Bill Winston — Faith in Your Angels
Well welcome to the Believer's Walk of Faith. This is Bill Winston where we walk by faith and not by sight. Let me share something with you that might encourage you. God has a plan for your life that is so big, you're gonna need help, mainly angels, to help you finish it. I'm telling you. It is just that big. Why? Because He's a big God, and He has made us to do big things. Let's go right into it. It's called Living on Top of the World.
What is a characteristic of a person who fears God? Now that fear, it doesn't mean tremble. It means reverent respect of His Word. What is a characteristic is that the angel of the Lord is going to be encamped around about you. If you have a reverent respect for God's Word, angels are around you right now. They don't only encamp around about you, but what do they do if you get in trouble? Is that a maybe or is that God's Word? He has given you His Word because the angel, if one won't do the job, God's promise is out, and He said in Hebrews 12, He's got innumerable number of angels. That means there's no figure that you can come up with that can designate how many angels he's got.
So if one won't do your job, how about two? If two can't get the job done, how about three? Daniel, in Daniel chapter 10, had fasted for three weeks on a Daniel fast, he was waiting on a Word from God. The angel finally showed up, and the angel came and told him, I would have been here for the first day you started and petitioned God, I was sent. He said, but I had a war in the heavenlies. I was warring against Satan and his army. Watch this, and I couldn't break through, so I called for backup. I called for Michael, and Michael, do you hear what I'm saying? Michael came, who is the chief warring angel, so if God had to call Michael to get your money to you on time, He will call for Michael, and you will have your deliverance.
Look at Psalm 91. He said, "There shall no evil befall you". This is verse 10 now. Verse 10. "Neither shall any plague come nigh your dwelling". Watch this. "For he shall give his" who? "Angels," what? "Charge over you. To keep you in all your ways. And they shall bear you up in their hands even if you dash your foot against a stone". The New Living Bible, and just see what it says starting at verse 10. "No evil will conquer you. No plague will come nigh your home for he will order His angels to protect you wherever you go". Keep going. "And they will hold you up in their hand so that you won't even hurt your foot against a stone". You won't even stump your toe. Are y'all hearing what I'm saying?
Now I'm talking about the blessing and what you have been equipped with. If you look now, let's go over to Matthew's gospel chapter 28 and verse 20. He said, "Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you, and lo I am with you always, even to the end of the world". He's not going to leave you. And look at Psalm 103 and verse 20. Psalm 103. This is just one area I'm talking about now. "Bless the Lord ye his angels that excel," in what? "Strength that do his," What? "Commandments hearkening into," the what? "Voice of his Word".
Now let me take this microphone, and let me put this microphone by the Word of God, and let's see what it says. You ready? Well I can't hear anything, can you? So who's going to give voice to the Word? I am. I'm going to give voice to the Word, so I'm going to take his Word and give voice to it, and over in 2 Kings chapter 19, the king of Assyria had attacked Israel, and as they had attacked Israel, now the king didn't know exactly what to do, so he sent to the prophet, and said, hey, send me a word. Send me a word from God. So the prophet got a Word from God, sent it back to him, and he got the word and went up into the temple and spread the word before the Lord. Why? Cause the Lord said, himself, put me in remembrance of what I said.
Now don't think the Lord forgot it. He said that's the rules to get the angels to move for it. You put me in remembrance, and once he went and prayed, the prophet sent a word back and said, "The Lord has heard you". That's all you want is that the Lord hear you because He can't deny himself, so He hears you, and when He heard you, all of a sudden, the Hezekiah and his people went to bed. Why'd they go bed? Because faith takes corresponding action. If you believe and stay up all night worrying, you never believed. I got to say and forget it. Glory to God. I said, I got to speak it and then forget it. Say it's already done. I got to start praising God like it's already done.
And look at verse 35, He said, "And it came to pass that night, that the angel of the Lord went out, and smote in the camp of the Assyrians, 104 score and 5 thousand". How many is that somebody? 185, but notice what he said, "The angel". It didn't even say angels. It said one of them went out and watch this. That's done. So don't think the angel had to fight all night. I see y'all. Y'all that's carnal man. The angel just (fire sound) that's it. That's it. Now understand, this means now, that if I'm more aware of God's promise than my problem, then I can put faith in God that the angels that He promised in His covenant are right with me right now.
Now wait a minute. That means if I'm in a place that I didn't know or out in a camp or something, I'm not thinking a bear's going to come. I'm not thinking a hand is going to come through a wall. I'm not thinking. Come on. Somebody going to break in the door because if they do break in, they're going to break in on that big guy standing by the door. I have seen an angel. I saw him years ago when a guy was preaching, and I saw him, and I saw him, and he stood so tall, he was taller than this drywall that was up here, and I said, "Whoa". I mean, it just shocked me for a minute. I had never seen anything like that. I wasn't look for it. It was just boom, just happened. I said, "Wow". And that put a mark in my mind of how big these guys really are.
See, they are walking around with you. As you walk, they're walking, because once you get born again, you get a guardian angel. That angel is with you forever. And if you don't say what God said, that angel would fold him arms because he can only move by faith based on what God says. The last angel that tried to move without that, got kicked out of heaven. And them angels know it. They can't move without God's Word. So I don't care who says what about your life, you're answer is "My money will be here tomorrow by...". Your answer gives the angels something to do.
Folks, they can not only stop a bullet, they can stop the gun from firing. Everybody bullet, they can stop the gun from firing. Everybody used them in the Old Testament. Even in the New Testament. Angels showed up and got Peter out of jail. Come on, you can send angels to get that boy out of that drug house. I'm tell you that. All you got to do is know what your rights are. Say amen to that.
Daniel chapter 6 and verse 20, and this is when they threw Daniel in the lion's den. You remember. And look what it says, "And when he came to the den". This is the king now. "He cried with a lamentable voice. He said, 'Daniel', and the king spake and said to Daniel, 'Oh Daniel, servant of the living God, is the God whom you serve continually able to deliver you from the lions?'" Watch this. "Then said Daniel to the king," what? Notice what he didn't do to the king. He didn't curse him, and he did badmouth him. Come on now. See, that carnal person want to... But look at Matthew chapter 5 verse 43. Look what he says. "You have heard that it has been said that thou shall love they neighbor and hate your enemy, but I say unto you," what? "Love your enemies". Keep going. Bless them that what? Curse you.
So as he threw him in the pit, the last thing he wanted to do is come out cursing him. He wanted to come out blessing him. Why? Because by blessing him, he was going to bless himself. This is different folks. This is different. That's why He said in Matthew chapter 5. He said over there in verse 10, "Blessed are they, which are persecuted for righteousness sake for theirs in the," what? "Kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye when men shall revile you and persecute you and say all manner of evil against you falsely for my name's sake". What are you going to do? You going to give God a shout. See, if you know nothing can stop your progress, nothing can stop your increase, nothing can stop you from being healed, nothing ... See the last thing you want is for the devil to give you something.
Look at Luke chapter 4 and verse 5. Are y'all with me here? "And the devil taken him up to a high mountain, showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time". He's showing this to Jesus now. He's tempting him. "And the devil said to him, 'All this power will I give you in the glory of them, for it's been delivered unto me and to whomsoever I will,'" what? Give it. Give it. Give it. Give it. He's controlling the money system. He's controlling the world system. He's controlling many elections.
He's controlling, but see, you don't want the devil to give you nothing. You got the faith that takes. I said you got the faith that takes. You can take your healing back. You can take your money, your raise, your promotion. You can take your marriage back. You can take your kids back. You can take everything back because faith, he cannot stop. Don't let him give you a thing.
What did Abraham say over in Genesis chapter 14? He said, "No, don't you give me anything". He said, "I won't even take a shoelace from you unless you start talking about, I made Abraham rich". See, God doesn't even want you to be in a position, where you've got to tell a man thank you. Do you hear what I'm saying? God's going to put some favor on you that you're not going to have to tell a man nothing. Now, I know some people in here, I don't know about all of that. That's because you're in unbelief. That's because you're carnal, that's because you're ignorant. But I'm going to help you. I'm going to help you even though you can't help yourself right now. I'm going to help you to think right, to walk right, to speak right, and to live the abundant life.
So here's what I'm telling you. God has a plan for your life that is so big, that you're going to need a group of angels to help you get to the finish line, and I'm saying your days of being broke. I'm saying this. I'm saying this. Your days of being broke are over. I think I got one more thing for you. Say amen here. So what am I saying now? For you, as far as you are concerned. You are no longer natural. You are supernatural. God has given you words to serve you. Say amen.
And when you speak your words, your words will go out and accomplish what you have told them to do. You are born again, created to rule, you're anointed and blessed to speak things and designed to decree things and declare things, and the will of God in the earth will be declared by you. You are ordained to operate in the supernatural living the God class, and you were born again for this day, this purpose, this time, at this place, and made to produce supernatural manifestations of heaven on earth.
Greatness is in you. It is in your DNA, that you are a citizen of the Kingdom of God. You are created to reign and not be reigned on, and you also are in this earth for God to bring Heaven to earth. You are chosen by God, Himself. You have been His workmanship. Oh, there is no finer quality in you that is in anyone in this earth, for God, Himself, has put you together, and you are made to bring peace to every place you go and manifest His kingdom on earth. You are not defeated. You are victorious. God has not rejected you. People may reject you, but God says you are accepted in the beloved. You are His precious person. You are His workmanship. And the devil is totally defeated in your life.
Now say it and see it. And every part of your life, right now your spirit, soul, body, financially, and socially, are now made whole. You are going to be promoted. You are going to be famous and distinguished for God, Himself, has His hand on you. Jesus is your King and your Lord. He is also your elder brother, and He is seated, making intercessions for you. For He has sent His angels to encamp around about you and keep you in all of your way, so the devil is under your feet, and all you got to let Him know is you are head over this earth in Jesus' name. Now give God praise!
No more doubt. No more carnality. For God's blessing is on you now, and it's moving by faith, and the kingdom of God has angels as resources, and they're coming to you right now. They're asking you, "What is it that you want me to do"? "Give me a bidding," saith the Lord. "Give me a bidding. Give me something to do," says the angel. Give them the Word and let that word bring this prosperity, the riches, the honor, the glory, and the blessing into your life. This is your season. This is your time. It will not be delayed any longer. This is your time and season to shout because God has brought you out. May the Lord add a blessing to the reading of the Word. Sit May the Lord add a blessing to the reading of the Word. We've been living much beneath our standard. God is bringing back the standard in the church. Supernatural is where home is for us. I like what R.W. Schambach used to say. You don't have any problems. All you need is faith in God.
