They protect us time after time in ways we are not EVEN aware!
In Matthew 26:53 it says,
"Don't you realize that I could appeal to my Father, and He would, at once, put at My disposal more than twelve legions of angels...to protect us, and He would send them instantly?"
[twelve legions...now that's a BUNCH - a Roman legion varies in number from 3,000 to 6,000]
Beth Moore - Thanks for your wonderful insights into Michael the Archangel!Named my oldest son after him so learning more about him last night was EXCITING!
I love this story about those guys in shining garments - they're all around! There is so much more, to life, than what we see...
Faith demands a willingness to give up what we can see in exchange for what we cannot see. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1. This verse indicates a persuasion or conviction in response to unseen evidence. But just because we can't see it, does not mean it isn't there! Here's a story to prove it...
John Paton and his wife were missionaries in the New Hebrides Islands. One night, hostile natives surrounded the mission headquarters, intent on burning the Patons out and killing them both. Paton and his wife prayed all night, asking God to strengthen their faith. At dawn, they were amazed to see their attackers simply turn and leave.
A year later, the chief of that tribe became a Christian. Paton asked him what had kept him and his men from killing them that night. The chief answered with a question, "Who were all those men with you?" Paton answered, "There was no one with us. My wife and I were all alone." The chief said they had seen hundreds of men standing guard, big men in shining garments with drawn swords. God is not only able to answer our prayer of faith, He delights in doing so!
Something to ponder...Angels Watchin' Over you!
