Events of the Bible: Balaam and His Donkey- Weekly Devotion

What We Read This Week:
The Moabites trembled with fear when they saw Israel because they were as numerous as the stars of the heavens. They also knew that the Lord was at work among Israel. They tried to hire Balaam, an evil man and prophet to curse Israel. However, when he went to do so, Gods anger burned against him and he sent an angel into his path. Balaam could not see the angel but the donkey could and wouldn't move along the path. Balaam began to beat the donkey and the donkey spoke and then Balaam could see the angel. Three times he tried to curse Israel and ended up blessing them each time.
Relating it to Your Life:
Have you ever been in a situation where you felt so compelled to do something based off what the world says is right yet you feel so conflicted because what God wants you to do is the exact opposite. That's what Balaam was feeling during this time. When it comes to crossroads in your life like this, just remember the people in your life now are temporary, God is forever.
Next Weeks Reading: Deuteronomy 34
