For he will command his angels concerning you to guard in all your ways; 12 they will lift up you in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
Meaning: Comes from Life Application Bible
One of the functions of angels is to watch over believers. There are examples of guardian angels in Scripture (1 Kings 19:5, Daniel 6:22, Matthew 18:10, Luke 16:22, Acts 12:7) although there is no indication that one angel is assigned to each believer. Angels can also be God's messengers. Angels are not visible, except on special occasions (Numbers 22:31, Luke 2:9). Verses 11 & 12 were quoted by Satan when he tempted Jesus (Matthew 4:6, Luke 4:10-11). It is comforting to know that God watches over us even in times of great stress and fear.
