Psalm91:11-12

For He will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

 

Thought for Today

I find this to be one of the most comforting verses in Psalm 91. The Bible tells us that God has legions of angels at His disposal and one of their purposes is to guard us. What I find particularly comforting is that they will guard me “in all [my] ways.” God doesn’t send them to look out for just one thing. He sends them to take care of whatever trouble comes. They can not only guard me from the spread of the virus, but also all of the unintended consequences of the precautions I am taking. They are on the lookout for those who would intentionally do me or my family harm, as well as those whose carelessness might impact us. We have no idea, this side of eternity, of all the things we have already been rescued from by God’s angelic host. They are constantly at work on our behalf, lifting us up and carrying us through hard times like these. Knowing that God has angelic resources at His disposal and uses them for our benefit it a great comfort in these difficult days.

 

Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You for loving me so much that You would even send Your angels to guard and protect me. I am grateful for all then do for me, especially the protection I was unaware of. Amen.
