Everybody works in heaven. Jesus said once, “The Father works, and I also work.” That is, the three persons of the triune God not only exerted themselves tremendously when they designed and built the universe, but they work each day to maintain and sustain it.
The angels work too. They don’t just hover around in great winged clouds, waiting to see what’s going to happen, watching God and watching us. They are God’s spirit-agents, carrying out his gracious will on our behalf. “Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?” (Hebrews 1:14).
When you say your prayers this evening and take inventory of your day and plead for help with your finances, your health, your family, your job, and your home, take a moment and thank the Lord for the invisible army of servants that he sent which is working on your behalf even while you speak.
Someday you may be told of the guidance, whispers, and nudges by which they got you where God wanted you. Someday you may be told about the bulletproof protection they provided against disaster and against the evil one.
