Light fades angels appear

Recently, company from Chicago remarked about the plaque hanging in her condominium bedroom. It read:

Light fades, stars appear,
Evening angels gather near.

In Revelation 21:23 we read:
23 The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light , and the Lamb is its lamp.

In scripture we read that Jesus is the Lamb of God. It is hard for our minds to fathom this concept of no sun or moon, yet, we know that only Christ brings true light into our lives. And we know that God created the stars and calls each one by name.

Psalms 147:4 He determines the number of stars and calls them each by name.NIV Another concept hard to grasp--especially if you’ve ever gazed at the black velvet sky plastered with multitudes of stars .

Are we (made in His likeness) not much more important to Him than the stars?

We also know that God sends angels to protect us.

Psalms 91:9-16

9 If you make the Most High your dwelling —
even the LORD, who is my refuge —
10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

We are special to God. He loves us more than our finite minds can comprehend. Be encouraged today. Know that you are loved and that God wants to be the light of your life.
