Psalm 91:11-12 “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.  On their hands they will bear you up so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.”

Have you ever seen an angel?
Before we answer this question we must ask ourselves what an angel might look like.  There are numerous accounts in the bible of angel visitations.  Sometimes they come in all the glory of the Lord, shining like the sun and instilling fear and trepidation in the humans they encounter.  Sometimes they appear as a man; another human being bringing comfort or attending some other need.
You can read books and accounts online of angel visitations that happen in today’s world too.  There is no shortage of stories sharing accounts of angels bearing people up or guarding their ways.  Have you seen an angel?
When we dwell with the Most High we abide in him and him in us and his angels are among us.  We may never notice them but they are truly here.  They may come as a another person assisting, comforting, healing... they may come in all the glory of the Lord instilling fear and trepidation in our hearts but they come because the Lord God commands his angels concerning us, his beloved children.  Amazing!

Lord,
How often have you sent angels to protect and guide me as I wander blindly down a path of destruction?  How many times have your angels protected me as I strove to do your work in this world?  I thank you today for your love and protection.  I thank you for guarding and guiding each of us on our ways.  Help us be a blessing, bringing honor to your kingdom today.  Amen.
