You cannot put God in a box. I promise that if you try, He won’t stay there for long. The great wonders of God break through all the borders and boundaries we use to try to define Him.
Angels Are an Amazing Wonder of God
I think that one of the most awesome wonders of God is angels. When you read the Bible, it is sort of easy to just gloss over the fact that angels exist and sometimes interact with humans. But, there they are, right in the middle of the greatest story ever told!
And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. 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 2:8-10 ESV
The Christmas story is unbelievable in many ways and the appearance of angels adds to the miraculous wonder of the birth of our Savior! Angels not only appear to the shepherds, but also to Mary (see Luke 1) and Joseph (see Matt 1:20).
We don’t know a whole lot about what angels look like or exactly what their role is. But, they must be pretty awe-inspiring. In multiple instances in the Bible when they appear here on earth, they arouse fear in those that see them. Often, their first words are, “Do not be afraid.” So, we don’t know the details about their appearance, but we do not they are pretty amazing!
Let the Wonders of God Speak to You
And I saw another angel flying through the sky, carrying the eternal Good News to proclaim to the people who belong to this world — to every nation, tribe, language, and people. Revelation 14:6 NLT
I encourage you to spend a little time reading some of the fascinating facts about angels. It will expand your thoughts and remind you that we serve a miraculous, wondrous God that is way too BIG to fit into any box!
