Angels, God’s Thoughts Without Number!

The Forum is dedicated to each week's lesson, and may be used to post questions, comments, and constructive replies that strive to uncover the inspired meaning of the text. The Bulletin Board is for gratitude for Christian Science and the Church, as well as timely excerpts from the Bible, the works of Mrs. Eddy, and the early workers that help and encourage. We are very grateful for all posts that conform to these guidelines, but will edit or remove anything that the Practitioners feel is not in complete accord with pure Christian Science or in any way disrespectful of it.

We also ask that you keep your postings as concise as possible; make two short postings of the long posts or send the lengthy ones for publication in our Magazine or Newsletter. If you quote the Bible, please use The King James Version, as this is what Mrs. Eddy used. Thank you!

    Psalm 139:17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
    18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.

    I love the way angels, as God’s thoughts, are compared to the sand, meaning they are around us without number! Who can count sand?

    How am I using this Truth? “By giving earnest heed to these spiritual guides they tarry with us, and we entertain “angels unawares.” From Proverbs 3:6 we read; “ In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” If I acknowledge God, angels being His representatives, they guide me, stand porter at the door of thought, point out the evil thoughts I should not heed and “He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” This must result in a protective consciousness, which is at peace.

    Thank you. This is a powerful fact of God’s presence and power in our behalf. This description of the infinitude of God’s angels is really a description of the thought of one who has a highly cultivated spiritual sense. When one so naturally follows his/her spiritual sense, God’s angel thoughts flow freely and naturally into consciousness, guiding and guarding us every moment of every day. It is only when we stop paying attention, listen to other voices, or lose our gratitude for His love and direction, that the angels don’t seem so plentiful.
