Numbers 23

“The LORD their God is with them, and the shout of a king is among them” (v21).  Even though Balak, king of Moab, offered money and sacrifices for the cursing of Israel (a powerful weapon in those days), his efforts were useless.  God Himself was guarding Israel, and no enemy or curse could harm them.  “For there is no enchantment against Jacob, no divination against Israel” (v23).  Like Balaam the prophet experienced, Israel’s only potential danger was their own rejection of the Lord.

“Has he said, and he will not do it?” (v19).  As God’s beloved people, we don’t have to fear.  He is the Good Shephard who will not abandon his sheep.
