"For to His angels He has given command about you, that they guard you in all your ways." —Psalm 91:11

Our lives are so precious to God that He has created and assigned an angel specifically for each one of us. "Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life" (Catechism, 336). The Lord says: "My angel is with you, and he is the custodian of your lives" (Bar 6:6). For anyone who thinks they're in charge of their own life, it's important to know that a guardian angel has been authorized by God to take full custody of that life.

Your guardian angel is:

  1. focused constantly on Jesus (Mt 18:10; Jn 1:51). "Christ is the center of the angelic world" (Catechism, 331). Your angel's life revolves around Jesus (Jn 1:51).
  2. devoted to your personal welfare and care (Ps 91:11; Bar 6:6). God specifically declares: "I am sending an angel before you" (Ex 23:20).

Your angel is constantly beholding the face of Christ. This gives your angel a privileged position to instantly hear, receive, and carry out orders specifically related to you. Your angel is attentive to you at all times. Therefore, obey God's command to "be attentive to" your angel and "heed his voice" (Ex 23:21, 22).

Prayer: Father, thank You for loving me so personally as to create and assign an angel specifically for me. I will repent so as to cause You and my angel to rejoice (Lk 15:10).
Promise: "Unless you change and become like little children, you will not enter the kingdom of God." —Mt 18:3
