When the devil uses people, demons or situations in his attempt to destroy us, God intervenes to save us. Sometimes, the gravity of the situation requires supernatural intervention by the angels of the Lord. In Hebrews 1:14, we read that angels are "all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation." Sad to say, there are believers who believe they have the power to tell the angels to do something for them. They are on dangerous ground, because such a practice, which has no biblical basis, opens the door for demons to lure them into their territory and harm them. The Bible teaches us that only the Lord commands His angels and they fulfill all His commandments, for our own good and for the kingdom of God.
Herod, the king of Israel, had arrested Peter for his faith in Jesus Christ, with the desire to bring him before the people after Passover. But God sent an angel to Peter to deliver him from prison, where he was bound in chains and guarded by 16 soldiers.
It was the prayers of the church that triggered the intervention of the Lord. The Holy Spirit had led those in the church to intercede in prayer for their brother. Can you imagine how great their joy was and how much their faith was strengthened when they heard Peter's testimony about how the Lord had answered their prayers? If for us is such great encouragement to read what God has done through His angel, how much more could it have been for them, who were the protagonists of this scene?
There are many instances in the Bible, both in the Old and New Testament about the angels sent by God to help His children, and to this day, there are many testimonies about the miracles done by the angels of the Lord. Let us not forget that God never leaves us alone when things go wrong. He always has solutions for every problem we go through and when needed, He sends His angels to fight for us. We are not to pray to angels. We are to pray to the Lord and He decides how to help us and when the situation requires it, He will command the angels to do what we cannot do, until He takes us to be with Him, where Jesus went to prepare a place for us!
