February 20 "Line Drawn" Numbers 21-22

The line was drawn by an angel of the Lord. God opposed him. Stood in his way.

Then the Lord opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the road with his sword drawn. So he bowed low and fell facedown." Numbers 22:31.

It was the Great Divide that stopped me in my tracks.  Balaam counted the donkey as an adversary.  It is our best friend that meets us where we are, exposes us for who we are, and stands in our way.  When God opens our eyes, we see our sin and name it for the rebellion it is,  It's a Beautiful Thing when we are crossed, when a line is drawn, and God stands in our way.

  1. Not certain what is more amusing: a donkey who talk or the man who talks back to the donkey.

    “But I can’t say whatever I please. I must speak only what God puts in my mouth.”

    My prayer today:
    LORD, help me to speak only what you put in my mouth.
