Entourage

I think all of us desire an entourage in some way. It represents being surrounded by friends and the people we like. This is an inherent need everyone has.

However, if we have the wrong entourage it can bring trouble, and its impact can be devastating. My great-grandmother used to say, “Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.” This is a true statement. Who we have around us determines so much in our lives. This is why God wants to help us in our relationships to have the right people in our lives.

But an entourage can mean other things, too. It has the connotation of fame and having notoriety at some level. We think people who have an entourage are those that are rich or wield enough power to have a lot of followers. They use it for protection and to possibly cover their tracks when doing something in secret. Yes, the idea of an entourage may be good or may be bad, depending on how we see it.

But I believe God has an entourage, too.

In fact, every day and everywhere we go He has given a heavenly entourage for our benefit. We all feel the weight of things coming at us like finances, relationships, marriage and more. But in these moments we can know there is more with us than against us. This is because of the entourage God has given.

Psalm 91:11 says: “For He will order his angels to protect you wherever you go.”
‭‭
Hebrews 1:14 says: “Therefore, angels are only servants — spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation.”

Notice, His entourage is angels, and He gives them to us for our benefit. Just think, we are never alone. There is always more with us than against us. I think it’s important that we are reminded of this every day. We are in Jesus, and that means we have an entourage that is around us and fighting for us. This also means our entourage is there to lead us for our good, and to bring us into God’s plan. We don’t have to worry about being deceived, tricked or double crossed, because God is good and He brings good things to our lives.

So, what are you facing today?

Please remember, you have an entourage from heaven. You may not see them, you may not feel them, but they are there. We walk by faith not by sight! God has an angelic host around us wherever we go. They are by our cars, around our houses, on our jobs and where we are! This is our entourage from heaven!

No matter what you’re facing and no matter what you’re up against, God has your back. He will come through for you. He has given you the help you need, keeping you from all harm and leading you in the path of His purpose. We may not understand what’s going on and we may not see our desires when we want them, but He will bring us through. The entourage of heaven is doing His bidding and watching over us to make sure it is done.

There is nothing that our enemy does that God can’t do something about!

Jesus himself had an entourage from heaven that helped Him and ministered to Him in time of need. So I encourage you, lift up your eyes to God, worship Him in spirit and in truth. Remember, there is an entourage surrounding you. No matter what you face, there is always more with you than against you.

Have a great week, and may you receive His blessings. I truly believe something good is going to happen to you this very day.

The best is yet to come,
PD
