“Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.” (Exodus 23: 20)
Behold! Open your eyes and see! There is divine guidance, a ready and steady angel, leading you in all that you do. God has given us this spiritual intuition, inspiration, and protection as we go forth expressing fresh aspects of His Life.
Each of us has a holy purpose, God’s moment-by-moment demand, to which our lives bear witness. God has prepared us for everything we have to do to accomplish this mission, and He always prepares our place, our success, ahead of our arrival. He has assured that we get where He would have us go, and that we have all that we need on the journey.
God has also lovingly given us His angel, His divine messenger, to guarantee that we don’t miss our holy land, our place of contentment, freedom, and peace. This angel, this divine guidance, is not obscure nor does it require us to have special visionary powers.
Our angel is the voice within us that knows us and loves us. It is that intelligent goodness that resides in our hearts and instructs us wisely and well. You always have your angels. God has given you the way home, written clearly within your own eager and trusting soul. Behold, follow, and rejoice!
