CHARACTER STUDY: MOSES 56

KEY SCRIPTURE: Numbers 23:8 “How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, whom the LORD hath not defied?”

God put words in the mouth of Balaam to say to Balak concerning the children of Israel. He said “How shall I curse whom God has not cursed? Or how shall I defy whom the Lord has not defied?

Balaam was revealing a great truth about the children of God. Our Lord Jesus has redeemed us from the curse of the law.  “We have also been blessed with all spiritual blessings in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. There are some Christians who are constantly living in fear because they believe somebody can cast a spell on them at their work place or some other aspect of life. The scriptures said the Christian in Christ is blessed. You have been blessed by God and can’t be cursed

On the flip side, we have seen some Christians experiencing the effect of curses. Why does this happen? A causeless curse will not stand (Proverbs 26:2). Curses prevail because children of God might have created a door way for them.  Psalm 11:3 says if the foundation be destroyed, what shall the righteous do? Our foundation is our right standing with the Lord. We have a right standing or are justified when we believe the truth. Wrong believing means wrong foundation. An improper application of the truth can make you vulnerable. Walking in disobedience to the word of God can allow the enemy to have a hold into your life.

In numbers 28:19, Balaam repeated the message the Lord gave him for Balak, he said “God is not man that He should lie, neither the son of man that He should repent. Has he said and shall he not do it? Or has he spoken and shall he not make it good? The lord by this message was revealing who he was. The Lord declares he is not a man who may change his words. He is a Spirit with absolute power. He has the ability to do whatever he says. He does not only have the ability but so long as he says it, it must be counted done. If He says it then it will come to pass. God is absolutely dependable. The Lord was telling Balak to stop demanding a change of His mind. His promises are yes in Christ Jesus.2nd Corinthians 1:20. This statement should be an encouragement to anyone who has put his trust in the word of God. If God said it, then it is done. Your declaration is, God said it, I believe it, and that settles it. Amen.

CONFESSION

I believe whatever God says. So long as I believe, I have that which I have believed, because he that believes has what he believes.
