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.
