The theme for today’s daily devotional by Joel Osteen is ”Angelic Power”
In the age of fantasy and fiction brought to life on movie screens, we have become used to seeing the powers of malevolent beings—think of Darth Vader in Star Wars or Sauron in The Lord of the Rings. They are powerful enough to dispatch individuals or armies.
Such powerful beings are not the stuff of modern fiction alone. When Sennacherib, king of Assyria, brought his massive army against Jerusalem during the reign of King Hezekiah, an angel of the Lord delivered the city by destroying 185,000 Assyrian soldiers in one night (2 Kings 19:35-37). How? We are not told; we are only told that the power of one angel was sufficient to destroy an entire army. If angels have that kind of power, they certainly are able to intervene on your behalf when you are in a spiritual battle.
When powers of darkness are arrayed against you, trust that God is able to deliver you. An angel of the Lord may be the means He uses.
God sends his angels to protect us and his Word as a star to guide us.
