After my “Our family’s close call” post Tuesday, I received this comment from a dear and sweet friend,
“just seconds made the difference and the angels were definitely watching over them!!! praise The Lord!!”
Oh, YES! I agree!
Another fantastic follower commented,
“I think we are all going to stand before Him someday and see all the close calls and near misses and be simply amazed!”
Amen and Amen!
Over the years I’ve listened to a number of amazing accounts of ministering angels from personal friends. Probably the most memorable came from our pastor. A woman approached him after a Sunday morning service and revealed her astonishing encounter.
The women as financially strapped and needed a certain amount of money to resolve a financial matter or face negative consequences. The woman told our pastor that during our prayer time, she was praying and asking God to answer her prayer and meet her need. In the middle of her prayer, she felt a tap on the shoulder. She turned around and a woman behind her handed her an envelop and said, “I believe this is for you.” The woman turned around and opened the envelop. She opened the envelop and counted out the exact amount she needed to resolve her financial crisis. The woman turned to thank the woman behind her but she wasn’t there.
Not only was she not there, but the pew was full. There was no room on the pew for another person to have been sitting.
The Bible speaks more than 90 times about the existence and ministry work of angels. To me, then, it’s difficult for me to deny they exist. Especially when I’ve had personal experience of their ministry and heard first hand accounts of angels working in the lives of people.
I believe understanding angels and understanding God’s grace are both aspects of God’s character and His love for us that we will one day see first hand and understand completely.
