Numbers 23-25, Mark 4:26-41
Did anyone else notice the word “Unicorn” is used in the place of the word “Ox” in 23:23? This says the version they are using is KJV. I looked in my KJV Scofield Bible and Unicorn is not the correct word. What is going on here??
Thank you, Dana!! :)
Prayed for you Elizabeth. Stay in the Word and He will meet you there… even if emotions don’t lead into or follow. Sometime it is just a discipline… like physical exercise. God wants us to trust & follow Him… again, even if we don’t feel like it. He is a rewarded of those who seek Him! We will reap what we sow. God, help us to follow You and help us to Want to follow You.
Please pray for me… I’m in a strange season in my life where I don’t want God. I pray to want to want him. I feel him calling, but for some reason my heart isn’t moved sometimes. Please pray I can worship him no matter how I feel, at all times.
Elizabeth, praying for you right now sweet girl. Thank you for being so brave as to share this. Grateful for you.
Praying for you girl! Please pray for me as well I’m in the same boat!
I am currently in a season of my life filled with fear and anxiety. The passage in Mark is so impactful and yet so hard to put into practice. Prayers are much appreciated!
Jesus we pray that just as you calmed the sea with a word, that you would bring peace into Julia’s life. I pray that she would have a sense of security, being tucked under your wing, even though the storms of anxiety and fear rage around her. Please show her the way forward, please give her ways of dealing with these thoughts and emotions. xo
Can anyone comment or provide teaching: Balaam was meeting with God and hearing his voice, but not a part of Israel. Moses met with God in the tent of meeting. A holy and set apart people and place. I will look in commentaries, but it’s a curious situation to me.
The Bible shows us many people who knew the Lord without the benefit of being raised in the faith of the Jews. Melchizedek, Noah, and even Abraham knew God before all of the commands were given to Moses. I guess Balaam met God the same way. Check out the book “Eternity in their hearts” by Don Richardson. It goes deeper into the subject of God revealing himself to people throughout the world who had never even heard of the Jews.
Also Rahab and Ruth are examples of “outsiders” (Gentiles) God used, even to bring about the birth of His Son.
Thank you ladies! It was that ability to hear God directly that kind of threw me off. I appreciate your responses! And the book suggestion!
God does not change his mind! (Num 23:19) His promises will be filled.
