This is Part 3 of our Angel series which is all about Guardian Angels. If you missed the first two you can find the first one on Angels Q & A and then the second part was on Archangels.
These posts are written from a biblical perspective because there is so much information that is already online that is not biblical. In this post we are focusing on Guardian Angels.
Guardian angels are personal angels. These are angels that are specifically assigned to God’s children. Yes, you have angels that are assigned to you. Their job is to protect you, and to assist you in the purpose and calling that God has on your life.
At what age will my guardian angels be assigned to me?
(Matthew 18:10) “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.”
You must remember that God knew you before you were formed in your mother’s womb (Read Galatians 1:15-16 ) He already knows your purpose; therefore, your angels are there to guard your way to get you to your destiny. Through prayer and reading the bible we find the will and purpose of God for our lives. It is only through our own disobedience or lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6) that we go off the path that God has planned for us.
What does your guardian angel do?
They deliver messages. (Hebrews 1:14 NIV) “Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?”
They deliver you out of trouble. (Psalm 34:7) “The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.”
They protect you. (Psalm 91:10-12) “no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. 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.”
In order for the angels to be guarding you in all of your ways means that they are constantly with you. They are always there whether you feel, see or hear them.
Will my guardian angels do what I tell them to do?
It depends. Are you asking for something that is within God’s will? Then, yes. Are you asking for something that is not in the will of God? Then, no. (Psalm 103:21) “Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts, you His servants who do His will.”
Now remember that there are fallen angels/demons that are on the earth so someone (psychics,mediums and sorcerers) call actually command demons and they are actually the one fulfilling the request. They could be praying to or commanding familiar spirits. This is why it is very important that your requests for angels go through God. Here is what God has to say about consulting to psychics and mediums (Leviticus 19:31)“‘Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the Lord your God.”
Since you are praying to God and He is the one that is telling the angels what to do then it is not important for you to know the name of your angels.
If you think of your life – from birth you have some angels assigned to you, may have more after you receive Jesus as your Savior because you will be under a greater spiritual attack, then have even more assigned to you once you start your ministry, get even more angels once you start traveling and preaching. You would definitely need to have more angels due to your calling and the size of your ministry in the spirit.
Just think about the Elijah’s ministry, when he was surrounded by the enemy army God sent countless angels to help him (2 Kings 6). So you don’t need to be concerned with how many angels you have or their names. God will send as many as you need at the time you need them. In Daniel 10, there was the Archangel Michael that kept the prince of Persia (ruling principality) at bay while the Archangel Gabriel delivered the message to Daniel. So we see that there were 2 Archangels needed to get the job done.
In our next post we will share some Prayer for Angels.
