For the angel of the LORD is a guard; he surrounds and defends all who fear him.” (Psalms‬ ‭34‬:‭7‬ NLT)

In the miracle season of 1967 and the Six Day War, we know that Israel is not destroyed by overwhelming odds. In a matter of six days, facing four competent enemies, the small nation miraculously quadruples its land and retakes many holy sites including Jerusalem and the temple mount. Israel reports 760 casualties, while the Arab deaths hover somewhere around 18,000 men (Bard, 1967 War). The conflict is filled with many first hand accounts of awe-inspiring happenings that are hard to explain.

Just as God protects Israel, as can be seen in recent happenings as well, He also takes care of us. Angels are among us to protect us. While greatly misunderstood, they do exist, fighting the enemies of our soul and keeping us aimed in God’s direction.

As God leads your life, know that part of it is accomplished by angelic beings. I would have no clue what they look or act like (although I don’t believe they are women), but the Bible speaks of their interaction among us. Trust that your guardian is on the job! Just don’t make him work so hard! You are loved! Have a great week!

Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!” (Hebrews 13:2 NLT)

I was heading into the Post Office one day when the Lord asked me to go speak to an older homeless man digging thru a dumpster. Not being the most appealing thing to do at the moment, I reasoned that I’d get my mail issues taken care of first, then see about it. But when I went outside, there was no man or shopping cart anywhere around. This verse immediately came to mind & haunted me.

Could it have been an angel? Who knows. But what God does desire from us is 1) obedience to His daily instructions, and 2) to show loving kindness to all of His children. He even tests us at times just to see if we are committed to doing Life His way.

Always obey God. Do good to God’s people everyday, but especially when called upon. You never know if it could be a legitimate need or an angel in disguise! You are loved today!
