I can’t tell you that it was an angel for sure. I’ll find out in heaven. When my mother was a little girl, she vividly remembers running down the sidewalk, planting her foot on the curb, and launching herself into the street just as a car suddenly came whipping around the corner. She remembers feeling like she was picked up and placed back on the curb. But when she looked around, there was no one there. Was it an angel? Maybe.
Do you have an angel story? A story where the only logical conclusion is that God sent an angel to help you? God says through his psalmist, “He will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways” (Psalm 91:11). This means that whether we know of a story or not, we all have angel stories! God promises that it’s true! I’m convinced that one of the joys of heaven will be to hear all the ways that God protected us with these powerful creatures without us even knowing.
Just think of that today. Perhaps an angel will hold back a tree limb from falling when you’re under it or cause a deer to trip so that it passes just behind your car instead of in front of it. We may never know those things in this life, but this I know: God will continue to provide angel stories in your life. You have his Word on it!
