On the 19th Day of Christmas – There’s an army of angels from heaven watching over you.
Luke 2:13-14 “Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying, “Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”
Not only are there armies of angels protecting the heavens, but God also assigns some to watch over you and me here on earth.
These angels don’t work on their own, but instead follow God’s every command. They are working on His behalf for us, fulfilling God’s every desire.
Even when we feel completely peace-less, one of God’s greatest desires for all the earth, including you and I, is Peace. This Peace, “A” Peace, transcending all understanding, covering us in times of confusion and times of unrest.
Peace, ushered into the world through a baby….the reassurance that everything is just as He planned, just as it should be.
He has His heavenly host out guarding us from all kinds of evil, watching over us day and night. Marking our steps, reaching out their hands, covering our hurts, helping us through.
These angels are declaring that because of the birth of this little baby, baby Jesus, God’s Son, we can live in Peace. But it takes a lot of Forgiveness, Grace, and Mercy to live in this kind of Peace.
Jesus, the giver of Forgiveness, Grace and Mercy. Take your cue from Him.
Do you need this Peace?
Is there someone you need to forgive? He forgave you. Is there someone you need to give grace and mercy? He gave that to you, on the cross, when He died for your sins.
Your Heavenly Angel, one of the Heavenly Host, is encouraging you today. ‘You can do this’ they say, ‘Jesus has supplied all you need.’
Go….Seek Peace from the Lord. Watch on as the Heavenly Host sings To His Glory:
“Peace on Earth, Good Will towards Men! The Savior has Arrived.”
