"For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways."(Psalm 91:11)
"He shall Give" Psalm 91 is one of the anchor chapters in the Boatner family, especially this verse about Angels!! They have been given "charge" over us to keep us. The word "charge" in the Hebrew means, to "enjoin" - to direct or impose by authoritative order. In other words, "they've got this", this being "us". By the direct command of God, they have us under watch care 24/7!! It's not possible for us to even grasp how many times per day they protect us from harm, danger and any evil that tries to come against us. Many times in Israel's history they were about to be taken over by the enemy but God overpowered the enemy by His Angels. "For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake. And it came to pass that night, that the Angel of the LORD went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians an hundred fourscore and five thousand: and when they arose early in the morning, behold, they were all dead corpses."(2 Kings 19:34-35)
I'm glad I'm in the Lord's army and not His opponent, God doesn't have a worth adversary. "He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty."(Psalm 91:1) The word "Almighty" here describes our God, He is Almighty, no foe can withstand a his mighty power. It may look bleak at times in your life, it may even look impossible, overwhelming and beyond your comprehension how God will get you past the mountain in your path. Have no fear, just trust that God has His Angelic host there for you to get you to your expected end. "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."(Jeremiah 29:11). God uses Angels as agents of change and protectors of the righteous path. "But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?"(Hebrews 1:13-14). If you can grasp the vast power of understanding that God has Angels that "minister" to us. The word minister means a "personal aide that offers service", servants for the heirs of salvation!!! We are heirs of salvation with servants from heaven to serve us as we serve Jesus Christ!!
