An angel from heaven appeared to [Jesus] and strengthened him. (Luke 22:43)
It’s encouraging to know that, in his moment of great trial, Jesus was ministered to by an angel. God didn’t leave Jesus alone to fend for himself, but an angel appeared and gave him strength. Isn’t that encouraging?
I’m certainly not an expert on angels, nor do I think that the Bible gives us a lot of information about them and their ministry, but it’s amazing to know that one of them went to Jesus’ side to be a blessing to him in a time of need. To the Gospel writers and even to the early church, the presence of angels was an assumption that they held.
I believe that God sends angels to the aid of us just as He sent them to the aid of Jesus. I believe there are times when they protect and watch over us and even give us strength. Be encouraged to know that angels are present, and they are watching over us.
Father, thank You for the presence of angels. Thank You that You send them to minister to us and to watch over us in our times of need.
