Put Your Angels to Work

For He shall give His angels charge over you.
(Psalm 91:11)

And of the angels He says, “Who makes His angels spirits and His ministers a flame of fire.” … Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation? (Hebrews 1:7, 14)

Bless the Lord, you His angels,
Who excel in strength, who do His Word,
Heeding the voice of His Word.
(Psalm 103:20)
Got angels? If you know Jesus, God has given His angels charge over you. They are ministering spirits sent forth by God to minister on behalf of all those who inherit salvation. They’re in your corner.

Do you keep your angels busy or idle? They minister on behalf of those who inherit salvation. Are you giving them something to work with by claiming the provisions of your inheritance?

God’s angels do His Word. They heed the voice of His Word. Whenever they hear the Word of God being spoken in faith, they get busy. It does not matter whether the Word comes from God’s lips or ours, His angels will always obey the voice of His Word.

Many Christians have angels sitting around and waiting — longing — to hear them speak the Word of God so they can perform their duty. But often, all they hear is their Christians whining and complaining about problems and shortfalls — and they can’t do anything with that. Rather, we need to focus on the promises and provisions of God, and start proclaiming them over our problems. That will release our angels to operate; they will spring into action and apply the covenant provisions on our behalf.

God angels? Are you putting them to work by claiming the benefits of salvation over every area of your life? Let the Word of God fill your heart with faith. Then boldly proclaim it with your mouth — and get your angels off the unemployment line.
