Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for
them who shall be heirs of salvation? Hebrews 1:14
Read; Acts 27:20-25, 20 And when neither sun nor
stars in many days appeared, and no small tempest
lay on us, all hope that we should be saved was then
21 But after long abstinence Paul stood forth in the
midst of them, and said, Sirs, ye should have
hearkened unto me, and not have loosed from Crete,
and to have gained this harm and loss.
22 And now I exhort you to be of good cheer: for
there shall be no loss of any man’s life among you,
but of the ship.
23 For there stood by me this night the angel of God,
whose I am, and whom I serve,
24 Saying, Fear not, Paul; thou must be brought
before Caesar: and, lo, God hath given thee all them
that sail with thee.
25 Wherefore, sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe
God, that it shall be even as it was told me.
Bible in one year: Deuteronomy 6-7, Ephesians 2
When God sends help from Heaven to an individual,
He could send an angelic being to rescue the fellow.
Often times, such an angel takes up a familiar form
while executing the assignment. When this happens,
the recipient of that assistance may not recognise the
angel for who he is. For instance, many years ago, it
was time to build a particular church.
Announcements were made for members to gather
together on a particular date and volunteer
themselves to take part in the work. On the set day,
as they gathered in the morning, they prayed to God
before commencing the work, asking for strength not
to be tired, and that God should send His angels to
join them in the work. After the work started, they
observed three unknown faces that had joined them
in doing the work. Although they noticed that these
men did most of the work, none of them dared to ask
them who they were. At the end of that day’s work,
when they were trying to take stock of the day’s
activities, they wanted to appreciate everyone,
particularly those three unknown people, but they
realised that they had disappeared.
Similarly, when I was about six or seven years old,
one of my elder sisters got married and went to live
with her husband. One day, we met and I asked her
where her farm was. “Not very far” she said, as she
tried to describe it to me. At that age, I could not
determine the meaning of “not very far”, so I set out
to locate it on a particular day. At a point, I did not
know where I was, how to get to her farm or how to
get back home. I realised I was lost! In my own little
childish way, I looked up to heaven for God’s help. By
the time I looked down, I saw a little dog which
showed a very friendly disposition towards me and
was sort of beckoning to me to follow it. So I followed
the dog until I got to my sister’s farm. On seeing me,
my sister asked, “How did you get here? Who
brought you?” “I followed that dog”, I replied. “Which
dog?” She asked. “That little white dog”. Then she
said, “There is no dog on this farm.” When we went
outside their hut, there was no dog anywhere. God
sent His angel to rescue me and the angel took the
shape of a dog to accomplish the mission. The Lord
will go before you. He will send His angel to lead you
on the path to your destiny. May He open your eyes
to see the angels He sends your way in Jesus’ Name.
Whether you see them or not, as long as you are
saved, holy and obedient to God, always
remember that an angel is around you.
