Soul Snack 228/11 ... God's Posties
"Another angel, who had a golden censer, came and stood at the altar. He was given much incense to offer, with the prayers of all the saints, on the golden altar before the throne. The smoke of the incense, together with the prayers of the saints, went up before God from the angel's hand." (Rev 8:3-4)
Capture this scene, a workplace like no other and extravagant beyond imagination. Golden censers are placed on the heavenly altar to rise to a rainbow encircled eternal throne ((Rev 4:3)). Here resides no remote heavenly regent. Picture angels, forearms willingly extended upwards, caressing the very air of heaven.
The angels are at work mixing incense and prayers. This is one of their tasks in one of their workplaces.
There are no absent abilities here as your prayers and the angels' incense are deliberately mixed. Incense the final vehicle of prayer - angels the deliverers. The intention is so clear, your prayers must reach the throne of grace. Imagine if you can unnumbered prayers, both feeding and tearing at the Father's heart.
This Father is so wonderfully positioned to hear you. He has equipped His cosmos with an infallible, invisible postal system. Delivery is assured! This Father is always fully informed about you and from you - He even wants to be! Your prayers are literally in the hands of His posties, His angels.
all your daily prayers always reach His throne,
they are mixed with other things that are too pleasing to God,
there is a permanent and perfect supernatural assistance for their delivery and
God's Post Office guarantees delivery - it is always open, as He will have none lost or late.
