Our Daily Elder Devotional
We claim no originality for these devotions. One of our elders searches various sources and finds a daily devotion. Consider this a gift from Clinton Avenue Reformed Church: www.clintonave.org.
Today’s devotional comes from “Hope for Each Day” by Billy Graham.
Nearer Than You Think
Psalm 91:11New King James Version (NKJV)
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
Occasionally I see reports of happenings that cannot be humanly explained of visitors unexpectedly appearing to assist in times of crisis, or warning of impending danger. These can only be explained as the intervention of God’s angels.
In the Bible, angels occasionally assumed visible form — at the birth of Jesus, for example. But usually angels go about their business is unseen and unrecognized. They never draw attention to themselves, but point us instead to Christ.
C.S. Lewis once said that we tend to make one of two errors about Satan: we either make too little of him, or we make too much.
The same could be said of angels. Don’t make too little of them. God has given “His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways” (Psalm 91:11). On the other hand, don’t worship them or become preoccupied with them. Instead, thank God for His angels and rejoice in their unseen watchfulness over you.
