God’s activities are always guarded by God’s angels. Just from reading the stories surrounding the birth of the Messiah, there was a significant uptick in angelic activity. The angel Gabriel spoke with Zacharias concerning the birth of John, and not long after that, he visited Mary about the birth of Jesus. Joseph was visited in a dream by the angel of the Lord. At the birth of Christ, the angel of the Lord spoke to the shepherds nearby in a field. At that time, a heavenly host of angels appeared before the shepherds praising God. After some time had passed, the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph and warned him of the threat on the infant Jesus’ life from King Herod. The angel of the Lord told Joseph where to go and how long to stay.
Matthew 2:13-14 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and stay there until I bring you word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. 14 When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt:
The angels of God are still fiercely working, guarding, guiding, and fighting on behalf of every born-again child of God. Right this moment you are surrounded by angels assigned to your care. You have not been left alone, even though it feels like it at times. The angels don’t want your worship, but they do want your cooporation, as they are messengers of God. The angels of God know how to communicate to you, and they play such an incredible practical and spiritual role in your life. There are angels all around you, but that doesn’t mean you can act foolishly and tempt God. God may send an angel to you this very day in the form of a complete stranger so be alert and attentive especially in the time we live. I sense there is another uptick in angelic activity, so just be ready to hear and do as advised. “Thank you Father, for the angels you have placed to care for us.” Amen.
The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them. Psalm 34:7
