Speak God’s Word And Activate His Angels
20 Bless the Lord, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word.
Notice that the verse says that angels are “heeding the voice of His word”.
Now, who gives voice to God’s Word? We do! Each time we speak God’s
Word, we give voice to His Word. And when angels hear His Word
given voice, they respond!
The Bible says that at the end of Daniel’s three weeks of fasting and praying
for an answer from God, the angel Gabriel appeared to Daniel and said to him, “I
have come because of your words.” (Daniel 10:12)
So when angels hear you saying, “Thank You, Father, no evil shall befall me
nor shall any plague come near my dwelling,” (Psalm 91:10) they will come to
your aid because you are giving voice to God’s Word. Even if you cannot quote
the verse perfectly, they can still come to your rescue.
This was what happened to a lady in the United States. While walking home
after an evening church service, she was attacked from behind by a man and
dragged toward a dark corner in an alley. In that frantic state, she remembered
only one word from that evening’s sermon. So she shouted, “Feathers! Feathers!”
Her attacker released her and fled!
Feathers? What did she mean? She was actually referring to Psalm 91:4 —
“He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge”.
In that state of panic, she remembered only one word — “feathers”, and it was
enough to cause her attacker to flee. You see, it is not your ability to quote an entire
verse perfectly that releases God’s power, but faith in His Word and His love for
you. And one word from Him is enough to send your enemies scurrying away.
However, if you know God’s Word by heart but refuse to proclaim it, the power
of His Word cannot be released. The Bible does not say that angels heed His Word.
No, it says that “His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the
voice of His word”. So beloved, give voice to God’s Word and see His angels
respond. His angels are activated for your benefit when you speak His Word!
