I remember one night, my wife had been troubled by something, she finally came to bed after having stayed up for a while. She had been sound asleep for some time now and it would only be a few hours later that she would wake up only to be startled by some sort of shape or figure standing over our bed. As she realized what it was, she was astonished at how large the figure had been. To her amazement, all she could do was to stare.

What my wife had seen was an angel standing directly over our bed looking down on the both of us. She didn't quite know what to make of it but after having experienced this, she came to the conclusion that God had sent an angel to minister to her in her time of need.

We have had many visitations in our household revealing God's love and compassion toward us and this had proven to be another one of His ways to comfort my wife in a time of distress. God not only commands His angels to watch over and protect us but He also has given them the ability to minister to us as well.

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and of the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God." 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
