As I was growing up as a young boy my grandmother had this picture in the front room of her house. As I look back to those days I remember two things about this room. First there was this picture and then there was the heater and all the jackets that were piled upon the chairs and the sofa. However, it was this picture and the meaning behind it that guided my belief that I had a guardian angel watching over me.
However, one day the truth was made known to me and that truth was my guardian angel was not watching over me. My faith in the power of the Lord grew greatly that day. I was made of the truth of Matthew 18:10. Christ was answering the disciples’ question on “who then is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”. Matthew 18:10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven continually behold the face of My Father who is in heaven.” So my angel is watching the Father and not me? Yes God is watching over me. And when I need help he sends in my angel. God was so great that He watches over His entire creation.
So during this Thanksgiving take a few moments to thank and praise the Lord who watches over you. Yes we have angels taking care of us, but it is God who directs them in our lives. And as he ends this lesson to his disciples on who is the greatest in heaven he reminds them that where two are three have gathered together in My name, there I am in their midst. So as you enjoy this time of Thanksgiving do it in His name and enjoy His presence this holiday.
