I’m working through the book, “Seeking God’s Face” for my personal devotions.   I’ve only been using it for 3 weeks but so far, I highly recommend it.

One of the things that it said today was to take some time, dwell on the bible passages you’ve just read and see if there is one thought, one phrase that “jumps out at you.”

Psalm 46:3 in the MSG uses a phrase that jumps out at me –  “God of the Angel Armies.”

When I hear, “God of the Angel Armies” there are a couple of things that come to mind……

  • A soldier, in battle, being totally outnumbered until the angel armies come and fight back the enemy and rescue him.
  • A God who speaks love, who is love, but is also very at ease with using His Angel Armies to protect those He  loves.

It’s a dangerous, difficult world, but we have the God of the Angel Armies on our side.

And He’s not afraid to use them.
