At my age, I don’t wake up with the same fire and passion that I once possessed. Beyond the spiritual realm, I find inspiration from music. One of the more recent artists which touched me is Set My World on Fire by Britt Nicole. On her Neon Feather Remix album, this song combines a great beat with moving lyrics. The chorus asks God to come and give her wings to help fulfill her dreams in life.
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways, Psalm 91:11.
According to the Psalmist, this isn’t as far fetched as you think. However, what does it mean to command the angels and what method ensures that you will be able to usher angels into action? Based upon the words of Moses, obedience to God is a major factor depending upon how careful you are in following the Lord’s commands. Yet, asking angels to come and give you wings seems more like fantasy rather than reality.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them, Psalm 34:7.
Perhaps, holy fear is the missing link, preventing Christians from seeing their prayers answered. David is not the only one who made this connection. King Solomon claimed fearing God is the beginning of wisdom. Although I can’t recall a time I experienced angelic intervention, Jesus once said,”you don’t have because you haven’t asked.” While this topic is foreign to me, in your time of need, don’t be afraid to cry out to God to come and give you wings to overcome the mountain standing in your way.
