Psalm of the Day: God Will Command His Angels to Guard You–Psalm 91:11-12
“For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone” –Psalm 91:11-12.
This verse reminds us of the powerful allies we have through life’s battles: God’s Angels! Angels are spiritual warriors who guard God’s people — His faithful sons and daughters. You and me. They help guide us toward all the right paths, while guarding us from all the wrong ones (v 12).
As you prayerfully meditate over these Words, think of the love God must have for you. Think about all that He has done for you! Not only did He sacrifice His only begotten Son so that you could enjoy an eternal life with Him, and not only does He provide for you all the days of your life, but He also commands His heavenly angels to watch over you. To carry you when things get tough; to catch you as you’re about to fall (v 11). God loves you and He wants you safe. So the next time you’re feeling worried, anxious or afraid, reflect on this promise. You are not alone, my friend. You never have been. God is with you. And not only is He with you, His angels are too.
Daily Prayer to Our Guardian Angel
“Angel of God,
My guardian dear,
to whom His love
commits me here,
Ever this day
be at my side
to light and guard
to rule and guide.
