Are You A Balaam

Does God have to tell you over and over what He wants you to do, or where He wants you to go? Do you keep asking God over and over for the same thing, after He has already given you an answer? In Numbers, we see that everytime Balak asks Balaam to curse Israel, Balaam says let me go and meet with my God and see what He would have me do. Everytime God tells him no, that He has blessed Israel. But yet when Balak asks him to curse them, he goes back to God again, as if God is going to change His mind about what He has already told him, just because Balak wants them cursed.

We do the same thing when we go to God over and over again for the same healing or the same blessing that God has already told us in His word over and over again that we are healed by the stripes and blood of His Son Jesus. We have the blessings of Abraham our father. We read it in His word, we read His promises to us, but yet we look at or listen to circumstances around us, and then we start pleading with God to do what He has already done.

Numbers 23 v 19.....God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?......

In other words, if God said it you can take Him for His word. Have you ever made a deal with someone you trusted, and just took them at their word that they would do something. How much more so then can you trust God with His word and believe that what He says He will do. AMEN!

If there is something in your life that you keep going to God about, look in His word and see what the final answer is. See what He says about it. He will not change His mind. Find it in the word, and then believe Him and not what the world is trying to tell you. AMEN!

The same with anything that you may be doing, that you know is not right. Look in the word, if God says it is wrong, it is still wrong today. If He says, do not murder, then do not murder, if He says to keep the Sabbath Holy, then it is still to be done today, if He says, do not covet, then do not covet. He is a better parent than we are. We sometimes tell our children something and then let them wear us down with their pleading and begging and puppy dog eyes, but God is not influenced by man. If He says NO, then He means NO, if He says Yes, then He means YES! AMEN!

RTB...Numbers 25-27...
