Angels are immortals in the divine service usually sent down to earth to serve and minister to God's people. The Bible says concerning these angels in Hebrews 1:14 (TPT), "What role then, do the angels have? The angels are spirit-messengers sent by God to serve those who are going to be saved." The Aramaic also translated angels as "The spirit-winds-of-ministry" sent to minister to those destined to receive salvation. Angels see it as a great honour to minister to us, because they acknowledge who we are in Christ.

Reference: Psalm 103:20 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

'Bless the LORD, you His angels, Mighty in strength, who perform His word, Obeying the voice of His word!'

Angels obey the voice of God's Word. Who gives voice to God’s Word? We do! Each time we declare God's Word, we give voice to His Word. Whenever the angels hear the echo of His Word, they respond to us. Angels are wonderful and extraordinary creatures that carry out the dictates of your decree; they honour the Word of God from your lips. The Bible says that at the end of Daniel's three weeks of fasting and praying for an answer from God, the angel Gabriel appeared to Daniel and said to him, "...your words were heard, and I have come to deliver the answer to your prayer" (Daniel 10:12 NIV).

Your angels are positioned in your life to take actions and carry out your instructions. For instance, when you speak boldly, 'No weapon formed against me shall prosper' (Isaiah 54:17 NKJV), the angels will come to your aid because you are giving voice to God's Word. Even if you are not able to quote the verse perfectly, they can still come to your rescue, because they serve you with passion.

One lovely evening, a Christian woman was walking down a street while going home after a church service. As she was approaching her home, she was suddenly attacked from behind by a thug who dragged her toward a dark corner in an alley. In that frantic state, she remembered a phrase from that evening's sermon. So she screamed, 'they bear me up in their hands' and instantly, her attacker abandoned her and fled.

What did she mean by, "They bear me up in their hands"? She was trying to give voice to Psalm 91:12, which reads, 'They will bear you up in their hands, that you do not strike your foot against a stone.' In her state of panic, she was able to remember a phrase - "They bear me up" and that was more than enough to flee her attacker. Apparantly, it wasn't her ability to quote an entire verse perfectly that released angelic assistance, but faith in God's Word and His ability to perform His Word. One good word from the Scriptures is enough to send your enemies away and protect you from evil.

You may know so many Scriptures by heart but I can assure you of this: if you don't give voice to the Word, the angels cannot be released to enforce them on your behalf. The Bible does not say that angels obey His Word. It says that 'His angels, mighty in strength, who perform His word, Obey the voice of His word!' In other words, as you give voice to God's Word, His angels respond and carry out your instructions. Therefore, it is to your advantage, if you practise speaking God's Word!

Scripture Reading - 1 Kings 19:7; Psalm 34:7; Matthew 4:11; Acts 10:30-31.

Exuberant Declaration:

I experience angelic assistance from time to time as I give voice to God's Word. By getting filled with the knowledge of God's will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding, my angels minister to me, thereby enabling me to walk in the reality of my inheritance in Christ. Glory to God!
