READ : DANIEL 6 : 19 – 22.
19 Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto the
den of lions.
20 And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel:
and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy
God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?
21 Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.
22 My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have
not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also
before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : NUMBERS 30 – 31 AND GALATIANS 2 : 1 – 14.
One of the markers indicating that a life is blessed of God is the receipt of
support from heaven. Such support can be manifested as heavenly bodies
working to advance the objectives of the blessed. When the wise men from the
East were looking for Jesus, and they did not know where He was, it took
stars to guide them there ( Matthew 2 : 1 – 11 ). If God could use the stars to
lead the wise men to Jesus, He can still do so now. The Lord will use the stars
to direct your customers, contracts and favours to you this season in Jesus’
Name! The good thing about this is that whenever God decides to use anything
to assist or direct you, they will not fail you or stop half way, just as the star
successfully led the wise men all the way to Jesus.
Moreover, as the blessed of the Lord, when Heaven supports you, the beings
that live in Heaven, such as angels, are also released to advance your cause.
For instance, when Elijah was hungry, discouraged and depressed, so much so
that he asked God to take his life, it was an angel that God sent to bring him
food ( 1 King 19 : 4 – 8 ). Also, in our Bible reading, when the hungry lions were
ready to pounce on Daniel as their potential prey, it was an angel that came to
seal their mouths for as long as he was in their den. Have you been thrown into
the den of spiritual, physical or financial lions? The Lord will send his angel to
rescue you from harm’s way in Jesus’ Name! The supporting operation of
angels was also manifested when Sennacherib besieged King Hezekiah and his
people ( 2 Kings 19 : 32 – 37 ) ? It was just one angel that God sent to their
rescue, and he single-handedly destroyed 185,000 soldiers in just one night. In
the Name that is above every other name, both seen and unseen forces of
darkness that are mobilised against you and yours from the air, land, sea and
under the earth shall be razed down today by an angel of the Lord! In addition,
it was an angel that warned Joseph in a dream of Herod’s intention to kill the
child Jesus, and the angel told him to escape to Egypt ( Matthew 2 : 13 – 15 ).
After the death of Herod, an angel also informed him in a dream that it was
time to return home, and he directed him on where to go to specifically
( Matthew 2 : 19 – 22 ). Angels are always on assignment to help the blessed. If
you are blessed of God, you can also send angels on assignment to help your
cause. The Holy Spirit revealed this truth about angels in Hebrews 1 : 14 ;
“Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall
be heirs of salvation?”
From today, you shall be a recipient to angelic visitations and guidance in
ACTION POINT :
Thank God for the angels on assignment over your life, family and church.
