Bless the Lord, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word. Psalm 103:20
I don’t think or talk about angels much, not that I don’t believe in them because I do! I just know that we are to exalt the name of the Lord, not his angels, but lately I’ve been thinking of the role they play in Gods plan.
They are in essence worker bees, the ones who go out and gather the pollen to make the honey. They have been trained to hear the Word of the Lord. So when we speak His Word in faith (which is the activator of the Word), they are dispatched to go after that Word.
I see this in the book of Jeremiah where God is training him to speak what he sees God says, “You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.” If we have an understanding of who we are and whose we are and more importantly, the power of OUR words, we would be more earnest to speak more of HIS Word over our situations then to curse, spit, sputter and worry over them.
“When you speak, angels are authorized to act based on your words. Choose words of life and not death to commission your angels in your life.” Bill Winston
If we actually believed that we are seated with Christ in heavenly places, then from that position of authority, we would be imitators of Christ, healing the sick, raising the dead and bringing hope to the hopeless. I believe God has called all of us, like Jeremiah in chapter 1:10, “See, I have this day appointed you to the oversight of the nations and of the kingdoms to root out and pull down, to destroy and to overthrow, to build and to plant.”
Seriously? How can I do that? I’m just a simple woman without qualifications or education. I have no influence over the nations or kingdoms of this earth! Oh yes I do! Let me remind you that Jeremiah was just a simple man doing his own thing when God found him. I have great influence because I have the hidden treasure of His Word in my heart. When I speak in faith, in my prayer closet and over things God burdens me for, I have more influence in the earth then any casual conversation I could have with anyone.
I think the key here is that I must believe that when I speak what God shows me to speak, my words will be effective. I do my job (speaking) and angels listen and are my worker bees in making that happen. We want a lot of things, but our purpose is what Jesus’ purpose was, “to do the will of the Father that sent me.”
Time to give the angels a job to do and begin declaring over your family, finances, health and future. Speak the Word over your neighbors, your pastors, your parents and siblings. Speak it over the nation (not your opinion but the Word), your president, senate, state and local leaders. We are carriers of the Word of God, not just to fill us up and make us sound smart. Not even to voice our opinion over what should or could be done differently, but to be useful in the Kingdom of God and speak what He’s purposed us to speak.
“Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips.” Psalm 141:3
