Psalm 91:11 tells us , “He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways .”
Jesus said , “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.”
Yes , angels are spirits , but some , being creatures of body and spirit , like to have an image , a picture in their minds of their Guardian Angels .
Picture 1 - - - - - - - - - -
Picture 2 - - - - - - - - - -
Picture 3 - - - - - - - - - -
Picture 1 is the one I grew up with , and best suits the hymns and prayers we had for our Guardian Angels . As I grew older it put me off angels .
Picture 2 is bearable .
But as I now become increasingly aware of the battles going on both within and without , I realise that my Guardian Angel needs to be a mighty warrior , much like the image we associate with Michael the Archangel . So I opt for Picture 3 .
I need a warrior angel as my Guardian Angel to help in the power of the Spirit as I am faced with all that the Devil , the Evil One , places around me to lure me .
I need a warrior angel as my Guardian Angel to help in the power of the Spirit as I struggle to say “No” daily to the noise of the world which is very loud in its attempts to persuade me that my needs can be met in the human society in which I live .
I need a warrior angel as my Guardian Angel to help in the power of the Spirit as I tussle with the temptations of the flesh .
I don’t know which image , if any , suits you .
But may your Guardian Angels be mighty warriors for you as you battle on .
