Aren’t you glad to know that your heavenly Father expects your angel to guard and protect you?

In this day and hour, we need to be particularly aware of the role of angels in keeping us safe. God never promised we wouldn’t face problems in life or walk through hard times. He did not promise that life would always be rosy, but God did give us His Word to teach us how to live victoriously. God proves it with thousands and thousands of Bible promises and then enforces His Word with angelic back up.

Psalm 91 is one of those promises of protection. Actually, some Bible scholars believe God gave Psalm 91 to Moses as the Israelites crossed the Red Sea and headed into dangerous territory on their way to the Promised Land.

Interestingly enough, this particular supernatural insurance policy didn’t wait to pay up when the Israelites had problems, and it doesn’t wait to pay up when we have problems. It’s God’s plan to keep His children out of danger altogether.

But let me ask, did God want His children to experience 40 years of wilderness? No!  God wanted His children to live in the Promised Land of plenty, but God couldn’t change what His children had chosen for themselves because He gave them the right to choose. God knew His promises in the 91st Psalm—along with God’s angelic enforcers—could keep His children safe from anything, anytime, anywhere.  

Again, Psalm 91 does not tell us, “Thou shalt cruise through life on a bed of roses and everything will be wonderful with never a challenge, never a problem.” That might have been nice in a perfect world before Adam’s fall, but as a result of Adam’s disobedience we can pretty much expect the devil to raise his ugly head and try to cause trouble for us while we live on this earth. Actually, we can count on it.

But Almighty God sent Jesus to restore to us what Adam’s treason cost mankind, and God promised throughout His Word to guarantee our protection, safety, defense, healing and health and long life. He’s also promised that if we holdfast to the promises of God, we can triumph over the devil in every circumstance.

God’s Word isn’t just a storybook, and Psalm 91 isn’t just a nice poem. God’s word is alive and full of power because all scripture is given by inspiration of God. Even more to the point here, God wraps up this supernatural insurance policy by pointing out that He’s assigned angels to enforce its provisions.

Angelic Enforcers
Let’s focus on two verses of Psalm 91, where God points out that He’s assigned angels—or we could call them supernatural adjusters—down here on earth to enforce Psalm 91. He’s telling us, “I’ve got special agents and enforcers assigned to your case. They’re supernatural insurance adjusters who will adjust whatever needs to be adjusted for you. They will enforce your protection policy.”

Notice the kind of heavy duty back up God has promised us in these two verses.
For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
(Ps. 91:11-12 NKJV)
Verse 11 says that God has given these angels charge over you. Or, in other words, He’s assigned angels to guard and protect you. Then verse 12 says, “In their hands they shall bear you up.” Those are some mighty huge angels if they’re big enough to hold an adult in their hands. In fact, these angelic enforcers do a lot more than hold you up; they’re assigned to watch over you and take care of you.

These verses remind me of how parents sometimes ask older siblings to keep an eye on younger kids when the parents are gone from the house. A parent might say to an older child, “I’m leaving you in charge.” What does the parent expect? The parent expects that even if the older child remains in the background, he or she better know what’s going on and be alert. If trouble shows up, the parent expects the older child to protect the family and take charge.

Aren’t you glad to know that your heavenly Father has given your angel the same kind of assignment? He expects your angel to guard and protect you, defend you, watch out for you and take care of you.
