THE MINISTRATION OF ANGELS
Thursday, 04 February, 2016
There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. (Psalm 91:10-12) KJV.
When our Lord Jesus was on his way from prayer, the bible records that Satan took Him to the pinnacle of the temple, the very highest point whereby Jesus could see the whole of Jerusalem behind Him and country for miles in front of Him. Notice that the word took does not mean that Satan carried Him by his hands or he was walking ahead of Him leading Him to this highest point of the temple but it means that they were walking together being Satan’s idea for them to go there.
Jesus was full of the Holy Spirit and it is Him who led Jesus along the way when Satan was walking besides Him. On our opening verse above, these are the very same words that Satan quoted unto Jesus. It is very important for a child of God to know that the devil knows the scriptures even more than some of us but he cannot apply the word correctly because immediately he left God’s presence, he was ordained with the spirit of confusion; and this is our greatest advantage over him.
‘"All this I will give you, he said, if you will bow down and worship me.’ “Get out of here, Satan," Jesus told him. "For the Scriptures say, ‘You must worship the LORD your God and serve only him. Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to him.’”(Matthew 4:9-11)
The bible says that the Angels of God are the ministering spirits; their duty is to minister to us, to serve us but not to take the instructions from us as they are the Angels of God. They are only mandated by God. If you want to experience their ministry in your life you need to be full of the Holy Ghost, pray more in the spirit; refuse the devil and he will flee from) you(James 4:7 then they will begin to minister to your life.
They will protect you from all sorts of evil. No evil shall come near your residence, for God shall mandate His angels to take charge over you and preserve you in all your righteous ways. They will carry you up in their hands and lift you up above all stumbling blocks (the stones that Satan has placed on your way to hinder you); not a single stone shall hurt your feet.
Dear Lord Jesus, thank you for this revelation of the Word to me concerning the ministry of angels in my life; from now on I frustrate all the activities of Satan concerning my life; concerning my house and concerning my city and concerning every location I travel. I pray that the demonstration of your angels be manifest in my life and that I witness their caretaker-ship from now onwards in Jesus name. I declare and decree that your word works in me and that no evil shall befall me in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen
