Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation? (Heb. 1:14 NKJ)
It is amazing to think that God has commissioned angels to minister to every believer in Christ. As a believer, you are the heir of salvation, and the scripture above says that God has sent angels to minister, or help you, in the here and now. You might never see these angels around you, but that does not mean they are not there.
We read of an interesting story of Elisha and his servant when the Syrian army came to attack them. The servant was troubled while Elisha was relaxed, much to the dismay of his servant. Then the prophet Elisha prayed and said “LORD, I pray, open his [the servant’s] eyes that he may see.” (2 Ki. 6:17 NKJ) The Lord answered the prayer, and the servant could then see legions of angels all around them. His fear vanished.
You do not have to see these angels with your physical eyes to know that they are there. You have to see them first with the eyes of your faith. It is critical to understand that these angels respond whenever we act in faith in the Word. When you believe that they are around you, you give them a legal right on the earth to act on the Word that God gave for them to protect you, help you, or make things work for you.
This truth is further illustrated by the words of the psalmist who said, “Bless the LORD, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word.” (Ps. 103:20)
Angels respond to the Word of God. Start believing that there are ministering angels around you and put them to work by faith!
