The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them. – Psalm 34:7

If you look closely in this photo, you will see several orbs of light. They are strange manifestations. These sort of orbs do not appear in other pictures taken by the same camera. They are unique to the time and place of this photo.
Some might simply write this phenomenon off as caused by a dirty lens. Or others might just say I have the lighting off. Nothing significant here to see.
I like to think these orbs represent–or are–the angels God dispatched to protect me while I was extremely vulnerable. They were present during a time while I discovered my former spouse was cheating as well as before my career really was launched. If Satan could take me out, this was the time to do so–i.e. before my ministry really began in earnest. God would have none of that.
He listened to my and countless others’ prayers. God sent His angels to protect me.
Dealing with adultery is a spiritual battle.
Just as there are demons, I believe angels exist as well. I have spent a great deal of time writing about their darker counterparts, but today I want to remind us that God sends His angels as well. As the verse above explains, God uses angels for deliverance and protection. Jesus even teaches us that little children have angels (see Mt 18:10).
It makes sense that not only demons but also God’s heavenly angels are involved in the spiritual battle. This begs the question: I wonder if any of my readers had encounters with angels during their ordeals. How about you?
Can you testify to angelic protection as I am convinced I can?
