HE SHALL GIVE HIS ANGELS CHARGE OVER THEE

Hello Family and Friends,

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?

Bless the LORD, ye His angels, that excel in strength, that do His commandments,

hearkening unto the voice of His word.-

There is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

Then the devil leaveth Him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto Him.-And

there appeared an angel unto Him from heaven, strengthening Him.

The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth

them.-My God hath sent His angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not

hurt me.-The angel of the Lord by night opened the prison doors, and brought them

forth.-

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s

bosom.-For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

Psalm 103:20.-Lk.15:10.-Matt.4:11.-Lk.22:43.-Psa.34-7.-Dan.6:22.-Acts 5:19.-Lk.16:22.-Psa. 91:11

We went to Okinawa to start a church in 1990.  In preparation to leave, my husband laid

his hand on the world map that was on the wall in his office; specifically on Okinawa.

He sent the angels to prepare the way before us;  “For a great door and effectual is

opened unto me… ” (I Cor. 16:9).  The glorious way the Lord worked in the early days of

that pioneer work was in a word amazing!

We experienced such an abundance of blessings,  we would wake up in the morning

and ask, “What are you going to do today Lord?”

 

 

 

 

The Reverend John G. Paton, pioneer missionary in the New Hebrides Islands, told a

thrilling story involving the protective care of angels. Hostile natives surrounded his

mission headquarters one night, intent on burning the Patons out and killing them.

John Paton and his wife prayed all during that terror-filled night that God would deliver

them. When daylight came they were amazed to see that, unaccountably, the attackers

had left. They thanked God for delivering them.

A year later, the chief of the tribe was converted to Jesus Christ, and Mr. Paton,

remembering what had happened, asked the chief what had kept him and his men from

burning down the house and killing them. The chief replied in surprise, “Who were all

those men you had with you there?” The missionary answered, “There were no men

there; just my wife and I.” The chief argued that they had seen many men standing

guard – hundreds of big men in shining garments with drawn swords in their hands.

They seemed to circle the mission station so that the natives were afraid to attack.

Only then did Mr. Paton realize that God had sent His angels to protect them. The chief

agreed that there was no other explanation.

Another account tells of a woman who had given birth to her third child.  It was a

difficult pregnancy and she needed several months of bed rest, both while she was

carrying the child and after her daughter was born.

Her and her husband had built a business together and were  married for 14 years.  She

noticed her husband was growing increasingly distant.  Then one day he didn’t come

home.   To add insult to injury he divorced her for her best friend.

 

 

One late  night in her utter  heart ache and grief, she drove to a desolate bridge out of

town, and wrote a pitiful suicide note to her children, asked them to forgive her, then

left  it on the car seat.   She climbed onto the railing of the bridge to destroy one of

God’s greatest gifts to her, the gift of life, when a man appeared out of no where.  He

took her by the hand and began to gently and soothingly talk to her and  got her to

climb down from the railing.  Where moments before there were no cars, and no

people, lights began to flood the bridge and police were there. Where was the man who

saved her life?  No one saw him, but the woman who was rescued from a fate worse

than death.

What happened to her?    In the aftermath of all her sorrow, she had a bright future and

was blessed with happiness.  Suicide is never the answer!

 

 

 

 

The Lord loves you and I so much.  He cares about everything that happens in our lives.

We have so many divine  and supernatural resources at our disposal.  Jesus is the answer

to every one of life’s questions.    His promises are true.  He doesn’t change His Word.

 What an awesome promise:

 

 

 

FOR HE WILL GIVE HIS ANGELS CHARGE OVER THEE, TO KEEP THEE IN ALL THY WAYS.

 

 

 

Adam Clark says in verse 12 of Psa  91  (In regard to angels).

 

 

 

They take the same care of you as a nurse does of a weak and tender child; lead you,

teach you to walk, lift you up out of the way of danger, “lest thou shouldst dash thy foot

against a stone,” receive any kind of injury, or be prevented from  pursuing your path

with safety and comfort.  Let us remember that it is God to whom these angels belong.

  He is the one who gives them charge, so that they receive their commission from Him.

  They are responsible to him for their charge, so it is from God you are to expect them

and He alone deserves the praise for the help they give us.  This shows that we are not

to praise or worship angels, but the God whose servants they are.

Clark goes on to say :  This quotation from Psalm 91:11, is a metaphor taken from a

nurse’s management of her child: in teaching it to walk, she guides it along plain

ground; but, when stones or other obstacles occur, she lifts up the child, and carries it

over them, and then sets it down to walk again.  This she keeps it in all its ways,

watching over, and guarding every step it takes.  To this St. Paul seems also to allude I

Thess. 1:27  We were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children.  Thus

the most merciful God deals with the children of men, ever guarding them by His eye,

and defending them by his power.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
