God’s blessing makes you unstoppable!

The Blessing is greater than the curse!

There is a tremendous power in God’s blessing! God’s blessing is greater than any curse, and when God’s blessing is on your life you are unstoppable.

When king of Moab, Balak realized he couldn’t beat Israelites in an open battle he requested Balaam to curse Israel (Numbers 22-24). Instead of cursing the people of God, Balaam ended up declaring blessing!

However, the enemy of God’s people wouldn’t give up, but planned a new scheme:

“While the Israelites were camped at Acacia Grove, some of the men defiled themselves by having sexual relations with local Moabite women. These women invited them to attend sacrifices to their gods, so the Israelites feasted with them and worshiped the gods of Moab.” (Numbers‬ ‭25‬:‭1‬-‭2‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

Sexual compromise led to worship of other gods. Chapter 31:16 reveals more about what happened:

”These are the very ones who followed Balaam’s advice and caused the people of Israel to rebel against the Lord at Mount Peor. They are the ones who caused the plague to strike the Lord’s people.“

Jesus uses what happened as an illustration to the church in Pergamum:

”But I have a few complaints against you. You tolerate some among you whose teaching is like that of Balaam, who showed Balak how to trip up the people of Israel. He taught them to sin by eating food offered to idols and by committing sexual sin.” (Revelation‬ ‭2‬:‭14‬ ‭NLT‬)

In other words: a teaching that approves living in compromise and justifies immoral lifestyle in one way or another.

Decide to make the Word of God YOUR standard personally! Receive God’s Word with a humility of heart, believing, and submitting to His will. This will keep you in the center of His plan, and under His blessing that has great power!
