Time and time again in our lives, Marge and I have learned “to not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (Matthew 6:31-34).
I’m sure there have been many times when angels have helped me through a difficult or impossible situation, and I didn’t even realize it, but there have been several times when I was absolutely sure of angelic intervention. One such time happened many years ago when my wife, Marge, and I were on our way back home to Beaver Bay on the North Shore.
Throughout scripture and in our own lives, God speaks to us in various ways. Sometimes, when He speaks, it is in a “still small voice,” as He spoke to Elijah in 1Kings 19:12. Most of us may never hear His audible voice but we know when God is speaking to us. As we pray and ask the Lord to guide us to do the right thing, carrying out His Divine Will, we may feel an urgency to do something, even if it’s against all odds. We may not know exactly what we’re doing or why we’re doing it, but we know the Lord desires it.
