Heavenly Assistance

Anneta Pinto

“The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.” (Psalm 34:7)

There are angles assigned to assist us in our assignment on Earth. Many times in scripture we see them acting as messengers, agents of protection and the executors of justice and vengeance. The angels appeared to the shepherds to announce the birth of Jesus Christ. “And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.” (Luke 2:10)

We see one angel in (2 Kings 19) defeating an entire Assyrian army which came up against Judah and attacked the city. “And that night the angel of the Lord went out and struck down 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians. And when people arose early in the morning, behold, these were all dead bodies.” (2 Kings 19:35)

There are also angels assigned to protect regions and territories and who contend with demonic forces in the heavens. During Daniel’s fast, an angel was sent to deliver a message to him. This angel was held up by a demonic Prince until Michael came to his defence. “The prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days, but Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I was left there with the kings of Persia,” (Daniel 10:13)

We see an army of angels in chariots of fire surrounding Elisha when the King sent his own army to capture him. (2 Kings 6:16-17) God wants us to be conscious of the daily presence of angels around us who can also take on human form. “Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.” (Hebrews 13:2)

No matter what is happening around you, be mindful of the fact that you are never alone. Heaven’s army stands ready to protect and defend you and there are angels assigned to daily assist you.

I am a trained Social Worker who currently provides professional leadership on a programme to support Social Work students and Newly Qualified Social Workers entering the Social Work Profession.

Born and raised in Jamaica in a Christian family where my father is an ordained Pastor and Deacon who has served for over 50 years in the ministry. My father is also a trained musician and our family can be described as a musical family. I grew up in a small farming community in St. Peter’s, St. Andrew and my parents also have a small farm.

I credit my gift of writing to my father who I watched and listened to over the years as he wrote sermons, poems and other recitals in his capacity in ministry. English has always been an easy subject for me and over the years I have developed an increased interest in writing.

I am a Trainer, I sing and have a passion for worship, the spoken word and the free flow of the prophetic anointing. I am married to my best friend Andrew Christopher Young who is an advanced Musician and whose music you can find on YouTube and Facebook. I am a trained Coach and Mentor and I love experimenting with food so I love cooking. I enjoy trying cultural dishes from across the world and I view food as an entry into cultures and languages.
