Topic: Angels Heed The Voice of His Word
Scripture: As I was praying, Gabriel, whom I had seen in the earlier vision, came swiftly to me at the time of the evening sacrifice. He explained to me, “Daniel, I have come here to give you insight and understanding. The moment you began praying, a command was given. And now I am here to tell you what it was, for you are very precious to God.” – Daniel 9:21–23, NLT

Psalm 103:20 tells us that angels heed “the voice of His word” (boldface mine). Who gives voice to God’s Word? YOU do. Every time you quote Scriptures out loud, you are giving voice to His Word, and angels will respond.
When you say, “Father, I thank You that no evil shall befall me today, nor shall any plague or disease come near my dwelling,” angels harken to the voice of the Word of God being spoken. Angels cannot read your mind—so speak forth His Word!
I want to encourage you to study the Word of God and memorize a few verses. When you feel swamped by fear, learn to speak out God’s Word. God’s power lies dormant until you speak it forth. When you do, it becomes real and powerful in your situation and comes against whatever you might be facing.
Hebrews 1:14 says that God’s angels are “all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation” (boldface mine). Notice that it doesn’t say “minister to” but “minister for” those who will inherit salvation (that refers to children of God—you and me).
That’s an important distinction—“minister for” means that they are waiting for our instructions. We need to speak to activate them. They are waiting to respond to our words; they will not automatically look into every need that we have.
You activate angels when you declare, “Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence.” Trigger your heavenly army when you proclaim, “A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come near you.”
Our Lord Jesus Himself demonstrated the importance of speaking aloud God’s Word in the wilderness when three times He said, “It is written” and quoted God’s Word. I don’t know about you, but I intend to speak forth God’s Word!
