Wanted, Angels For Hire
“Bless the Lord, you, His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word.” — Psalm 103:20
Imagine being so in sync with God that the angels can’t differentiate between who’s talking when you speak His word.
Wow. What an honor and privilege to have that type of status. And yet, Psalm 103:20 tells us the angles heed or obey the voice of God’s word. And who gives God’s word a voice? We do — you and me.
Every time we speak the word of God out loud, we give voice to God’s word. So, when the angels hear the word, they respond.
When you pray, “Father, I thank You for giving Your angels charge over me, to keep me in all my ways,” the angels will rush to their spoken assignment and form a protective shield around you.
According to Hebrews 1:14, angels are ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation.
That’s us, y’all — born again, baptized believers.
If angels are ministering spirits who respond to the verbalized word of God, then when we fail to speak and give voice to God’s word, we put the angels out of a job. As a result, they cannot fulfill their God-given purpose.
Would you want to be found guilty of such an offense?
However, the prerequisite to all this is we have to know the word. One can’t speak what one doesn’t know. It would be like standing before an audience to lecture on how to bake a pound cake, and you’ve never baked one nor knew that pound cake even existed.
How awkward would that be? Very awkward. Most definitely, you would not receive another invitation. And your reputation in that field would not receive rave reviews.
My challenge to you this week is to dive deeper into the word of God. Then, take your personal Bible study to the next level.
“Study to show yourself approved unto God, a workman that need not be ashamed, but rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15). Knowing God’s word for yourself will protect you from the deceptive devices of the enemy. And not only that, but it will keep your angels employed.
