Are you a “Christian”, and yet you find yourself getting too close to the edge? You might be in danger. It’s time to decide which side you’re going to stand on.
Daily Bible Reading: Num. 22-36
God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Num. 23:19 KJV
In these chapters we see God sending Balaam to bless the children of Israel, but there was another person named, Balak, who was the King of Moab – enemies of God’s people, who wanted Balaam to curse God’s people. Though Balaam seemed to be someone who wasn’t really stable in his relationship with God, still there was a great spiritual gift in his life. It proves that God can grace a person with spiritual gifts, talents, and abilities, but it’s up to that individual to exercise their own free will to use them for God’s glory. So, Balaam asked the Lord, and basically the Lord said, “No, only bless!” Balak got pretty upset about it, but Balaam said, “Hey, if the Lord said He’s going to bless these people, how can it turn out any other way?!”
Biblical illiteracy is at an all-time high. God has declared those in Christ, “You’re Blessed IN CHRIST!”, but still Christians walk around wondering if God is against them. Listen, if God is for you, then you don’t ever have to wonder about it. Just walk in the blessing, don’t compromise, and don’t hold hands with God’s enemies to go on a stroll down a prim rose path with them. Just stick with God’s Word!
“Lord, I thank you today that Your Word is forever settled in Heaven! Let me never get to the point where I prostitute the gifts You have given me to enable the enemy to do damage against God’s people, like Balaam. Let me be preserved and found faithful until You come. Give me a greater love for Thine Holy Word, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
