Do this with me. Close your eyes, relax, now I want you to see your MIGHTY WARRIOR ANGELS surrounding you. Just stay right where you are and take a good look at them. Swords drawn, ready to do battle on your behalf.
Now how do you turn these angels from statutes just standing there to action? With the word of God. Angels hasten to the word of God. They respond only to His word. This is why it is so important that you know the word, so that you can set your angels into motion. You have to be able to speak the word of God to them, so that they can go into action.
Here is an example: When you send your kids off to school each day, before you send them, do you pray over them? Everyday first thing I pray over Rob and I and our children and parents. I pray PS 91 over us, that the Lord would send His angels to encamp around us, to surround us throughout the day, to keep all harm and evil away from us, no matter where we are, in the workplace, at home, in our vehicles, and Lord send them to encamp around my children and our parents as well. But most of all, Lord, keep us safe and in your protection this day, keep us under your annointing, under your covering, under your wing Oh Lord, and in your favor. Thank you Lord that we have your excellent divine health from the top of our heads to the soles of our feet and everything in between. Thank you Lord, that my children and parents walk in this as well. Thank you Lord for our Salvation and I call each one of my children saved in the name of Jesus. Thank you for their salvation Lord. In Jesus name AMEN AMEN AMEN!
How long did it take you to read that above paragraph? Well that is all the time it takes for you to make sure your children are covered each day before they walk out the door. AMEN! Surely you can spare that little bit of time to cover your child. You wouldn't let your child walk out in the snow without shoes on to go to school would you? Well, it is even more important that you cover them with the word of God before they leave. AMEN! My boys are both grown, but I still pray over them and their wives every day. They still get in vehicles and drive, they travel, they go to work, they still need God's protection in their lives. They still need their angels activated by the word of God. AMEN! We never get too grown up that we do not need our angels protecting us.
PS 91 v 10-12.....No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone......
How did Jesus defeat the devil? With the word of God. He said it is written, and quoted the devil scripture everytime he tempted Him. The devil even quoted scripture back to Jesus, trying to trick Him, only he was quoting in wrong context and Jesus knowing the word, quoted it back to him in the correct context.
Matt 4 v 5-7....Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set him on the pinacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written: He shall give His angels charge over you, and In their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone." Jesus said to him, "It is written again, 'You shall not tempt the LORD your God."...
So here is my question to you. If Jesus had to know the word, (and HE IS THE WORD), and use the word to fight His battles, why would you be any different? Why would you think that you can get the job done without the word of God? How do you think without studying the word of God and getting the word into your hearts you will be able to defeat your enemies when they come against you? Like I said above, JESUS IS THE WORD, and He knew He had to use the word to fight His enemy. Satan.
If you doubt the powers the angels have, just check them out in the word. One example is when Herod was talking to the people and they were putting him up there with God, and he didn't correct them but instead was enjoying their adoration to him, trying to glorify himself instead of God. Immediately an angel struck him. God's word will win out everytime.
Acts 12 v 21-24....So on a set day Herod, arrayed in royal apparel, sat on his throne and gave an oration to them. And the people kept shouting, "the voice of a god and not of a man!" Then immediately an angel of the Lord struck him, because he did not give glory to God. And he was eaten by worms and died. But the word of God grew and multiplied....
Now close your eyes again, relax, and picture your MIGHTY WARRIOR ANGELS standing at attention around you, waiting for your signal, The Word Of God. Speak the word out loud and put your angels into motion each day. AMEN! Don't leave home without them.
STAY IN THE WORD!
