The angel of the LORD camps around those who fear God, and he saves them. PSALM 34:7

Chiffon wings and meringue sweetness? Perhaps for angels in the gift books and specialty shops, but God’s angels are marked by indescribable strength. Paul says Christ will come with his mighty angels (2 Thessalonians 1:7). From the word translated mighty, we have the English word dynamic. Angels pack dynamic force. It took only one angel to slay the firstborn of Egypt and only one angel to close the mouths of the lions to protect Daniel. David called angels “mighty warriors who do what he says and who obey his voice” (Psalm 103:20).

No need for you to pray to angels; they won’t listen. Their ears incline only to God’s voice. They are “spirits who serve God,” responding to his command and following only his directions (Hebrews 1:14). Jesus said they “are always with my Father in heaven” (Matthew 18:10). Only one sound matters to angels—God’s voice.
