God's Protection in Spite of Sworn Enemies - Balaam & Balak


Surviving the Wilderness // Numbers 22-24

From the sermon series, "Surviving the Wilderness; The Book of Numbers" -- Lessons from the story of Balaam and Balak teach us to keep our guard up, to avoid being misled by people who pose as spokespersons for God.




By Dr. Jerry Rueb

Life is not a smooth path through a garden; it is more like a dangerous journey through the desert. Along the way you will experience trials that will test your endurance. And you will face obstacles that threaten to weaken your faith in God and in yourself. You either learn life lessons or you will repeat the same mistakes and remain locked in the wilderness. The Old Testament book of Numbers is the historic saga of how Israel wandered for years in the desert facing the prospects of survival or death. The spiritual lessons they learned there will help you face the trying times of your life with the surprising resources God offers to all who call on Him in faith.
