“He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” Ps. 91:11.
We don’t speak about our guardian angels as we should. Are they forgotten beings? Have we become silent about their presence because we no longer believe in their existence or has the thought of angelic involvement in human nature become so commonplace, that we take them for granted? Whatever our reasons for not acknowledging the roles angels play in our human experiences and encounters, they do exist. They minister to the needs of humans in our time as they did in bible times.
Ellen G. White shares that “a guardian angel is appointed to every follower of Christ. These heavenly watchers shield the righteous from the power of the wicked one. This Satan himself recognized when he said: “Doth Job fear God for nought? Hast not Thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side?” Job 1:9, 10. The agency by which God protects His people is presented in the words of the psalmist: “The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them.” Psalm 34:7. The angels appointed to minister to the children of God have at all times access to His presence.”
We can confidently enter our day, knowing that we ALWAYS have companionship and guardianship of our angels of God. Our hearts can rest in peace because our guardian angels are by our sides ready to minster to our every need – they never sleep or take occasional timeouts. We have access to the guidance and protection of heavenly beings when we are driving, interacting with our friends, spending time alone or with family, leading our work teams or moving through the mundane tasks of our day. Wherever we find ourselves, we are never alone or without hope – we have God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and holy angels who are near us and ready to offer help to us.
Today, thank God for charging His heavenly angels with the task of watching over us with sleepless, compassionate eyes and protecting us from the assaults of the enemy 24-7.
