We have the free will to tell angels what to do for us in behalf of the Word, but how many of us do it? We must speak to these angelic beings ... that's what Jesus said: "Say it and then do it." Make sure that you say it exactly the way that God tells you to say it.
Hebrews 1:14 ... Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
Matthew 18:10b ... In Heaven their angels do always behold the face of My Father Which is in Heaven.
Behold, the angel of the Lord came upon Peter and a light shined in the prison. He smote Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, "Arise up quickly." And Peter's chains fell off from his hands. The angel said to him "Gird yourself and bind on your sandals." And so he did. Then the angel said to him, "Cast your garment about yourself, and follow me."
Peter went out and followed the angel, and didn't know that it was true which was done by the angel ... he thought that he was seeing a vision. When they were past the first and the second ward, they came to the iron gate that led into the city.
The gate opened to them of its own accord and they went out and passed on through one street ... immediately the angel departed from him. When Peter came to himself, he said, "Now I know for sure that the Lord has sent His angel and has delivered me out."
This came about because of Peter's friends in prayer and their asking for help to get Peter out of prison. God sent this angel. We've had similar things happen in our life because we've commanded our angels ... lost things have been found is one of the main ones where we've gotten help from our angels.
