With all that is going on in the world, we must be aware of angels that surround us. Psalm 91:11 says, “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.” We may not be aware of the presence of angels around us, and we cannot predict how they will appear, but they are with us. John G. Paton, pioneer missionary in the New Hebrides Islands, told this thrilling story. Hostile natives surrounded his mission headquarters one night, intent on burning the Patons out and killing them. The Patons prayed all during the terror-filled night that God would deliver them. When daylight came, they were amazed to see that, unaccountably, the attackers had left. They thanked God for delivering them. A year later, the chief of the tribe was converted to Jesus Christ, and Mr. Paton, remembering what had happened, asked the chief what had kept him and his men from burning down the house and killing them. The chief replied in surprise, “Who were all those men you had with you there?” The missionary answered, “There were no men there; just my wife and I.” The chief argued that they had seen many men standing guard—hundreds of big men in shining garments with drawn swords in their hands. They seemed to circle the mission station so that the natives were afraid to attack. Only then did Mr. Paton realize that God had sent His angels to protect them. And we serve the same God today who promises us, “Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?” (Heb. 1:14)
