Class 4: Your Father's Care


Previous Part

Part 8: Power of the tongue

(This is part 8 of 9 parts in this class)


You will get those who will say, "The intervention of angels does not seem very evident in the lives of very many Christians!"

My response to that would simply be; what - if anything - are those Christians giving angels to act on? What do you hear coming out of their mouths? Proverbs tells us,

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Proverbs 18:21 - KJV


Have you heard of that horrendous airline disaster in Tenerife in the 1970s when two Boeing 747s collided on the runway? There was an almost total loss of life. Do you know what was voiced by one of the pilots just before impact? It was recorded on the plane's flight recorder. He said, "God, we're all gonna die!"

What could angels have possibly done with that? That was not a directive they could act on! And to think that it's God who so often gets the blame for the lose of life in these disasters.

What a different story it might have been if the pilot had cried out (as I often have), "The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him and delivers them." Or prayed, "Father, in the Name of Jesus, command your angels to minister protection for us!"
