THEME : ANGELS ON ASSIGNMENT.
MEMORISE : For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. PSALM 91 : 11.
READ : DANIEL 6 : 19 – 22.
19 Then the king arose very early in the morning, and went in haste unto the den of lions.
20 And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?
21 Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.
22 My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths, that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR : NUMBERS 30 – 31 AND GALATIANS 2 : 1 – 14.
One of the markers indicating that a life is blessed of God is the receipt of support from heaven. Such support can be manifested as heavenly bodies working to advance the objectives of the blessed. When the wise men from the East were looking for Jesus, and they did not know where He was, it took stars to guide them there ( Matthew 2 : 1 – 11 ). If God could use the stars to lead the wise men to Jesus, He can still do so now. The Lord will use the stars to direct your customers, contracts and favours to you this season in Jesus’ Name! The good thing about this is that whenever God decides to use anything to assist or direct you, they will not fail you or stop half way, just as the star successfully led the wise men all the way to Jesus.
Moreover, as the blessed of the Lord, when Heaven supports you, the beings that live in Heaven, such as angels, are also released to advance your cause. For instance, when Elijah was hungry, discouraged and depressed, so much so that he asked God to take his life, it was an angel that God sent to bring him food ( 1 King 19 : 4 – 8 ). Also, in our Bible reading, when the hungry lions were ready to pounce on Daniel as their potential prey, it was an angel that came to seal their mouths for as long as he was in their den. Have you been thrown into the den of spiritual, physical or financial lions? The Lord will send his angel to rescue you from harm’s way in Jesus’ Name! The supporting operation of angels was also manifested when Sennacherib besieged King Hezekiah and his people ( 2 Kings 19 : 32 – 37 ) ? It was just one angel that God sent to their rescue, and he single-handedly destroyed 185,000 soldiers in just one night. In the Name that is above every other name, both seen and unseen forces of darkness that are mobilised against you and yours from the air, land, sea and under the earth shall be razed down today by an angel of the Lord! In addition, it was an angel that warned Joseph in a dream of Herod’s intention to kill the child Jesus, and the angel told him to escape to Egypt ( Matthew 2 : 13 – 15 ). After the death of Herod, an angel also informed him in a dream that it was time to return home, and he directed him on where to go to specifically ( Matthew 2 : 19 – 22 ). Angels are always on assignment to help the blessed. If you are blessed of God, you can also send angels on assignment to help your cause. The Holy Spirit revealed this truth about angels in Hebrews 1 : 14 ;
“Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?”
From today, you shall be a recipient to angelic visitations and guidance in Jesus’ Name.
ACTION POINT :
Thank God for the angels on assignment over your life, family and church.
