If angels are real, then why don't they keep us from getting hurt? I was in an auto accident a few months ago and ended up in the hospital for three weeks. Where was my guardian angel while all that was happening?


God hasn’t promised that we’ll never get hurt or sick, or have other problems in life. Job—who knew what it was to go through hard times—wisely said that “man is born to trouble as surely as sparks fly upward” (Job 5:7).

But God has promised to be with us when hard times come—and one way He does this is through the protection of His angels. You may not see them or even be aware of their presence—but they still were looking after you during this accident and protecting you from even more harm. They also have been with you to help you in your recovery. Instead of doubting God’s care and wondering if He has abandoned you, may your heart instead be filled with thanksgiving.

Admittedly, we don’t always understand why bad things happen to us; someday, all our questions will be answered, but not yet. But by faith we know that God’s promise is true: “For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways” (Psalm 91:11). This is God’s promise to every believer.

The most important way God’s angels do this is by safeguarding our souls from Satan’s fury until death, when they usher us safely into God’s presence forever. Do you have this assurance in your heart? Do you know for sure that if you had died in this accident, you would have gone to heaven? You can, by giving your life to Christ today.

    I have never thought about it this way, that Angels circle your soul to keep it from satan until the arrival with the Lord… This is nice to know.. :c )

    I too know what it feels like to be forsaken. Jesus, Our Lord also felt it upon the cross. It’s not the expression of our feelings that turns us wrong, for Jesus said upon the cross Father why have you forsaken me. You might ask yourself did Jesus have little faith at that time? Of corse not!!! It was truth!God is also God of Truth who gives us His Spirit of Truth in whom the World will not receive. Now thats Biblical! Complete truth is something that many do not express. When we’re truthful God approves, but many men will judge or hate against that spirit, simply because it requires of others true integrity. God requires truth to the core of our heart and soul. We live by faith, yet let us hold firm in all that’s true of God amen!

    I know and agree to everything you said because I was in a rollover car accident and didn’t have my seatbelt on but I walked away with only a minor injury. The doctor said 99 percent of the time cars roll on top of the person, it kills them. So I know there was an angel with me.
