Angels Watching Over Me

For He will give His angels charge concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. They will bear you up in their hands, lest you strike your foot against a stone. –Psalm 91:11-12

Most Christians read past this promise with very little thought about the magnitude of what is being said. Only after we get to Heaven will we realize all the things from which we were spared because of the intervention of God’s angels on our behalf.

We can all recall close calls where we escaped a tragedy, and there was no explanation in the natural. It is possible “to entertain angels without knowing it” as it says in Hebrews 13:2, but sadly, I believe most Christians tend to disregard the ministry of angels altogether.

Psalm 91:11 says, “For He will give His angels charge concerning you!” What does that mean? When you take charge of something, you put yourself in a place of leadership. You begin telling everyone what to do and how to do it. If angels are taking charge of the things that concern us, God has given the angels, not the circumstances, but the authority to act on our behalf. That same truth is repeated in Hebrews.

Are they (angels) not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation? –Hebrews 1:14

When we look to God as the source of our protection and provision, the angels are constantly rendering us aid and taking charge of our affairs. Psalm 103:20 says, “His angels mighty in strength…obey the voice of His Word.” As we proclaim God’s Word, the angels hasten to carry it out. Faith is what releases this promise to work on our behalf.

Angelic protection is just another one of the unique ways in which God has provided protection. He charged angels to guard us in all our ways.

I am so grateful for all of the instances where I have been blessed to entertain Angels unknowingly. I am even more grateful for every Angelic encounter that I have experienced that provided me with protection and covering, be it mental or physical, in what could’ve been dangerous situations.

Lord, as I proclaim Your Word in faith, these heavenly guards —your angels— have been given charge over me. Thank You for this added protection! In the name of Jesus. Amen

As you go about your day, just know that your Angels have been given the charge to protect you. Follow that nudge when it tells you to go a different route. Done fret when you are later than you expected to be. Just trust that your Angels are working to ensure your safety and protection. All things work for the good of them who love the Lord! 🙌🏽
