Numbers 23

Today we are reading Numbers 23. In this chapter we read about Balak the Moabite king asking Balaam to curse Israel. “God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it? Behold, I received a command to bless: he has blessed, and I cannot revoke it. He has not beheld misfortune in Jacob, nor has he seen trouble in Israel. The Lord their God is with them, and the shout of a king is among them. God brings them out of Egypt and is for them like the horns of the wild ox. For there is no enchantment against Jacob, no divination against Israel; now it shall be said of Jacob and Israel, ‘What has God wrought!’ Behold, a people! As a lioness it rises up and as a lion it lifts itself; it does not lie down until it has devoured the prey and drunk the blood of the slain.”” Numbers‬ ‭23‬:‭19‬-‭24‬ ‭ESV‬‬ In stead of cursing Israel, Balaam blesses them with words recalling God’s great might on their behalf. The enemy of the Israelites wanted to harm them. God protected them repeatedly. Why? Does God continue to protect His people? What blessings does God pronounce over you? Pastor Tim
