ANGEL – a spiritual being serving as a divine messenger and intermediary and often as a special protector of an individual or nation
In the Bible, God tells us how the angels are delivering messages, accompanying the lonely, granting protection, and even fighting His battles. In many angelic appearances told of in our Bible, angels who were sent to deliver messages began their words saying, “Do not be afraid,” or “Do not fear.”. Angels are actively involved in the lives of God’s people and maybe even in the lives of all people. They have a specific function and it is a blessing to have God send an angel in response to your prayer or in time of need.
Scripture: Exodus 23:20
“Behold, I send an angel before you to guard you on the way and to bring you to the place that I have prepared.”
“Be kind to strangers, because it’s the loving thing to do. Also, you never know – they could be angels.”
