Angelic Help in Spiritual Warfare:
“Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?” (Hebrews 1:14, New King James Version)
This is the key Bible verse for the “Come and See” devotional today.
The angels of God do more than singing and worshiping the Almighty God in heaven. They are dependable warriors with supernatural ability to win any battle. They were the ones who threw the devil out of heaven and have never lost any fight. When speaking of their unbeatable qualities, King David said: “bless the Lord, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word.” (Psalm 103:20, New King James Version).
The battle for the soul and destiny of mankind is fought in the spirit realm of life. Our intellectual ability and physical strength are irrelevant when striving to secure absolute victory in the unseen realm of life. We therefore need angelic help to wage war effectively against the devil and his desolate fallen angels of darkness. Bear in mind, however, that only the angels of The Excellent God excel in strength as carefully noted by King David in Psalm 103:20, above.
The Bible describes, as follows, what happed to the Assyrians when they waged war against the Israelites: “then the angel of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand in the Assyrian camp. When the people got up the next morning—there were all the dead bodies!” (Isaiah 37:36, New international Version). It is very unlikely that our current challenges require such a drastic solution. However, this account suggests that we will prevail in our struggles if we engage these reliable helpers.
It is worth noting that every child of God is entitled to a minimum of sixty thousand angels. This is because whatever Jesus Christ was entitled to during His earthly ministry, we, as joint heirs, have the same privilege as well. This brings to mind Jesus’ response when Apostle Peter cut off the ears of one of the men who came to arrest Him. He asked: “do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels?” (Matthew 26:53, New International Version).
If just one angel could slay 185,000 Assyrian soldiers, what would a legion of angels do when called upon to engage one’s enemies in battle? King David never lost a single battle because he kept his angels busy. Referring to his enemies he prayed: “let them be like chaff before the wind, with the angel of the Lord driving them away! Let their way be dark and slippery, with the angel of the Lord pursuing them.” (Psalm 35:5-6, English Standard Version).
Let us pray: “Father, I thank you for the benefits of salvation. I release my angels against every challenge of my life. Let them fight for me and prevail over my adversaries,” in Jesus’ Mighty Name. Amen.
Bible References: “And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.” (Revelation 12:7-8, New King James Version).
