God’s Angels, Part 3—Protection 

“For there stood by me this night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve, saying, ‘Do not be afraid, Paul; you must be brought before Caesar; and indeed God has granted you all those who sail with you.’”
Acts 27:23-24 (NKJV)

In Bible times God would occasionally commission his angels to intervene in situations to protect and bless his people (please refer to part two for examples of this). As angels are God’s ministers (Hebrews 1:14), wouldn’t it seem fitting that he would still use them today to save lives that are in imminent danger?

One such example is that of Lisa Bowdoin and Anthony Russo,who experienced a terrible car collision on Highway 6 in Crawford, Texas, in March 2009. Lisa’s car slid full speed into Anthony’s car, causing Lisa’s car to flip over several times. Unfortunately both cars caught fire. Lisa began to pray, “God help me!” She cried out to God for a miracle and believed in her heart that nobody was going to die that day.

In an instant a pedestrian named Cody Clemmons (who happened to be a Christian), came to the rescue! As he was taking Lisa by the hands to attempt to pull her out of the car, Lisa said that she saw another set of white glowy hands on top of Cody’s. She believes they were angelic hands and that God sent an angel that day to save Lisa’s life!

The worst, however, wasn’t over yet. In the other car Anthony was trapped and unconscious. The flames were beginning to hit him. Another lady eyewitness on the scene cried, “God, you have to help this man!” In seconds Anthony became conscious and she said that he floated out of the burning car and was laid safely on the ground! Afterwards, Anthony said that without a doubt he knew God saved his life that day. This is a true story and is available also in written and video form by Googling “The Divine Rescue On Highway Six.”

There are many other true stories on You Tube, where people believe they have experienced amazing angelic interventions in their lives and given God the glory for such. These stories can be a great inspiration to read, and can help strengthen our faith in the One who is able to make the impossible, possible.

Thank you, heavenly Father, for your wonderful angelic creation. Thank you that you use angels to help, support and protect us frail humans in myraids of ways. In Jesus’ name.
