His angels keep us safe

Angels are not the stuff of religious fancy. They are substantial, ever-present spiritual evidences of God with us.

One of the most basic human desires is for safety. Much of today's news is devoted to the subject of where one's safety and security lie and who is responsible for it. Interested citizens have inaugurated neighborhood watch programs, Child Keepers, Crime Stoppers, and similar groups. Industry has developed tamperproof packaging, antiskid brakes, car seats for small children, and other safety innovations. Much legislative action is directed toward establishing legal safeguards in terms of one's well-being.

Even as we applaud the efforts of citizens and legislators in this vein, we still wonder if this is all that can be done. The alert Christian may ask, But what about God? Are God and prayer relevant to safety? Christian Science, being Biblical, says "Yes!" We can rest our confidence on God. As the Bible teaches, trust in God opens the door to faith and understanding. The beloved ninety-first Psalm gives this assurance: "He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways." Ps. 91:11.
