When we are still little children, our parents taught us to pray to the Lord so that our guardian angels will always protect us. This belief is popular among kids who are seemingly delicate and the ones who need to be guarded from risks and dangers around. Unfortunately, as people grow old, most of them have already forgotten that belief. This is probably because grown persons already feel that they are already strong and able enough to stand and live alone without any divine guardians.
In finding the truth about guardian angels, we go to what are written in the Holy Scriptures. So it is true that guardian angels exist? Does each of us really have an “angel de la guardia”? According to the Holy Bible, the angel of the Lord encamps all around a person who fears Him.
Psalm 34:7 (NKJV)
The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them.
Christ, our Lord, even said that the little children or the ones who humble their selves like the little children, have their angels whom are close to our Almighty Father.
Matthew 18:10 (NKJV)
“Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven.
These angels will protect a person from evils and diseases.
Psalm 91:9-11 (NKJV)
Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, No evil shall befall you, Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways.
As a conclusion, we can say that guardian angels did really exist and they are with us to protect us in our ways. However, we can also tell that the angels of the Lord are only encamping all around the ones who fear the Lord and stay faithful to Him. Guardian angels are true, that’s why there are so many of them, so that they can accommodate each person who are faithful to God.
Hebrews 12:22 (NKJV)
But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of angels,
Now, do you believe in your guardian angel? Who has protected you when you are still a baby who cannot walk or run and still so delicate and weak? Who guards you while you are sleeping with yourself unconscious and your body so defenseless? Isn’t it your guardian angel?
