Yesterday, I shared a friend’s testimony of angelic intervention. While I’m on the subject, here’s a recent story from my own life.
Across the street from my house, there is a building with a security guard. We often wave to him when we leave or return home. Recently he related this experience to us, told from his perspective, about something he saw happen in front of our house:
“Well past midnight, I was startled to see a group of delinquents coming up our silent street. As you know, we don’t usually have that kind of people coming around here. So I was really nervous. There was only one of me, and quite a number of them. What would I do if they confronted me? They were clearly looking for places to break in and steal.
Just then, I looked up, and noticed something that surprised me. In front of your house, there were two big, intimidating men standing. There was one on each side of the door. The troublemakers stayed well clear of them as they continued on their way. I watched them moving on down the street, and I saw that those big men did not budge an inch.
I took my eyes off those tall, muscular guys for a moment to observe how far away the rough group had now gotten. They were nearly out of sight. When I then returned my gaze to where the big men had been in front of your house, they had vanished. I looked up and down the street, and they were no where to be found. In such a split second, there was no where that they could have gone into. They had simply disappeared.”
Hmmm. Two big, buff men standing guard at my house… that then vanished when the menace had passed…
I’ll tell you. It’s a nice thing to have a security guard working on your street. It’s a much nicer thing to have the angel of the Lord on patrol!
Why do you figure God has decided to use angels to guard and protect us, when He Himself has infinite power and could do so without their help? Curious to hear your thoughts on this.
