God will give the angels charge over you, to guard you in all your ways. Psalm 91:11
I so love this passage- it is so short and so simple but it speaks to everything about our faith and the grace of God.
Our Gracious Father, the Lord, so loves his children that in his wisdom he assigned his legion of angels to our aid and comfort, knowing that in our weakness and during the trials of our lives we would need gentle guidance and protection. He also wanted us to be independent in order to enjoy and experience this wonderful gift of life.
From the moment of conception, these angels of our Lord began to wrap their arms in protection of us. I know personally that many times I have felt the warm embrace and strength of that protection and it has always given me a sense of well-being in my faith.
Physical protection is so wonderful, but even more important is the whispers in my heart, the sense of right and wrong, the feeling of what direction I should go, the added sense of gratitude that I hear for my God and my fellow man, how those nudges have impacted my life and allowed me to see the beauty and purpose of a Christian life.
Prayer: Oh loving Father, thank you for the blessings of guidance and your protection of my soul. In your grace, I have found comfort and in that comfort, I have found redemption and conviction for my sins. I praise thee. Amen.
