Balak again wanted Balaam to curse the people of Israel. He tried multiple times from different places and with elaborate sacrifices.
Balaam’s second message for him, however, is the same. God has blessed his people and there would be no undoing of that.
👉 Balaam’s Message
- God does not lie or change his mind
- the command to bless would not be revoked
- the Lord their God is with the people
- God is for them
And – because Balak is nothing if not persistent – he takes Balaam to a third location and again offers sacrifices and seeks a word from the Lord.
To be continued…
[I can’t help but wonder how often I have prayed – heard an answer from God – and kept praying insisting on a different answer.]
You are loved. Happy Tuesday, friends.
