5 I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, a certain man clothed in linen, whose waist was girded with gold of Uphaz! 6 His body was like beryl, his face like the appearance of lightning, his eyes like torches of fire, his arms and feet like burnished bronze in color, and the sound of his words like the voice of a multitude.
Genesis 3:24 (NKJV)
24 So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.
This was not a monster at all. This was an angel of protection watching over her as she slept. I explained to her what she was seeing and peace filled her sleep. She no longer was frightened by the appearance of this angel. Many times in the bible angels appear and say “fear not”.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people
Angel’s have been sent to protect us, minister to us, and strengthen us. Their appearance is so great that many in the bible have fallen to their face with reverence, but it is clear that we are not to worship angels. It is to our benefit that we realize that they do exist. There is a supernatural realm that our prayers travel and our angels war for them to get answered.
Daniel 10:12-14 (NKJV)
12 Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.”
This means there is also a demonic force that is working against us. This realm will cause fear and torment in our sleep and even in specific areas of our lives. Our children are greatly affected by this because of their childlike faith. They simply believe. This is a good thing, but we must teach them that they have power over the enemy. We can’t disregard the monsters they tell us about. If something is tormenting them at night, if we pay attention to what they say, we will be given strategy of how to pray and what to pray against. The enemy wants to place fear in them at an early age so that they won’t have the courage to fulfill their purpose. Each one of them has a different destiny and God has help for them. Their angels will encamp around them. We must fill them with the word of God and teach them how to pray. We have to take the “weirdness” out of the supernatural and make it the norm. This will empower our children to be world changers and walk in miracles, signs, and wonders. The world is crying for a solution. We are the answer!
18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. 19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope;
People are eagerly waiting for God’s glory to be revealed. They have a void that only Jesus can fill. What the world calls normal, has perverted the souls of man. We must set a standard in our children that the supernatural is normal. That it is normal for prayers to get answered. It is normal to lay hands on the sick and they recover. It is normal to experience miracles. We can make the Supernatural the new normal. Instead of our children fearing the enemy, the enemy will fear them!
Father, we thank You for Your supernatural power that You have given us by the Holy Spirit. We thank You for the angels that You have assigned to our family for our benefit. Show us how to put them in action on our behalf. Forgive us for not utilizing the power that You have given us to impact the world. Give us a deeper understanding of the supernatural and how to make it normal in our daily lives. Help us believe Your word in its fullness. Let us encounter You in new ways and experience You on new levels. Help us to see how You work on our behalf even when we can’t see with our natural eyes. We want our family to know Your miracle, signs, and wonders. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
