Seeds Of Hope For Tuesday, October 26, 2021
WANT TO BECOME AN ANGEL?
Marie asked her mother what she could do to become an angel. After a moment’s thought, she looked caringly at her and said, “Be good, Marie – very good, and if you are, someday, when you go to heaven, you will become an angel.”
But no one goes to heaven because of the life they have lived or their good deeds. Entrance to heaven – eternal life with our Heavenly Father – is through Jesus Christ, His Son, our Savior.
Angels, or heavenly hosts as David calls them, have an interesting status. They are older than man, but they are not eternal. They are mighty, supernatural beings who surround the throne of God and follow His commands and do whatever He asks them as His “special messengers.” They are part of God’s angelic army and His celestial court. While there has never been an increase in the number of angels, the Bible says that their company – or number – is “countless.”
David says something very interesting about them, “Praise the Lord, all His heavenly hosts, you His servants who do His will.” As His servants they have special roles and relationships with Him. But more importantly, they have special responsibilities. They are His messengers, bring comfort in times of need and distress, give military assistance, provide protection, guard and give guidance to those who are His own.
Finally, an angel will come from heaven, seize Satan, bind him in chains and cast him into “the pit.” What a wonderful day that will be!
Prayer: Help us, Father, to live in complete obedience to You as do Your angels. May we always follow Your will. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture For Today: Praise the Lord, all His heavenly hosts, you His servants who do His will. Psalm 103:21

Guido Prison Ministry
Won’t you pray about your involvement with our ministry to prisoners? We don’t send out bulk mailings to prisons for random distribution, but we add each prisoner to our mailing list as they request it. At present, we send out 2,300 packages to individuals in prison each month. Each day we receive letters from many, telling us how much our devotionals mean to them, and how they share them with their fellow inmates. We can send one prisoner material each month at the cost of $20 a year. That’s not a lot. Join us in this ministry to those that need it so much… the prisoners. Contact us at 912-685-2222 to become a partner in reaching out to those the Bible tells us not to forget. Go here to a special blog that collects prisoner testimonial letters that show the effects of this ministry and highlight the need!
