Angels at Work

“Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?” (Hebrews 1:14 NKJV)

All around us there’s a supernatural world, an invisible world. And around us right now are thousands of mysterious created beings called angels. Most of them are holy. (And I’m sorry to say that some of them are not. Some are fallen angels.)

The Bible mentions angels in both the Old and the New Testament. In fact, it contains nearly 300 mentions of them.

However, angels work undercover, a little like the Navy SEALs. They don’t draw attention to themselves; they just get the job done. And they’re not around so we can have extended conversations with them. They’re very interesting creatures who work behind the scenes.

We can find a number of instances in the Bible where angels intervened. For example, the book of Acts tells us that an angel spoke to Philip and directed him to go to the desert. Philip went, and God used him to help a man from Ethiopia come to faith.

In Acts, we have the story of Peter, who was taken to prison. King Herod already had put James to death, so the church prayed, and God sent an angel at night to wake up Peter and lead him out of the jail.

Angels have a specific ministry in the lives of Christians. God dispatches them from Heaven to assist us, to encourage us, to minister to us, and to even protect us. Hebrews 1:14 says of them, “Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?” (NKJV)

So, you can be confident of this: you have angels actively involved in your life.

Sometimes, we don’t realize this is a spiritual world, and we get caught up in other things and forget that we’re children of the Most High. Our kingdom is in Heaven. And we’re ambassadors of the kingdom of God.
