Verse of the Day: Hebrews 1:14
“Are they not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation?” – Hebrews 1:14
The writer of Hebrews in verse 14 is telling us something about angels, namely that they are inferior to Christ. Look at verse 13. “But to which of the angels has He ever said, “SIT AT MY RIGHT HAND, UNTIL I MAKE YOUR ENEMIES A FOOTSTOOL FOR YOUR FEET?” This the Father spoke to the Son and David wrote it in Psalm 110:1, “A Psalm of David. The LORD says to my Lord: “Sit at My right hand Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.“. He did not speak it to any angel, but only to the Son.
In our focus verse, we see they have a great purpose. They are ministering spirits sent out to help the Christians in this life. Imagine that, when we are in need, there are times when God Himself comes, but there are times He sends an angel to assist us. And these are incredibly powerful spirits. We have nothing to fear when either God or angels are around. This should encourage us greatly. No matter what comes against us, there is something more powerful then the enemy that is attacking.
So, go out there and fear not. The enemy does not stand a chance. Just trust that no matter what, you are ultimately in no danger. It may seem that things are bad, but always remember, there is someone by our side and it will ultimately be good in the grand scheme of things.
