We know God created angels and we know that one of the things they do is to protect and serve Christians living on earth (Hebrews 1:13).  Jesus answered the question, “Do we have guardian angels?” in Matthew 18:10. “See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven continually see the face of My Father who is in heaven.” In discussing the worth and value of children, Jesus mentioned that each of us has a guardian angel who is apparently assigned to us when we are children—probably when we were born.

Satan assigns demons to know and work against individuals.  They become familiar with a person’s weaknesses and vulnerabilities so they are better able to attack and defeat them. They probably do the same with others in their family.  It only stands to reason that God assigns certain angels to each person to minister to them and serve them (Hebrews 1:13).

“Angel” is a Greek word which means “messenger.”  The Bible is full of examples of them bringing messages to God’s people (Luke 1:26-35).  I’m sure God still uses them to deliver messages to us today, directly or indirectly.  Remember that angels are separate created beings.  They are not like us.  They never had bodies like we have, and we will never become angels when we die.  We are part of the Body of Christ (Ephesians 1:13; 2:22), the Bride of the Lamb (Ephesians 5:22-33).

One of the things angels do is protect us.  Michael was the great protector of Israel (Daniel 12:1).  There are many times God has protected me from a bad fall, accident, injury or even a car crash.  Since He is sovereign, He could do that from heaven.   But it seems that most of the time He works through angels, using them to hold us upright so we don’t stumble, keep cars from crashing or intervene to prevent injury.

I have heard many stories about how someone appeared at just the right time to offer assistance and help a believer in need, only to have completely disappeared immediately afterwards. These could certainly be angels, who can appear as people when needed (Hebrews 13:2).   When I sense I have been ministered to by an angel, either invisible or manifested as a human being, I thank God.  We are not to worship angels for they are merely servants of God as we are (Revelation 22:8-9; Colossians 2:18).  I feel a thankfulness to the angel provider, even a kinship in that we both serve the same God, but all the credit and glory goes to God, not the angel servant.  God keeps their work hidden from us so we don’t give them credit because the glory only belongs to Him alone.  We aren’t to try to communicate with angels, but it can be very encouraging to know they are present and fighting on the same side as we are.  Truly, we are never alone!

Yes, we have guardian angels.  Knowing that should encourage us in our faith for we are not alone.  God is always with us in person and also through His holy angels. They protect us from Satan and his forces.  We are part of the greatest army of all times, one that will be victorious and reign for all eternity.  We battle, but we do not do it alone.  Praise God for His provision!

Hebrews 1:14  Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?

Think of some times when angels might have been present or helped you.  Thank God for providing them to guide and protect us.
