Can I See Angels If I Have
Does having a close relationship with God guarantee your chances of having an angel experience?
- Who are the people most likely to see angels?
- How can I bring more angels into my home?
- Do angels appear to children with Down Syndrome?
- Is my puppy my special guardian angel?
Could those who have had angel experiences be the ones more in need of seeing God's spiritual creations? I lump myself as a Doubting Thomas.
Who are the ones most likely to have angels in their lives? Those who are the most spiritual? Those who need it the most?
This is one question that cannot by answered by conducting a poll. It would be impossible to determine how spiritual a person is and then see whether or not they have experienced angels. What we do know is that many dedicated Christians have never seen an angel while some unlikely individuals, who consider themselves far from God, have had angels intervene in their lives. Having encounters with angels is not a mark of spirituality.
Angels are active in everyone’s life, but not everyone sees them and the Bible gives no instructions on how to contact angels either. The scriptures do teach that angels come into a person’s life when God decides to make an angel's presence known. Through the centuries, many Christians passing through a dry spiritual period longed for a special closeness to God. At such times, they questioned why God did not give them an experience to help them. Mature believers have come to understand that it takes more faith to trust God in the darkness than in the light. Less mature believers, on the other hand, are more in need of mountain-top experiences. One thing is clear. God works in mysterious ways and, for reasons we do not understand, sends his angels to some and not to others.
What can I do to bring even more of God’s angels into my life and my home? I met an angel one time when I was 27. She saved my life and I just want more and more about heaven, angels, and God’s love in my life. Angels are one of my greatest passions--they are truly a gift from God himself.

How wonderful! What a blessing to have an angel save your life. The angel not only saved your life but also opened your heart so you would love God more completely. The angels always point a person to God, never to themselves or other angels. Instead of asking, “How can I bring even more of God’s angels into my life and home?” your real question should be, “How can I bring more of God into my life and home?” The Bible gives a clear answer—love (I Corinthians 13).
The best way to show our love for God is to love one of his children. Make it your goal to consistently do acts of love. Look for those who may need love most. In this way, you will bring even more of God into your life and home. If it is God’s will, more angels will, too.
