Lord have mercy.....Lord have mercy. Why do we as humans look for an easy way out? Whether it be as Angels, or another answer. Why do we want an easy way out. Bad things happen...does that mean we shouldn't believe in a higher power ? No it doesn't !
Thats a good question, and although I'm not religious, am an atheist and don't believe in anything supernatural, perhaps its because it makes you feel not alone. However, the thought of thinking an angel stands beside you only to be suddenly disillusioned realizing that you don't feel alone for an imaginary thing is truly sad. I'd rather accept that I am alone and not have to deal with the emotional toll of wavering faith.
If you are a child of God, meaning you talk to him, believe in him etc. He will never leave you, He will never forsake you. Call upon him for protection and in your true time of need, you will receive it. He expects you to be tough as well.
We most likely dont have angels right beside us. The whole guardian angel thing is a childrens story. God doesnt need help guarding us, first of all. Second He will very rarely protect us from the consequences of our own stupid choices. We make choices freely and we must take the consequences as they come. You dont just get to do whatever you want in life and get away without consequences. Occasionally we get caught up in the consequences of someone elses stupid bad choice and that sucks but thats part of free will and the sin warped consequences that iften come with it. Other people get caught in the consequences of our bad choices too. What goes around comes around. God may occadionally send an angel to help out a particular person but real angels are mostly messengers for God not guardians. We dont have some angel stuck to us specifically. Its probably more like whichever angel is next on the roster when God decides to send one to do guard detail.
If that were true, then no one would get sick ,or die in car accidents or anything bad for that matter. Sometimes we are saved from the bad things,sometimes not. God can easily send angels to protect us, but not always. We still live in a fallen world of sin. As believes that is not the reason we believe is to be spared from life's horrors. We do know there will come a time when there won't be anything to harm us again, for eternity.
That bad things happen is not proof against angels. It's proof that this isn't a perfect world, and we aren't perfect people. But then, we don't need proof of that. People are comforted that we have a cloud of witnesses (presumed to be angels or perhaps departed saints) who are watching our movements. But if you watched the movie Wings of Desire, you get one man's imagination if how it might work.

We were told and I still believe that each one of us an Angle siting on our shoulders on the right side and satan on the left side. each one told us different things; good from angel and bad from satan It was our choice to accept which one. Pure simple moral values. But the religion taught as to prefer the good one. We even asked whether upon death they were recycled. Now I am told there is only one Satan paradoxically spelt with capital S just like God..
Andrewphala: What are Angels doing today? Are they affecting us right now? Yes, they certainly are. I don't know if you are a Bible reader? Recall that in the prophecy concerning: " When the Son of Man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall be sit upon the throne of his glory; And before him shall be gathered all nations; and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats." ( Matthew 25:31-32) KingJames Bible We all pray for God's Kingdom to come in the Lord's Prayer. Gods Kingdom is the government that will bring the only solution to mankind's problems. The angels are doing the separating work today. "That is the way it will be at the end of the world---the angels will come and separate the wicked people from the godly ." ( Matthew 13:49) Living Bible. This angel-directed preaching work today received a mixed reaction from the people. Some say they are too busy to listen or simply refuse to do so. Others are hesitant or indecisive. Yet, many honest hearted ones, who are concerned about their future, have willingly responded. This answer is for the person that asked the question please.
You have probably been in many close calls and don't even know it. And you may have seen angels and not know it. Angels can appear as human men. For example, lets say someone randomly asks you for directions at a gas station that takes you two minutes to answer, not knowing that that causes you not to be on the road two minutes earlier. Then, you notice down the road that a car ran a green light and crashed with another car. If you would have never stopped to give the guy ( angel in disguise) directions, you would have been in the car that got hit at the intersection. This is how angels operate most of the time, very softly nudging you to safety.
Oh you have it wrong God uses people sometimes . You never know that person that took to long in a line . That old lady who chatted u up at the store ect could have been GOd working to slow u down . So bad doesn't happen

Our focus needs to be on Jesus, not His angels. Tho they are an awesome army. When they are worshiped they instantly tell the people to stop it. Keep your eyes on Jesus and rest in His finished work and your life will fall into line.
