Angels are our servants. We could say that angels are, for lack of a better term, "robots." In effect, they have been programmed, and the only thing they can do is what they have been programmed to do.

If we push their "on" button, they operate. If we push their "off" button, they stop operating. We can turn that button on, and we can turn that button off.

Your Angel Can Be Active or Dormant in Your Life
In other words, before we can have the ministry of angels working in our lives, we must first understand what it is that causes angels to be "activated." I use the word "activated" because angels can remain dormant.

Although angels are always with us, they can remain dormant and never even begin to operate and minister for us as God intended.

How do you activate the ministry of angels on your behalf? The answer is found in Psalm 103:20, "Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, HEARKENING UNTO THE VOICE OF HIS WORD."

We understand from this verse of Scripture that angels hearken unto the commands of the Lord—unto God's Word. Angels still do this today. God gives angels their instructions, and they listen and obey.

That also means that when we say what God's Word says—when we speak God's Word—we loose or release angels to work on our behalf. But when we speak words contrary to what God has said, we bind or hinder our angels from working for us.

How To Speak With the 'Voice of God'
It is important for us to know that angels hearken unto the voice of God. It is also important to know how God's voice is manifested. God's voice is not only manifested by God's speaking from His throne or through the Holy Ghost—the voice of God is manifested when believers speak in line with His Word!

When we speak God's Word, we are speaking with the "voice of God!"

You see, the Bible is God speaking to you and me. And God said in Isaiah 55:11 that His Word will not return to Him void. In other words, when the Word of God is spoken out of the mouth of a believer, it is the same as God the Father speaking it, and the angels hearken unto God's Word spoken by a believer the same way they do when God himself gives a command from His throne!

We can command our angels to minister for us by speaking on the authority of God's word.
