IN THE WRONG PLACE! – Numbers 31:8b Devotional

Hear Pastor Cecil read today's Evotional


Numbers 31:8b – Devotional

Numbers 31:8b

“They also killed with the sword Balaam the son of Beor.

As the children of Israel possessed the land promised them by the Lord, various kings were killed. Along with the many Kings mentioned is the name of a man named Balaam. Do you remember him? Balaam was hired by Balak to curse Israel. God took control of his tongue and instead of cursing Israel he blessed them.

Balak was so angry that he refused to pay Balaam, so Balaam said he was returning to his own country, which by the way was several hundred miles away. So what was Balaam doing back here in Moab? I think we see that this renegade prophet had compromised and sold himself out.

In Revelation 2:14 the Lord says this to the church at Pergamos; “But I have a few things against you, because you hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality.”

When we are convicted of our sins we are called to turn away from those sins completely. There is no going back? I have no idea what temptation you are facing right now in your life, but I urge you to make the right choice and choose to serve the Lord!

Blessings dear hearts! Walk with God today and be a blessing!
