God Supplies Reinforcements!

O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, you have covered my head in the day of battle. (Ps. 140:7) 

If you determine to live according to biblical standards, be sure that your enemy is seeking to devour you. You will encounter the darts of the devil. Someone put it this way: "Whoever desires to walk with God walks right into the crucible." All who choose godliness live in a crucible. The tests will come. 

But all is not lost. Far from it! Our greatest hope and assurance is that the One in us is greater than the one in the world. We do not face such a formidable enemy that we cannot fight him or stand firm and secure in our decision. Our Lord is the God of hope. . . . His supply line never runs short. When His godly followers are in need, He is there to supply the necessary reinforcements. As you do battle, God will provide for all of your needs. 

Moses: A Man of Selfless Dedication 

In God's Kingdom, He has an established hierarchy. The angelic hosts range from Cherubim (Gen. 3:24), Seraphim (Is. 6:1-7), Archangels (Jude 9), and angels of different classes (Thrones, Dominions, Authorities, Powers, Principalities); (Col. 1:16). Every single one of these angelic hosts have a role to play in God's kingdom. 

As far as how these angelic hosts play a role in our lives depends on who were talking about. The Cherubim, Seraphim, and Archangels act as an extension of God's power and grace from within the God's kingdom whereas the different classes of angels provide a "more personal" touch of God's power and grace in our lives. 

It is from this perspective that God is continuously providing reinforcements to every single one of His children. Those different classes of angels have a specific role to play in our lives. How many of us have heard, seen, or read a story of God's divine intervention in the lives of those people that have been able to provide an eyewitness testimony of being protected by an angel or testimonies of how God has enabled His children to achieve high levels of influence in the arenas of politics, entertainment, etc., etc. 

My dear friends, it is no coincidence that God is continuously on standby to send us reinforcements at a moments notice at our moment of greatest need. God is ready to dispatch a certain angel to you right now, but you must do the following in order for that particular angel to make the visitation possible: 

  1. Say thank you. Be grateful and thankful. Speak to God who sends His angels. "Father I thank You for the angels You have sent before me."
  2. Ask. Be specific.
  3. Believe. Trust that if what you are asking for is the right thing for you, then it will happen in the right way at the right time. Expect positive results. 
  4. Let it happen. Allow God and God's Angels to do Their work.
Thank you so much for reading this far my friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!!. . . . :-).
