To some, angels are a myth, a figment of your imagination. For others, the concept of angelic beings is something you grow out of, like a childhood phase. Yet, those who place their trust in the Bible, hold a belief, clinging to the promise of Psalm 91:11, hoping and waiting for the day for this verse to come true.
There appears to be 3 prerequisites before guardian angels are assigned to your side.
1) Individuals need to reach a point of desperation, recognizing that the only safe place on earth is resting in the shadow of God’s wings, Psalm 91:1.
2) In additional, priorities must be reorganized until a trust level develops, leading people to seek first God’s kingdom and his righteousness. Matthew 6:33-34.
3) Finally, to complete the setting for angels to enter the scene, souls must be willing to give up complete control, yielding the reigns of their life to Jesus, Matthew 16:24.
Unfortunately, most Christians want results without the effort on their part. As those who bypass the sweat and tears part of this equation, a lack of results leads to bickering as disenfranchised customers complain to God. Despite these cries, their treatment is no different than that of Israel in Isaiah 1:15. The missing ingredient is perking God’s attention.
Right now, angels are looking down from heaven, waiting to get into the game. However, until the prayers of the saints ask for a hedge of protection, angels will continue to sit on the bench. The words of Jesus is Matthew 7:7-12 are just begging leaders to make specific requests now. “You don’t have because you haven’t asked!” May this blog inspire you to proclaim bold prayers so that guardian angels will be ushered into action today.
