DEPLOY YOUR ANGELS Wednesday, 11 March 2015
“Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” Hebrews1:14 (KJV)
Angels are God’s agents sent to minister for you. Angels are powerful. They are spirit beings. They honour God and serve Him. He deploys them whenever He wants to do damage to the kingdom of darkness. Our text today says that they have been sent to serve the heirs of salvation; we are the heirs of salvation. Don’t worship angels, because they are meant to serve you.
Right now, angels are operating around you and all over the earth. The fact that you cannot see them with your natural eyes does not mean that they are not present. It is just like how you know that sound waves are present all over the place even though they are not visible. In the same way, there are angels around you. The angels are there in your house. But many times they are dormant, because you are not deploying them. And until you deploy them, they can do nothing. Yet they are there to help you. How can you deploy your angels? Simple: it can be done through your speech. They hearken to the word of your command once it is in line with the word of God.
According to the scripture, angels excel in strength. They do God’s commandment and hearken unto the voice of His word (Psalm 103:20). As the believer takes his place to speak as God’s authorized agent, he deploys angels on various assignments. That is why I know you will surely succeed.
In 2 Kings 18 and 19, it was the angel of God that fought for King Hezekiah of Judah when Sennacherib, King of Assyria, came against him. He boasted that he would finish Jerusalem and Judah. Then Hezekiah began to cry to God. And in response to King Hezekiah’s prayer, the Lord sent one angel to the Assyrian camp and smote them. That night 185,000 soldiers were slaughtered. This act was a clear confirmation of the word of God found in Isaiah: “Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake” (Isaiah 54:15, KJV).
