ANGELS ON ASSIGNMENT

July 23, 2016

In the Kingdom of Heaven there is a vast innumerable number of mighty, intelligent, powerful, immortal, noble, obedient angelic spirits who were created by God. In accordance with His orderly, systematic character God gave them different assignments: some were worshippers, some were messengers, some were agents of destruction, some were guides, some were protectors, some were ministering spirits, and a large portion were in God’s army. Throughout the bible you can read numerous accounts of angels fulfilling their assignment; however, on today I would like to focus on the angelic ministering spirits.

Both in the Old and New Testaments many events are shared concerning these angelic ministering spirits that assist individuals in their time of need. You can see one in the life of Elijah when he was running from Jezebel (1 Kings 19:5-7), in the life of Jesus in the Mount of Olive (Luke 22:43), in the life of Abraham’s servant as he travelled to Nahor to find a wife for Isaac (Genesis 24:40) and in the life of Peter when Herod put him in prison (Acts 12:7-11). On today I thank God these ministering angels are also assigned to kingdom believers.

When I looked up the Greek meaning of the word “ministering” as it is found in the scripture it gave the definition, “to be a public servant, to perform charitable functions.” In the Old Testament times David knew there were angels with him for he stated in Psalms 34:77 “The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.” In the New Testament Paul stated in Hebrews 1:13-14 “But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” Knowing there are angels assigned to minister on your behalf should bring comfort to every believer. We have the right to ask God to send our angels before us, to work out problems, to fight on our behalf, to protect us as we travel, and to assist us in areas that we feel are insurmountable.

Aren’t you glad that you have a King in your life that is so concerned about you that He goes beyond human assistance and assigns angelic help to you? Therefore, when problems arise don’t become stressed but remember you have heavenly help from your King and your angel. Knowing this, I suggest you don’t delay, but use them today.
