You’re probably familiar with the old shoulder angel and shoulder devil motif that’s depicted in movies. The two sit on your shoulders and quarrel about what path you should go down.
This depiction isn’t too far from the mark. Everyday angels work under the supervision of Michael and Barachiel of the 12 archangels to protect you from the influence of demons.
God has a plan for every one of his children. If you coming into contact with physical danger would get in the way of that plan, your guardian angel is there to swoop in and protect you from it.
It sounds farfetched by there are many accounts in the Bible that display guardian angels performing such a feat. For example, there was an angel in David chapter 6 who closed the mouth of the lions that would have killed the prophet David when he was thrown in the lion’s den.
Protection for Children
It’s believed that guardian angels are especially attached to children. The reason why is because children don’t have the knowledge that their parents have to protect and bail themselves out of danger.
They tend to go full force into everything without thinking about it which is where guardian angels come in.
Influence Our Will
Your friends invite you out on a Friday night. Something in your gut tells you not to go so you decline the invitation. The next day you hear that your friends encountered a horrible misfortune when they were out.
You would have been in danger if you’d been there but your guardian angel was there to influence your will. While angels of protection can’t directly push you in the right direction, they can stimulate your senses resulting in what is commonly called a gut feeling.
Angels Protect Every Single One of Us
Angels protect every single one of us each day. While you can’t see them at work, they exist to take care of your spiritual wellbeing and keep you out of the jaws of danger. All you have to do is reach out and ask and your protection angel will be there for you.
