The theme for today’s daily devotional by David Jeremiah is ”Angels Watching Over Me”
Scripture: But while [Joseph] thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.”
We have questions to ask and decisions to make; we pursue familiar biblical means of decision-making: prayer, biblical principles, counsel, and more. But one thing we don’t often consider is that God might use an angel to direct us.
Think of Joseph when he learned that his betrothed, Mary, was pregnant. A good man, Joseph intended to end the engagement quietly so as not to bring shame upon Mary. But an angel came to him in a dream and told him to go ahead with his marriage to Mary—because her pregnancy was of divine origin. That angelic message led Joseph to marry Mary and become the earthly father of Jesus. Or consider Daniel: For three weeks he prayed for understanding, and then an angel appeared and told him the delay was due to spiritual warfare in the heavenlies (Daniel 10).
Make allowance in your decision making for the ministry of angels. Directly or indirectly, seen or unseen, they are commissioned by God to help you.
Angels will never be kings. They will always be servants.
