, from what Jesus is saying here, there is more than one angel assigned.

Whether or not there is a specific angel for each of us, we know that God has commanded His angels to guard us. I am so thankful for this, but then for me personally, nothing compares with knowing that God Himself, Who is all-powerful, is the One protecting me and looking after me. “Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the Lord your God, He is the One Who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you” Deuteronomy 31:6.

In tomorrow’s post, I will be sharing an account of an encounter with an angel. This will coincide with the day that our programme To the Point will be broadcast in the evening, all about the topic of Angels (if you would like to see this, you can view the programme online at 20:30 at www.revelationtv.com or on Revelation TV SKY 581 in the UK).
