How to Release God’s Angels In My Life

In this article, we will dive into scripture to learn how to activate and release God’s angels in our lives. We will explore six different ways that can attract and release angels in your life. So, grab your Bible, and let’s get started…

Welcome to one of three angel posts. (For the other two posts, you can check them out here: The 5 Types of Angels, Understanding The Work and Ministry of Angel) In this article, we will be looking at how to release God’s angels in our lives.

Now the idea of putting your angels to work might be new for you or something you’ve heard of. A lot of Christians live out their entire life not even acknowledging that God’s messengers are around and about us doing His will.

The Bible is filled with stories of men and women of God whom angels aided. More on that later.

I believe things haven’t changed (Hebrews 13:8). Angels are still at work doing God’s will on the Earth.

They are here to minister, protect, guide and send us messages. But there are things that actually attract angels to us and that help them accomplish what God has intended. Crazy right?

Learn how to release God's angels in your life by learning what the Bible says!
Pin for later!

Now you may be thinking, what do you mean we can help the angels accomplish stuff and release them?

How can Angels be attracted to some people more than other people? That makes no sense.

But if you really start to dig deep into scripture and see how angels function you will realize there are certain things that cause God’s messengers to be active in your life.

If you’re completely new to the topic of angels then I highly recommend you check out my post on The Five Types of Angels in the Bible and Understanding The Work and Ministry of Angels. They will help you build a foundation.

I want to clarify before we start that angels should never be worshipped or elevated to the status of God. Angels are God’s messengers. They are here to help us accomplish God’s will in our lives.

They are NOT to be worshipped. The Bible is clear that Jesus has full authority over all the angelic hosts.

who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand (speaking of Jesus Christ)–with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him. 1 Peter 3:22

I love what Lester Sumrall says about angels,

The ministry of angels in the Bible is limited to natural physical help. They are never a savior, lord, or god. They work for man; they are agents of God who bring to us the message that God wants fulfilled in our lives.”

Lester Sumrall

They themselves worship God and are in awe of God’s holiness, glory, and splendor. That’s how AWESOME God is!

One other thing I want to clarify… no matter if you have or haven’t seen or experienced angels, they are actively at work in our lives. It doesn’t matter if we are aware of it or not. (Hebrews 13:2)

Now, let’s get down to business learning how to release God’s angels!

Angels That Helped People In The Bible

There are countless examples of angels coming alongside people in the Bible at precisely the right time and place. Let’s explore a couple of these angelic encounters.

Take Hagar as an example, for instance. In Genesis 21, Abraham sends her and Ishmael away to the wilderness with limited provisions.

Soon the water runs out, and death seems imminent. Lost and forsaken, God hears Ishmael’s cries of weakness. He sends an angel calling to Hagar from heaven, “Do not fear! God has heard your cry and will provide water.”

Just then, a well miraculously appears, sparing their lives.

Or remember when ferocious lions surround Daniel in the lions’ den?

Yet God dispatches an angel to supernaturally muzzle the predators all night long (Daniel 6).

Daniel emerges unharmed! This displays God’s awesome ability to command His angel armies to control animals and circumstances and provide supernatural protection.

In the New Testament, an angel dramatically frees Peter from prison in Acts 12. King Herod imprisoned Peter, planning to execute him publicly. But the night before, an angel enters the locked jail cell, awakens Peter, and miraculously escorts him outside past two guards!

God can leverage angels to orchestrate stunning rescues and overwhelm human security when furthering His plans.

Those are just a few examples, and here is a table of some main characters and how God sent angels to help them during times of need. It it’s exhaustive but it gives a good foundation.

Again, I want to emphasize that these men and women are focused on God, not on angels.

How to Attract and Release God’s Angels


Without faith, it is impossible to please God. Hebrews 11:6

Faith causes things to happen in the spiritual realm and in the natural realm. It can move mountains, raise the dead, and see the world changed for Jesus.

Faith is not for the faint of heart. Those who walk in outrageous faith can do things that no man can do because they believe God can.

Where faith is in action, God’s angels will be there. We can’t expect the angelic to move in our lives if we have no faith. We can see this in numerous stories of the Bible.

Intimacy with the Lord

This should be a given. The closer you are to God, the more His kingdom will be manifested in your life (John 15:5). But it’s not about just knowing about God; it’s about knowing Him personally.

God wants us to be his friends, not just someone who can quote scripture verses or say “Amen!” during a sermon. Intimacy looks like spending time with the Lord in his presence, and digging deep into His word…believing and trusting what it says!

God’s angels love His presence! The more time we spend with God, the more His presence we have in our lives. This leads to more angelica activity in our lives.

I love what the Prophet Daniel says in chapter 11, verse 32-

… but the people that do know their God shall be strong and do exploits.

Walking in your Calling

A man walking in his divine purpose and calling

God has a specific call on every person’s life. It’s essential that we discover what the Lord is calling us to do in our lives and pursue it.

Every man and woman of the Bible who pursued their calling had angelic backing in their life.

You can see this in Elisha’s life when he is walking in his calling as a prophet. When the enemy tried to come up against it. God sent an army of angels to protect. (2 Kings 6:17)


Understanding your calling, being intimate with God, and having faith are needed, but with all of those things, we still need to be obedient to God’s word and the Holy Spirit’s leading.

You can have all three of those things and still be disobedient. It’s almost crazy to think how that is possible. But it is….look at the life Jonah!

He has all three of those things going for him yet he was disobedient. And we all know where that led him! Disobedience closes our hearts off to what God wants to do. When that happens, it leaves our angels at a halt.

An Active Prayer life

Prayer is a powerful weapon – (James 5:16). When we pray, we are literally shifting the heavens. Prayer causes angels to be released to do the will of God.

We see this in Daniel’s book when he prayed in Daniel 10. Asking God to release angels to protect, help, or encourage is wisdom.

Being Led by the Holy Spirit

I love this quote from Norvel Hayes.

“The greatest deliverance you will ever receive is the deliverance from yourself.”

Norval Hayes

To be led by the Holy Spirit, you really have to learn to let go of old mindsets and things that can hinder you. You could be asking, “What is the difference between this and obedience?

When you’re being led by the Holy Spirit there’s always anointing on it.

You can easily be an obedient Christian and do all the things that are right, but that doesn’t mean the holy spirit is breathing on it at that moment. To be Spirit-led is to follow His leading.

A quick example is this: the Word of God says we should minister to one another and pray for each other. So, you go to church and you pray for people. And it’s perfect… God did great stuff during that time.

Now, let’s say that same day at church, the Holy Spirit tugs on your heart to pray for someone specifically. Then you go up to the individual, and you ask him, “Hey, can I pray for you?”

All of a sudden, God moves mightily during that time. And that person walks away changed because of the anointing of the Holy Spirit.

I hope you can see the difference between the two. God uses both, but there is a difference. We want to be obedient and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. Where the Holy Spirit leads, His angels will be there.

So let’s recap on releasing God’s angels
