What Has God Wrought!

Updated about 1 year ago.

The story of Balaam and his talking donkey is surely one of the weirdest stories from the exodus. As we look deeper than the surface story, we find that Israel was supposed to learn that God is sovereign over all of His creation and present and active in creation. It should have encouraged them to move boldly toward the Promised Land because if God was for them, who could be against them? Unfortunately, they chose to embrace the “god of this world,” which at that time was the pagan god Baal. This temptation is common to us today, leading many in our culture to reject the idea of a sovereign and present God and to embrace the god of this world, modern day naturalism. But even believers can believe in a sovereign God but believe Him to NOT be present and active in this world. In the end, Balaam was right. We will either live with a question mark or an exclamation point after the words, “What has God wrought.” (September 25, 2022) Numbers 23.19-23.
