Do You Believe in Angels?

Do you believe in angels? I do. Angels may seem like mythical characters like hobbits, fairies, and leprechauns. But I believe they are real.

One day, I was tidying up my son’s room and I came across a little blue book called, Angels of the Bible. In this book, it highlighted the many references to angels made throughout the Bible. We see snippets of God’s angels at work from the very beginning, Genesis 3:23-24, where angels stand guard at the Garden of Eden to the end of the book, which highlights the angels in Revelation 22:1,5 who showed John heaven.

In my Women of Faith Study Bible, angels are defined as “an order of heavenly, supernatural beings created by God for his purposes. Superior to human beings in intelligence and power, their full-time job and joy is to praise and serve God. As part of their acts of service to him, angels interact with humans, protecting, helping and delivering messages from God.”

I believe that angels surround us still today. I’ve heard many stories of people seeing angels. Television shows like, Touched by an Angel, base their story lines on these beliefs. And I myself believe that I’ve heard my own angel.

It was over five years ago when I went on a winter retreat with other women from my church. We were all bunking in a little cabin and I was sleeping on the top bunk. In my ear, my girlfriend said clearly, “Wake up”. I opened my eyes, but no one was there. It wasn’t my girlfriend. I believe that my angel was watching out for me, and cared enough to get me up before I missed the breakfast hour.

I find great comfort in the knowledge that God created beings to protect and help us.

Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? (Hebrews 1:14 NIV)

  1. I believe in angels because the Bible tells us they’re real – simple. But I have heard so many people tell of events that defy explanation, and am convinced of their interaction with us on a daily basis. It’s comforting to know of their presence, because it assures us of God’s presence.
