Obedience to God's Will

If two angels were to receive at the same moment a commission from God, one to go down and rule earth's grandest empire, the other to go and sweep the streets of its meanest village, it would be a matter of entire indifference to each which service fell to his lot, the post of ruler or the post of scavenger; for the joy of the angels lies only in obedience to God's will.

[E. M. Bounds]

Psalm 103:20 ... Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

Psalm 91:11 ... For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

1 Peter 3:22 ... Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
