MFM Daily Devotional 18 November 2023 MESSAGE
Many people do not understand the ministry of angels and that is why they do not know the responsibilities that will make them enjoy their service to humans. God made the angels to serve us. Angels can come in human bodies and disappear after they have delivered their messages. Angels generally are ministering spirits; they minister to us.
It is disheartening that many believers are missing out on the ministry of angels. The heavenly ambassadors bring information from the Lord to us (Matthew 1:20). They are assigned to accompany us daily to protect us from the enemy (Psalms 91:11). They carry our prayers to God (Revelation 8:3). They fight for us (Isaiah 37:36). They defend us and deliver us out from troubles (Psalms 34:7).
They bring blessings from above to us (Luke 2:10). They deliver answers to our prayers (Daniel 9:21-22). They encamp around us as a covering (Daniel 6:22). They resist dark powers assigned against us. They carry out our instructions backed up by God’s word (1 Corinthians 11:10). They minister to us (Matthew 4:11). They bring us glad tidings (Luke 1:30- 35). They keep guard over our possessions. God uses them to manifest His power and greatness. Also, the Bible affirms that the arch-warrior angel will cast satan into the lake of fire.
The Bible says that God has given His angels charge over us to keep us in all our ways. Everyone has an angel. Some people have hundreds of angels assigned to them. It is important that we always activate the ministry of angels daily in our lives. Consciously instruct them according to God’s word to take over the day in your favour.
In almost every book of the Bible, we see the wonderful works of these spirit beings. When Daniel was thrown into the den of lions, angels were there to shut the lions’ mouths. When the church prayed, God send His angel to deliver Peter from the prison and the evil plot of Herod. God’s angel was there to save Paul when the ship he was travelling abort in had mishap. Angels also ministered to Jesus. Tell God to make His angels to minister to you too.
