While on safari in Tanzania, Africa, recently, we stayed at a place where you weren’t allowed to walk outside your room at night. If you wanted to go to the dining room or reception area (both separate buildings) you had to call the office and they would send one of their staff to escort you – a Masai warrior with a big spear! Why? Because there were often wild animals walking through the camp grounds at night – zebras, buffalo and an occasional lion. Needless to say, we kept close to our Masai warrior.
I’m glad that in real life we have God’s angels watching over us as we walk – even in dangerous places. Jesus seems to indicate that each one of us have at least one guardian angel (Mt.18:10) and the writer of the book of Hebrews tells us that angels are ministering spirits sent to serve us (Heb.1:14).
Be thankful that God’s angels are watching over you today!
Psalm 91:9-12. If you make the LORD your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your dwelling. For he orders his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you with their hands to keep you from striking your foot on a stone. NLT
