The ‘oomph’ behind God’s angels

Angels figure prominently in the Bible. In both the Old and New Testaments we find these representatives of God—thoughts from God that represent His nature and the nature of His spiritual creation—comforting the sorrowing, strengthening the weak, directing the wanderer, protecting the endangered, uplifting the downtrodden, and inspiring hope and healing! 

It was an angel that strengthened Daniel when he’d just said, “There remained no strength in me” (Daniel 10:8). Angels were sent to Jacob when he had to leave home (see Genesis 28:12). And an angel went before and behind the children of Israel in the wilderness, guiding and protecting them (see Exodus 14:19).

God’s angels are just as present, important, prescient, and powerful today as they were then. “The Lord will command his angels to take good care of you,” the Scriptures assure us (Psalms 91:11, New International Reader’s Version).
