God’s Angels Are Everywhere
On the surface of things, it certainly seems as though Satan is lord of the earth, doesn’t it? There are a half dozen major wars going on at any given time. Suicide bombers throw away their own lives to take as many others to the grave as they can. Drug merchants coldheartedly sell chemicals that enslave people and destroy their health and families. Little children are neglected and beaten; the unborn are killed by the hundreds of thousands each year.
That’s what it looks like on the outside. Behind the scenes there is another reality. God is still in charge of every aspect of this sinful and broken world, and he is making everything work together for the good of those who love him. Behind the scenes his holy angels work to carry out his long-range plans, plans that always have a happy ending for all believers.
“He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone” (Psalm 91:11,12). Think of that! Nothing in your life happens by accident. You are under the constant loving surveillance of a God who guarantees your eternal happiness and has many divisions of angels ready to carry out his detailed instructions. Don’t be afraid!
