Angels Jump Into Action

Angels go into action with the spoken word of God. If you are in danger of something and you speak the word of God over it, the angels jump into action and come running to your defense. The most important part of that statement is that you call out on God and speak His word. The angels can not do anything if you do not speak the word of God and call out for help. When you try to take care of things on your own, you are binding the hands and feet of the angels who are standing by to help. But the word says when the word of God is spoken, the angels hasten to His word. They come quickly. I like to think of them standing by each of them on the ready to be the first one to our defense. The first to be the quickest to respond to the word of God. Just waiting to please God. How would you like that to be your job everyday? Waiting to hear the word of God spoken so you can hasten to do what He asks of you. Well, that is not our job, it is our privilege. You see, we should feel privileged to assist God in our daily lives and the lives of others. God doesn't need our help but He is allowing us to help. Like when you were little and you wanted to help your mom or dad do something that grownups do, and they let you help. You felt so proud to be a helper to them. Well, that is how we should feel when God asks us to be His helpers. To take His word around the world and share it with others. To help feed the hungry, or clothe the poor, or take care of the widows, and orphans. We should be proud and honored that He would even ask us. But so many times we feel like it would be a bother, or cost us too much money. Come on now, be truthful. How many times have you felt the Holy Spirit tug at your heart and ask you to do something and you are just too tired to get up and pray in the spirit for an hour, or you are just too proud to go up to that person and ask them if they know the Lord, or too stingy with your money because you got something else on your mind that you think you need to do with it. Well, then we did not accept the job the angels have. We are not as ready to jump into action at the spoken word of God as they are. You see the dangers we save someone from by giving into the kingdom come in all different ways. We may help to save a child from dying of hunger, or exposure to the world by giving them shelter and food, or we may help to save someone literally by telling them about Jesus and what He did for them and how they can have eternal life. That is what the job of an angel is, being on the ready, to jump into action when God speaks.

PS 103 v 17-22.....But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness to children's children, to such as keep His covenant, and to those who remember His commandments to do them. The Lord has established His throne in heaven, and His kingdom rules over all. Bless the Lord, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word. Bless the Lord all you His hosts, you ministers of His, who do His pleasure. Bless the Lord, all His works, in all places of His dominion. Bless the Lord, Oh my soul!......

So you see, it is not just heavenly beings that are angels of God's but He also has His angels on earth. And those who do His works will be blessed. So hasten to the Lord's voice when you hear Him speak to you, not just for your blessing but so that you may be a blessing to Him by helping one of His.
