Today is the feast day of the three Archangels. We hear about angels a lot in the scriptures but only three have been given names. Michael ; protects, Gabriel; announces, and Raphael; guides.
How often do you think about archangels ? How often do you think about your own guardian angel ? Jesus speaks about angels frequently. We read that; “ Angels are creatures that are purely spirit and possessing superior intellect.” God uses these messengers through salvation history as read read in both the Old and New Testament. They show us that the reality of God is much bigger than we can ever imagine.
Today in your prayer time, try to picture yourself before the throne of God with all the angels around you.
Imagine the glory of God shining like the sun. You know how hard it is to look into the brightness of the sun on the freeway when it is sunrise or sunset. Then perhaps we can comprehend the glory and power of our God. Often times we feel as if we are in control of the world around us. That’s when we need to have a heavenly perspective of something much bigger, much greater. Let your vision of God’s awesome presence give you this new perspective !
