God will send his angels to protect us

MOORE — We are told that we entertain angels and are not even aware they are surrounding us. Angels protect, guide, encourage, assist and bring messages from God.

A great example of a visiting angel was when Daniel was in the lion’s den. God sent an angel to close the mouth of the lions and keep him from being mauled and eaten. The angel brought such peace that many artists painted the scene of Daniel in the lion’s den showing Daniel sleeping on a lion with an angel floating above, watching over him.

When Elisha’s servant was terrified of the vast number of the enemy’s army, Elisha prayed and asked God to open the servant’s eyes so he could see the invisible hosts protecting them. What the servant saw was a mountain full of horses and chariots of fire surrounding them. What an awesome sight that must have been for this servant.

Imagine how different our reactions to troubling situations would be if we had our eyes opened so that we could see the angels God sent our way to help us. Typically in troubling times we feel alone. But this is far from what we are told. God sends His angels to help us and even though we can’t see them, they are there just the same.

A perfect example of angels among us happened this past weekend during the U.S. Open Golf Tournament. One golfer hit a shot and it landed on a hill not even close to the hole. As thousands watched the ball rolled down the hill and wound up going into the hole making it a hole-in-one for this golfer. It made history for the first hole-in-one at the U.S. Open.

Watching the replay over and over the only logical explanation was that an angel was there on the greens blowing the golf ball toward the hole.

A second golfer had an almost amazingly incredible shot about the same distance and made an eagle (two shots under par.)

You can bet these two golfers knew God sent angels to help them on this day.

Whatever trouble you face today remember that God is watching over you and will send His angels to help you just when you need it most, whether you can seem them or not.
