The Wings of an Angel

The Wing of an Angel

He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge.
Psalm 91:4

Sharnel Smith was in her truck in the Nigerian city of Billiri when a boy approached with a snake around his neck. He offered to let her hold it and she agreed, taking it by its neck in her right hand. It tried to writhe toward her and hiss, but she later said, “I literally sensed the wing of an angel between that snake and me.” As she returned the snake to the boy, local friends surrounded her, faces aghast. “Ma, do you know what you just did? That is the witch doctor’s son and you just held a spitting cobra in your hands and it did not bite you.”

Sharnel believed God sent an angel to spread its protecting wing between her and the cobra. Otherwise, as she later said, “I would have traveled home in a pine box.”1

As we go about the Lord’s work, the serpent is seeking to harm us; but we have God and His protecting angels to watch over us. They protect us from more dangers than we realize.

One day I read something that impressed me so profoundly that I have worried little since then. It said: “A man of God in the will of God is immortal until his work on earth is done.”
David Jeremiah, in The Handwriting on the Wall
