Recently, Lynn caught my attention in a zoom meeting when she said, “Let’s talk about the good guys---ANGELS - - and how we partner with them."
And with that she launched into an informative and exciting teaching. She pointed out that:
- “You are never alone and never have been alone.”
- “As believers, we have the angelic realm around us 24/7.”
- "There are millions of them on earth now to serve the saints who have inherited salvation.”
- "We each have an angel assigned to us prior to birth."
She referenced several scriptures as an example of this:
“See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven. (Matthew 18:10 NIV)
For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone." (Luke 4:10-11 NIV)
Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling, for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone. (Psalm 91:9-12 NKJV)
As Lynn continued this teaching, I have to admit that my mind wandered off to the morning of Friday, May 10, 2013, when I know that I know that “my angels surrounded me and were in charge."
It happened like this:
It was Mother’s Day weekend. I had left my home in Orange, Texas at 4:30 A.M., headed for Georgia to spend Mother's Day with my mother. About an hour into the trip, while traveling down Interstate 10 in Louisiana, I heard a loud BOOM! All of a sudden, my body shifted into a laid-back position. I became disoriented and was not in control of my car.
At some point, I got back into driving position, and I was traveling straight ahead in the right lane, as if nothing had happened. But, I knew something had happened. I then saw an 18-wheeler truck pull over to the shoulder of the interstate, and my first thought was that he had seen or heard something go wrong with my car, and had pulled over to help me, so I pulled up behind him.
The driver got out of his truck and walked up to the right side of my car, and I asked, "What happened?" He responded, "I am so sorry, but I dozed off to sleep, and when I woke up, you were there in front of me and I couldn't stop and rear-ended you."
"You hit me," I questioned, as I struggled to see him because my glasses had gone missing from my face. I asked the driver to help me look for them. He found them on the floorboard behind the driver's seat. That's when I realized that the driver's seat had broken upon impact, causing me to be in a laid-back position away from the steering wheel, disorienting me in the process. But "someone" picked me up, put my hands back on the steering wheel, and I had kept on driving down the Interstate until I saw the 18-wheeler had pulled over.
My car looked like it had been squeezed in half. Oh, did I tell you that while I was in my laid-back position taking a disoriented ride down the interstate that "someone" pushed all the other cars out of my path? Not only did my angels literally save my life, but I walked away without a scratch!
We’ve all heard the miraculous story of how God pushed back the water of the Jordan River, and the Israelites walked across on dry land into Canaan. God then gave Joshua instructions to choose 12 men to take a stone and carry it back out into the middle of the Jordan River. They were to pile the stones up as a permanent monument to remind the people of Israel of this amazing miracle. (Joshua 4:6-6)
And so, since my accident, I have a toy 18-wheeler truck that sits on my desk as a memorial of God’s faithfulness to me - The Day He Gave His Angels Charge Over Me!
Do you have a story to tell about the "Good Guys"? Let’s flood the comments with stories of how and when the Lord gave His angels charge over you.
Lynn, I couldn't stop reading this book! It is the best you have written! It's a "self-help-bible-based-do-it-yourself-demon-slaying-victory-winning book" like no other I've ever read. I learned some new prayer points as well as clarification on what exactly does my situation mean. Everyone who reads this will want their bible, notebook and the Holy Spirit sitting next to them as they strategize with the tools you've given! -Barb
