• “But the misfortune is that people wish to direct God instead of resigning themselves to be directed by Him. We wish to take the lead, and to follow in a way of their own selection instead of submissively and passively following where God sees fit to conduct them. And hence it is, that many souls who are called to the enjoyment of God himself and mot merely to the gifts of God, spend all their lives in pursuing and in feeding on little consolations.” – Madame Guyon

The Same Angels by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/04/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: In the Gospel of Mark, we read about Jesus fasting for forty days in the desert. During that time He faced intense temptation from Satan. After the battle, we read that angels attended to Him. They served Him when He was physically and emotionally spent.

Now here’s something amazing: According to Hebrews 1, angels are available to attend to us, just as they helped Jesus. Hebrews says, “Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?”

In that verse the Greek word used to describe the help angels give us is the same word that’s used in Mark to describe the help they gave Jesus. Maybe you’re in a time of intense temptation or some other battle. God has unseen servants available to strengthen you—just as He helped His Son. All you need to do is ask for His help.
