Psalm 91:11 - 13

For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.  On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.  You will tread on the lion and the adder; the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.

BIG IDEA:  God sends His angel to protect us


  • God protects Christians from and in difficult situations by sending angels to guard them. 
  • Angels are sent by God to protect His children.  They are never to be worshiped as if their power came from themselves.  They are created beings who do their appointed job.
  • Christians can take confidence in the fact that no evil; no enemy, no disease, and no natural disaster can take their life without God's permission.
  • Hebrews 1:14 states that angels are "ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation."  Angels do this by participating in 
    • answering prayers (Acts 12:5, 7)
    • encouraging believers (Acts 27:23 - 24)
    • observing Christian's experiences (1 Corinthians 4:9; 11:10; 1 Timothy 5:21; 1 Peter 1:12)
    • This ministry is not through one guardian angel assigned to each person but rather angels.  Acts 12:15, which is often used to prove guardian angels, may be interpreted incorrectly.
