Now an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Go south to the road–the desert road– that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” Acts 8:26 (NIV)
What an amazing and wonderful thing it is to hear of someone who gets a message from an angel of the Lord! When we hear of someone who is this blessed, do we just marvel at the thought? What kind of believer can have these thrilling encounters? What kind of faith do we need to be so fortunate as to have God send angels to bring us a direct message? Would we need to be worshippers that are well tuned to hearing the voice of God? To hear angels would we need to be Christians who are aching and straining to detect each and every movement from above?
It is up to God to decide if and when to send us real encounters with His angels. But these experiences can happen when the Lord finds souls that are ready for it. Should we roll up our sleeves and work fervently along with the Holy Spirit within our hearts to tune them to His workings? Could we prepare our lives and make our souls available to Jesus. Who would love to meet an angel today? Who wants a messenger from God to bring them a personal encounter from above? If we are interested enough, could we turn to the One Who can prepare us now? Shall we ask Jesus to make us receptive enough to hear His angels? Shall we start today?
We want to hear from You! We want to be so close and so receptive to Your movement that we could even hear angels! Help us learn to be this in tune with You now we pray!
