VIDEO The Comfort of Care – Their Angels do Always Behold the Face of God

The Comfort of Care

Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven. Matthew 18:10

Guardian angels are familiar subjects in the world of religious art—robed, winged, ethereal beings who are seen providing protection to people, often children, who are entirely unaware of their presence. A personal guardian angel is a comforting notion, but is there biblical support?

The Bible speaks of angels who guard and protect but does not explicitly say that every believer has a personal guardian angel. There are only two verses that may refer to personal guardian angels: “his angel” (in the case of Peter—Acts 12:15) and “their angels” (in the case of children—Matthew 18:10). In Peter’s case, the statement is made by a servant girl, possibly reflecting a religious or cultural assumption of the day. Regarding children, Jesus’ words are more authoritative but still not explicit. So, we are left with “perhaps” when it comes to personal angels.

But not to the fact that angels are sent by God to care for His spiritual children (Hebrews 1:14). Take comfort—you are watched over and cared for by the angels of heaven.

Angels are the dispensers and administrators of the divine beneficence toward us.  John Calvin
