We excel at putting people in their place.
We slot them in and compare them by appearance, profession, or the size of their bank account.
Powerful people get the best parking spaces, largest offices, and the most respect.
We’re acutely aware of who slots in just above and below us in humanity’s hierarchy. Governor, bank president, or custodian.
We become what people think of us.
How important does that make Michael the Archangel, higher than man and just under the King of Kings?
Let’s look at 5 Insights from Archangel Michael:
Insight No. 1:
We have a defender. We will face trouble, yet God sends his messengers, the great princes of the air, to provide us aid.
Daniel 12:1 says:
“At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book.”
Insight No. 2:
We must default to our Lord when temptation comes against us. We have no power in ourselves, only in the Son of God.
Jude 1:9 says:
“But when the archangel Michael, contending with the devil, was disputing about the body of Moses, he did not presume to pronounce a blasphemous judgment, but said, ‘The Lord rebuke you.’ ”
Insight No. 3:
Our answer to prayer comes through persistence. The very angels from heaven fight for us in the battle between good and evil.
Daniel 10:13-14 says:
“The prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days, but Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I was left there with the kings of Persia, and came to make you understand what is to happen to your people in the latter days. For the vision is for days yet to come.”
Insight No. 4:
The army of Christ is already victorious. Michael and his angels are the predetermined champions of the spiritual realm.
Revelation 12:7-8 says:
“Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.”
Insight No. 5:
We are not left alone in our battle against the world. We are never abandoned, no matter how bad our situation.
Daniel 10:21 says:
“But I will tell you what is inscribed in the book of truth: there is none who contends by my side against these except Michael, your prince.”
We do not battle as men and women. We are surrounded by spiritual giants that slot in around us, and in their presence, we are undefeated in our pursuit of God’s truth and holiness.
Our grasp on the cross is made stronger by the angels that surround us. They are unequaled in their strength and power.
