When God sends you an angel (4)

9 May 2023 ‘My God sent his angel, and he shut the mouths of the lions.’ Daniel 6:22 NIV

Here are some more situations when God might send an angel to help you. 1) When doing the right thing gets you into trouble. Doing God’s will put Daniel in a lions’ den, but God brought him out and publicly freed him. The king declared, ‘Every part of my kingdom…must…reverence the God of Daniel. For…his dominion will never end’ (v. 26 NIV). 2) When you’re tired of battling temptation. When the urge to give in to whatever’s tempting you feels overwhelming, or you think the only way out is to lie, or fear and loneliness are driving you to make the wrong choices. After Jesus had battled temptation for forty days, the Bible says, ‘The devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him’ (Matthew 4:11 KJV). 3) When the load you have been called to carry feels too heavy. When Jessu was facing the indescribable agony of being crucified on a cross, He prayed the defining prayer of His life: ‘“Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.” An angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him’ (Luke 22:42-43 NIV). God will strengthen you through His Word and prayer. Sometimes He’ll send people you know to help you do it. Paul wrote, ‘We were harassed at every turn – conflicts on the outside, fears within. But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus’ (2 Corinthians 7:5-6 NIV). Other times, He’ll send an angel. But whatever method He uses, we can be sure that when we call on God for help, it’ll be on the way.
