When we ask God to guard us and lead us he will definitely lead us guide us. He will block the ways which is not liken by god but God opens the way which he likes as we read in Numbers 22: 21-41
God closed the eyes of Balaam but his donkeys eyes are opened, his donkey saw the angel of the lord who is blocking the way but gods plan is always different when we fullysurrender our life as per his plan his will he will guide you and he will open your spiritual eyes and show what his plans are for you.
Similarly when we surrender our lives to him he will guard our mouth and cause us speak only what he want us to speak like we read in numbers 22:38(Well,I have come to you now,” Balaam replied. “But I can’t say whatever I please.I must speak only what God puts in my mouth.)Baalam saysI must speak only what God puts in my mouth. We should allow god to take control of our situationTheLordis slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.’19In accordance with your greatlove, forgive the sin of these people, just as you have pardoned them from the time they left Egypt until now.”( Numbers 14:18) Our god is forgiving god he forgives the sins of the people of Israel he can forgive our sins as well (Number 14:19 )if youcling to word of god he will give you a land flowing with milk and honey
TheLord put a word in Balaam’s mouth (Numbers 23: 5 ),our god is the one who put his word in our mouth as well when we surrender ourselves to him and he will take control of our entire life.
Life is the beautiful gift of God. Before we are knitted in our mother’s womb God knows us and called us by our name. What a beautiful godwe serve he is our creator, he is our father; to enjoy the life beautifully all we need to surrender our lives into the hands of our creator. He will shape you as the potter shapes the clay and make beautiful vessel in the same manner when we surrender ourselvesto the Lord he will make us a beautiful vessel.
God is not human, that he should lie,not a human being, that he should change his mind(Numbers 23:19) God will definitely fulfils the promise which he has given you. God will bless you as it pleases God to bless his people Israel in the same manner he is going to bless you abundantly( Numbers 24:1 saysBalaam saw that it pleased theLordto bless Israel). Baalak wanted Balaam to curse Israel. The Lord God wanted to bless Israel through Balaam so God put his word in the mouthof Balaam. Out of the mouth of Balaam came the blessings for Israel, when the spirit of God came on him and he spoke:
“The prophecy of Balaam son of Beor,
the prophecy of one whose eye sees clearly,
4the prophecy of onewho hears the words of God,
who sees a vision from theAlmighty,[a]
who falls prostrate, andwhose eyes are opened:
5“How beautiful are your tents, Jacob,
your dwelling places, Israel!
6“Like valleys they spread out,
like gardens beside a river,
like aloes planted by theLord,
like cedars beside the waters.
7Water will flow fromtheir buckets;
their seed will have abundantwater.
“Their king will be greater than Agag;
their kingdom will be exalted.
8“God brought them out of Egypt;
they have the strengthof a wild ox.
They devour hostile nations
and break their bonesin pieces;
with their arrows they piercethem.
9Like a lion they crouchand lie down,
like a lioness—whodares to rouse them?
“May those who bless you be blessed
and those who curse you becursed!”
( We read it in Numbers 24: 3-9)
Satan tries to bribe us giving the worldly pleasure but we should be careful .We ought to do the things whichgod command us to do (as we read in Numbers 24: 13 ‘Even if Baalak gave me all the silver and gold in his palace, I could not do anything of my own accord, good or bad, to go beyond the command of theLord—andI must say only what theLordsays’?)
A star will come out of Jacob; a sceptre will rise out of Israel.A ruler will come out of Jacob(Numbers 24:17,19) what a beautiful blessings for the people of Israel . We are Beloved Gods children almighty want to bless us and make us a ruler and wants to make us a real star for this world.All what God wants from us is to surrender ourselves in his mighty hand and he will leads us in his ways, wonderfully.
God chooses Joshua and he gave him the spirit of leadership as God has a plan to make him ruler after Moses So the Lord said to Moses, “Take Joshua son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit of leadership,[a]and lay yourhand on him.19Havehim stand before Eleazar the priest and the entire assembly and commission him in their presence.20Givehim some of your authority so the whole Israelite community will obey him.21Heis to stand before Eleazar the priest, who will obtain decisions for him by inquiring of the Urim before theLord.At his command he and the entire community of the Israelites will go out, and at his command they will come in.”(Numbers 27: 18-21). If you surrender as per the will of God he will make a leader because the spirit of God will lead you and your people.
Our God is loving god, there is one and only god. He don’t like us to bow down to other gods except him.He don’t want us to eat the sacrificial meal and bowed down before other gods. If you do so, Gods anger will burn against you. So be cautious.
We should be zealous for the honour of our Living God ( Numbers26:11-14 Phinehas son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron, the priest,has turned my anger away from the Israelites. Since he was as zealous for my honour among them as I am, I did not put an end to them in my zeal.12Thereforetell him I am making my covenant of peace with him.13Heand his descendants will have a covenant of a lasting priesthood, because he was zealous for the honour of his God and made atonement for the Israelites.”) .
Let’s surrender of lives our days everything into gods hand and enjoy his works done through us.
Have a blessed day in Christ.
