Touched By an Angel
Hebrews 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those
As I write this blog, I am looking out my window beholding the beautiful sunshine sifting through the big oak tree located in the back yard or our parsonage home. I also see the effects of the wind gently move its leaves overhead. In addition, I had stepped outside earlier this morning and felt the cool and refreshing effects of 69 degree weather that was blessing the little town of Arcadia, Florida, as well as my face.
But in reading one of my morning devotions, I was reminded of one of the wondrous unseen gifts given to me from God, His ministering spirits, the angels! As Charles Spurgeon reminds us they bear us up in their hands lest we dash our foot against a stone, they rejoice over the return of the prodigal to his Father’s house, and they welcome the advent of the believer to the King’s palace above.
If our eyes could be opened, we should see horses of fire and chariots of fire about the servants of the Lord. And yet the Hebrew writer tells us that Jesus is superior to the angels. Praise and thanksgiving be offered to Him who sends out the angels to render service to the saints, those who have inherited salvation in Christ! I can feel the brush of angel’s wings, I see glory on each face.
Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place!
