Genesis 24:7

The Lord God of heaven, who took me from my father’s house and from the land of my family, and who spoke to me and swore to me, saying, ‘To your descendants I give this land, ’ He will send His angel before you, and you shall take a wife for my son from there.

Today, our focus will be on Abraham’s persuasion about the peculiar ability of angels. He believed the angels of God will provide a wife for his son, in spite of the discouraging report from his servant. Abraham’s servant considered the request of his master a very improbable one. And the servant said to Abraham, “but what if the woman refuses to leave home and come with me? Do I then take your son back to your home country?” (Genesis 24:5 – Message Bible). In other words, the servant was saying to his master, have you considered the likelihood of the plan not working? Sir, are you aware that the challenges far out-weigh the chances of coming back with a wife for your son?

At this point, I will like you to pause for a moment. Can you relate with Abraham’s servant’s dilemma? Are the challenges in your academics, career or marriage making you to conclude that a turn-around is improbable? Have you been asking yourself, what is the likelihood of getting a job, considering the huge number of unemployed graduates? Beloved, God has equipped angels to deliver results to the heirs of salvation, even in the face of contrary facts. In a nutshell, when the report or facts are saying it cannot happen, the ministry of angels will make it happen. Abraham’s servant testimony later affirmed this truth in Genesis 24:40.

It is interesting to note the use of the word, “prosper” in the context of Genesis 24:40. The Hebrew word for “prosper” means to break out, to advance, make progress, succeed and be profitable.  Implying that the ministry of angels will make you break out every limitation and succeed against all odds. The writer of the Book of Psalms tells us how to activate the ministry of angels. Take a look at the words of the Psalmist: “Bless the Lord, you His angels!  Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word.” (Psalm 103:20)

Child of God, the angels God has assigned to minister to you are waiting for you to activate the word of God with your voice. Angels will get the job for you regardless of the state of the economy. Angels are not subject to statistics, the report or facts of any circumstance. They were created to operate supernaturally.
