TOPIC: BALAAM’S SECOND MESSAGE
"Then Balak said to him, "Come with me to another place where you can see them; you will not see them all but only the outskirts of their camp. And from there, curse them for me.” So he took him to the field of Zophim on the top of Pisgah, and there he built seven altars and offered a bull and a ram on each altar. Balaam said to Balak, "Stay here beside your offering while I meet with him over there.” The Lord met with Balaam and put a word in his mouth and said, "Go back to Balak and give him this word.” So he went to him and found him standing beside his offering, with the Moabite officials. Balak asked him, "What did the Lord say?” Then he spoke his message: "Arise, Balak, and listen; hear me, son of Zippor. God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind.
Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill? I have received a command to bless; he has blessed, and I cannot change it. "No misfortune is seen in Jacob, no misery observed in Israel. The Lord their God is with them; the shout of the King is among them. God brought them out of Egypt; they have the strength of a wild ox. There is no divination against Jacob, no evil omens against Israel. It will now be said of Jacob and of Israel, See what God has done!’ The people rise like a lioness; they rouse themselves like a lion that does not rest till it devours its prey and drinks the blood of its victims.” Then Balak said to Balaam, "Neither curse them at all nor bless them at all!”Balaam answered, "Did I not tell you I must do whatever the Lord says?”
There no one in heaven, on this earth or the earth who has the power to overturn the command of God. If He God has blessed no one can turn it to a curse He alone has the final say. Indeed the Lord speaks and does it, there no lie in Him whatever He has said concerning your our lives is about to be fulfilled.
Prayer:-pray that the Lord will make people around you realize His blessings upon your life and celebrate with you
pray against any delay the devil has planned against your blessings
What to meditate on:
If only God has the final say how come the devil can destroy one’s life?
