God is not like unto a man. To behold Him to be like unto us is to put Him into a box where He does not belong. Anybody who says they know what He is thinking is wrong. Anybody who says they know why He does things is lying. Nobody is able to understand the mind of God. However, we are able to have things revealed unto us by God, but this still does not mean that we know God’s full intent for us and others. We know that we need to repent of our sins when we fall into transgression, but God has no need to for He is perfect. If God says something it will happen, for He does not lie. God does bless us through His commandments, for they keep us in line with Him and His laws for mankind. It is written, “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it. He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither hath he seen perverseness in Israel: the Lord his God is with him, and the shout of a king is among them. God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn.” (Numbers 23:19-22)
People can fight against God and His people, but they will not prevail in the end. They may curse God, but this cursing will be their own pitfall when they die and end up in hell. If anyone says that you need to curse God, then bless the Lord, our God, instead. What the Lord asks of us, we should do, not as the world lives, but as God would live in us. It is written, “surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought! Behold, the people shall rise up as a great lion, and lift up himself as a young lion: he shall not lie down until he eat of the prey, and drink the blood of the slain. And Balak said unto Balaam, Neither curse them at all, nor bless them at all. But Balaam answered and said unto Balak, Told not I thee, saying, All that the Lord speaketh, that I must do?” (Numbers 23:23-26) I love how Balaam was tempted by Balak to deny God and His people, while cursing them, and instead, He stood firm in his faith. This is a great example of how to live for God when persecution and adversity come into our lives. It is my prayer that each one of you will remain in your faith in Jesus until the end. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that Your will be done. Help me to grow in my faith and not fall by the wayside as many other Christians have over the years. Many people would wish that I would curse You and no longer live for You. They hate it when I bless You and do not deny my strong convictions in You. Persecutions have come into my life many times, but my faith in You has remained and gotten stronger. Circumstances are not always easy to bear, but with the Holy Spirit in my life, it is much easier to get by. Your comfort and peace are out of this world, and I am grateful that You have blessed me. So I say to the people who curse You and Your people that all blessings on earth and in heaven belong to You. As they curse You, I bless, honor, and praise Your Holy Name, God. The wicked will one day find out how wrong they were in denying You, Jesus, while having done so by leading others astray also. How great is their destruction. No person will ever understand Your ways perfectly. To think that we can comprehend Your mind is outright wrong. I will not put You in a box as some people have. If You said something in the Bible, then I believe it. I will not question my King. I love You, Lord. I bless You. Amen.
