Not all angels have wings

I have always been fascinated by Bible references to angels, and have found great comfort from these verses in Psalm 91: “For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone” (11, 12). The psalmist must have seen angels as having tangible, practical value in our human experience.

The founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, defined angels in Science and Health in part as “God’s thoughts passing to man” (p. 581), and further stated that “angels deliver us from the depths” (p. 567). To me this is the most realistic and comforting way to understand an angel. In a time of need, an uplifting and inspired thought comes directly from God to eliminate fear and depression, and clear the way for hope and healing! These angel thoughts propel us to take the right actions, and reveal just what will bless us, just when we need it. Angels are readily accessible and constantly present, gently caring for each of us.
