Did you know that angels actually listen to and act on the words we speak? If you want evidence that the angels of God are listening to your words, look at Luke 12:8-9: "Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God: But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God."

Your words are being heard by an audience of angels. How big is this audience? Revelation 5:11 tells us that the number of angels who surround the throne of God is ten thousand times ten thousand and thousands of thousands. One scholar has calculated just this group of angels to amount to a trillion.

That is about ten thousand angels for every man, woman, and child alive on the earth today! And we do not know that the number mentioned is all of the angels in existence.

There is no shortage of angel power to put to work on your behalf. If as much as half of the earth's population became born again, there still would be 20,000 angels at each believer's disposal to carry out and enforce their covenant with God.

Imagine 20,000 servants "on the mark, set, and ready to go" on your behalf!

As we have seen, a mighty host of angels is waiting to hear the words of God come out of a believer's mouth. That fact is confirmed by Psalm 103:20: "Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word."

To hearken means "to listen for, to pay close attention to, and to hear and do." Angels are listening for the voice of God's Word. Give His Word voice, and they will respond.

When you have bills that need to be paid, speak the Word. Speak out things like this:
According to Philippians 4:19, my God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. I am a tither, and according to Malachi 3:10, God is opening the windows of Heaven and pouring out a blessing for me that I will not have room to contain. Now, according to Hebrews 1:14, I command the angels of God to go forth and minister for me, an heir of salvation.
When angels hear God's Word coming out of your mouth, they go into action, moving and influencing in the spirit realm to make God's covenant words come to pass for you.

What happens, on the other hand, when you speak out the same negative "garbage" of doubt and unbelief that the world speaks? "Bills, bills, bills. We are never going to get caught up? They will probably turn off our lights before we see any money around here."

You have just taken your angels out of the picture. Those words run directly counter to what God's covenant says about your situation. In the presence of those words of doubt and unbelief, they have no choice but to bow their heads, fold their hands, and wait.

They are waiting for you to speak God's Word and do it consistently enough for them to get some provision to you.

Your Wall of Safety
These principles are just as true when it comes to safety and security. Speaking what God's Word says about His protection of His children activates your angels to put up a wall around you that all of the forces in hell cannot break through.

Look at Psalm 34:7: "The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them."

If you have battled fear, this is a great verse to speak about yourself on a daily basis. You can speak out things like this, "Because I reverence the Lord, His angels camp around me and deliver me from all harm."

That is the kind of talk that will put angels in a position to do that very thing. No mugger, no rapist, no drive-by shooter on earth can penetrate that angelic shield of protection. And when you do find yourself in a sticky situation, this verse promises you deliverance.

This is the kind of angelic deliverance that the Apostle Peter experienced in Acts 12. He was in prison, scheduled for execution for preaching the Gospel. However, there were people praying for him, and he understood his covenant. So what happened?
And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me. (Acts 12:7-8)
How confident was Peter in his covenant of protection? He was scheduled to die in the morning, and yet the angel had to wake him up to break him out of prison! That is peace. That is confidence. That is the kind of freedom from fear that comes from knowing God's covenant of protection is being enforced by mighty angels.

Get Rid of That Fear
There is no place for fear in the life of a believer. The spirit of fear will rob you of everything that is sweet and good about the Christian life on this earth. It will steal your peace and torment your soul.

But that is not the worst thing about fear.

The most devastating aspect of fear is that, as the reciprocal of faith, it opens the door to the very things you fear most. It is time to get rid of fear! All of the steps you need to take to come out of fear and get into faith are actions:
  • Start changing the way you talk.
  • Stop speaking out words of fear and doubt.
  • Begin to speak God's promises that apply to your situation.
  • Get a revelation of the ministry of God's protecting angels.
  • See—with your mind's eye—mighty warrior angels surrounding you on every side.
Do these things, and the spirit of fear will be uprooted from your life. Then, look out! A lot of blessings, power, and peace are headed your way.
