The story of Gideon is one many people can relate to. He was minding his business, threshing wheat in the winepress, and an angel of God appeared and said, “God is with you, O mighty warrior!” (vs. 15) He probably looked over his shoulder to see who the angel was addressing, because he considered himself a nobody—a runt of the litter—hardly a warrior who was being asked to save Israel from Midian.
We can’t predict when one of God’s “angels” might appear to us to ask us for assistance on Earth. It may be something of a minor task—like taking a casserole to someone mourning or following surgery or driving a friend to a doctor’s appointment. Perhaps we will say, “Why, me?” like Gideon, but he trusted God and became a strong warrior.
I have been published in the magazine, “Angels on Earth” a division of “Guideposts Magazine” a few times. The magazine tells true first person stories about incidents in which an angel on Earth came to someone’s rescue or how they were able to be there for someone. Check out this magazine at www.AngelsonEarth.com.
I challenge you to ask God every morning to show you an opportunity to be an angel on Earth. Don’t shy away from the chance to make a difference.
Lord, help us open our eyes to opportunities to serve you as servant s or angels on Earth. Amen.
