The bible is replete with examples showing that angels would guide people in the direction that they should follow. For example, angels must have guided Abraham as he journeyed to and in the land of promise. He revealed this when he sent his servant to get a wife for his son, telling him that the Lord would send His angel to guide him (Gen 24: 7). As Jacob ran away from home, he had a dream in which he saw angels walking up and down a ladder set up between heaven and earth. This indicated that he was going to be blessed. When returning home, angels met him to assure him that God would protect him from his brother Esau.
An angel guided the Jews through the wilderness for 40 years, showing them exactly where to go. How would you know that angels are guiding you? Sometimes they give information about upcoming events that you should stay away from. They may speak in parables or speak as if referring to themselves. In other situations they may speak directly to your situation. Once I met a young man at a bus stop and he told me about a situation that helped me to avoid it at all costs when it did arise later. Wonderful angels.
