Kim Potter: "Employ the Angels"

Kim Potter, Dayton, Tennessee
Jun 10, 2024


Recently, I have heard a phrase over and again. It is not a wording I would normally use; therefore, it captured my attention. The phrase was, "Employ the angels." The word, employ, means: to make use of (someone or something inactive); to use (something, such as time) advantageously; to use or engage the services of; to devote to or direct toward a particular activity or person (Merriam Webster Dictionary). Because this sentence would not leave me, I took some time to study and research about angles and how they relate to us. I wanted a better understanding of what God was prompting me to do—employ the angels.

Employ the angels; give them a job to do; make use of them. This should make perfect sense to us knowing what the Word of God says about angels and the part they play in our lives. We, as born-again Christians, have a right to utilize the ministry of angels God has provided. God made these ministering angels available to us through the new covenant (see Hebrews 1:14). If we are not tapping into this powerful resource, we are missing out. Let's look at how we can effectively employ the angels.

When You Speak the Word of God, Angels Listen!

"Bless the Lord, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word. Bless the Lord, all you His hosts, you ministers of His, who do His pleasure." (Psalm 103:20–21)

The angels of God listen for His Word to be spoken out of your mouth! When they hear His Words, they go to work on your behalf. However, if you choose to speak the opposite of the Word of God, you tie their hands. They cannot help you unless you are speaking the voice of the Word of God. It is YOUR words that give the angels charge. (Photo via Unsplash)

In the book of Daniel, the angel told Daniel, "'...your words were heard; and I have come because of your words'" (Daniel 10:12). Daniel's words put the angel to work for him. You and I can do the same.

Ask for Angelic Assistance

When you ask God to employ the angels, He will do it! In Matthew 26, Jesus told the people that He could have prayed, and God would have sent twelve legions of angels to assist Him. Whatever God would do for Jesus, He will also do for you and I. Prayer releases angels to work on your behalf.

Angels Bring Deliverance

"The Angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe] and each of them He delivers." (Psalm 34:7 AMPC)

When you employ the angels of the Lord, they will rush to your defense. I love how the Amplified Bible says, each of them, He delivers.

Angels Enforce Your Covenant Rights

Angels are covenant enforcing agents. If the Bible says it belongs to us, the angels will help get it to us, if we employ them. Luke 12:32 says, "'Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.'" In 3 John 1:2, this Scripture assures us that God wants us in health and walking in soul prosperity.

Angels are here on assignment. They exist for a purpose. They are here to establish God's covenant in our lives. If it is part of the Kingdom of God, they will help get it to us—financial prosperity, healing, protection, peace of mind—whatever it is, they are there to act upon the Word of God coming out of our mouths!

Expect Angels to Work with You!

Jerry Savelle once said, "God wants us to expect accelerated activity of the angels in the last days." I believe this is the truth. I believe God wants us to employ angels and expect to see an increase of angelic activity in our lives!

Do you feel something is holding back the promises of God in your life? If so, employ God's angels. Give them an assignment. Give them something to work with!

Nothing can stop the angels of God when they are working on our behalf. Remember when Peter was in chains and in prison in Acts 12? The angel of the Lord delivered him. The bars didn't stop him. The doors and fences didn't delay him. The chains didn't make deliverance difficult for him. No, when God sent His angel to do a job, His angel completed that assignment.

Whatever is holding back your deliverance is no match for God's army of angels! Today, employ the angels of God and watch things change for the good!
