Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life? 1 Corinthians 6:3
God’s angelic force! The thought of them can be quite intimidating. The scripture actually talks a lot about them, but most people know little if anything about them. Below is a short list of some of the attributes and descriptions God has told us about angels in His word:
- One angel will put 1000 to flight and two 10,000 – Deuteronomy 32:30
- God puts them in charge of our protection – Psalms 91:11
- Angels excel in strength and listen for God’s word to be spoken to do it – Psalms 103:20
- Angels are messengers from God – Luke 1
- They are ministering spirits to minister for God’s people – Hebrews 1:14
- Angels worship the Lord – Revelation 4 & 5
There are many more references that give us a description of God’s angelic hosts. If you do a search for just the word angel, you will immediately find over 100 results in the word.
The focus of today’s reading says that WE will judge angels about things in this life and in this world. I didn’t understand this for the longest time until I got a job where I drive for 3 – 5 hours per day. I have been in several near misses, many almost collisions and even more close calls. To the point that now even before I get on the road I declare: “Angels, I judge you more than able to keep me in all my ways. God has put you in charge of my safety and protection and you have proven to me that you are well able to accomplish this. Therefore, I judge you worthy of keeping me and my vehicle safe and all those around me. I judge you mighty in strength because you have brought me through many narrow escapes and ministered grace and peace to me along the way.”
I judge my angels well able to watch over me and my loved ones and even those who are just around me. How do you judge your angels? Do you even realize that they are close by waiting to hear your direction? Psalms 103 says they are listening to your words for the “word of God” to do it. Do you release them with the power of grace, protection, wisdom and peace in your life or are they standing by with nothing to do because they do not understand your language? They are God’s ministering spirit sent forth to minister for you (Hebrews 1:14) but it is up to you to send them out.
Today I want to encourage you to release the angels over your life and the lives of those you love. Speak the word of God and send them in the direction that you need some mighty strength poured out on. Judge them worthy to be in charge of your safety and protection because God has put them in charge of it and rejoice with them that one day you will stand beside them in heaven praising and worshiping your Father, just like the apostle John did in Revelation!
