As believers, we need special help to discern the presence of angels, says author and Bible teacher Jennifer Eivaz. The spiritual gift of discerning of spirits can help us, she says, along with a measure of faith.
"The Bible tells us that the angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, that's Psalm 34, verse seven, and I'm trusting that you fear and reverence God," Eivaz says on the Take 10 With Jenn podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. "And if that's the case, then we absolutely know scripturally, whether you deserve them or not, the angels are right here with us."
Asking for the ability to see angels is biblical, Eivaz explains. The apostle Paul prayed that the eyes of our hearts would be enlightened so we would know things about God's kingdom (Eph. 1:18), she says. "That prayer was not just for the Ephesians; it was for you and me." She also points to Elisha's powerful prayer for his servant in 2 Kings 6. "When their lives were threatened, he prayed that his servant's spiritual eyes would be open to see all the angels that were protecting them when they needed it."
As she wrote her most recent book, Seeing the Supernatural, Eivaz says, "I asked the Lord to allow me to see His angels. I know from His Word that they are here; they're nearby. And He was so gracious to me; He was so good to me to open my eyes right then and there. And I saw to the right of me, floating up in the air, an angel. And he was about 6 feet tall. I could feel the light of God, the heat of God—that's a good experience—radiating off this angel."
