you call and I answer you, My child. oh do I answer you. every time you are lost, sick, sad, needy, confused, empty, doubtful, angry, you call out My name and I answer you. but when you refuse to listen and obey because it’s not what YOU want, not part of YOUR plan, you turn your back on Me. but child, just as the shepherd searched and longed for his one missing sheep, so I search and long for your heart. I wish you knew My love for you. My love will never let you down, I promise you. and I know your heart. I know you struggle to trust others because every time you do, they let you down. I created you and them alike, as humans; imperfect, sinful, broken humans. so, beloved, do not judge My love by the lack of love shown to you by My children. they are still mine, no matter how broken they are. you are still Mine. no matter how many time you run from Me, I’ll chase after you. my precious child, I love you. I desire not to punish you but to give you pure, unrestrained, heavenly joy. run to Me in your happiness and in your sorrow and I will show you the One True Love that gives perfect peace, joy and rest.
just a quick update.
as y’all might have realized, I’ve stopped posting on the days,
as I didn’t see the feedback I wanted to see, I wanted to start a discussion, but anyways;
I didn’t stop readn tho; so I’ll just leave those 12 posts there to motivate people to read the bible as well. — it’s worth it. #godbless. ; )
numbers 21,8 - numbers 32,19.
"And Balaam answered and sai unto the servants of Balak, If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the word of the Lord my God, to do less or more."
"And God’s anger was kindled becos he went: and the angel of the Lord stood in the way for un adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him."
numbers 23,13 - numbers 23,14.
"And Balak said unto him, Come, I pray thee, with me unto another place, from whence thou mayest see them: thou shalt see but the utmost part of them, and shalt not see them all: and curse me them from thence.
And he brought him into the filed of Zophim, to the top of Pisgah, and built seven altars, and offered a bullrock and a ram on every altar.”
"And Balak said unto Balaam, Come, I pray thee, I will bring thee unto another place; peradventure it will please God that thou mayest curse me them from thence."
"These were the numbered of the children of Israel, six hunred thousand and a thousand seven hundred and thirty."
so, this is the words for today, and this is what I think..
first we see Balaam’s faith is really strong, and he will only do and live by and with the word of God;
next, which is kinda.. idk, Lord tells him to go, but when he is going then, he does not want him to go and is angry;
the next two, I don’t know, he always tells him to go some other place to curse the people of Israel from there, and I think he knows that he said that and understood it, but still he is going there, it’s like, knowing you won’t buy anything, but still going to the mall; I mean, it’s just a waste of time and effort, but anyways, he’s always going there I won’t understand it but whatever; the last word just shows us how big Israel been, once again, as yesterday I posted on this topic as well; so, have a nyce day; god bless. ; )
numbers 8,15 - numbers 21,7.
"I am not able to bear all this people alone, becos it is too heavy for me."
"And Moses said, The people, among whom I am, are six hundred thousand footmen; and thou hast said, I will give them flesh, that they may eat a whole month."
"(Now the man Moses was very meek, above all the men which were upon the face of the earth.)
"And wherefore hath the Lord brought us unto this land, to fall by the sword, that our wives and our children should be a prey.? where it not better for us to return into Egypt.?"
"And the Lord said unto Moses, How long will this people provoke me.? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?"
numbers 20,3 - numbers 20,4.
"And the people chode with Moses, and spake, saying, Would God that we had died when our brethren died before the Lord.
And why have ye brought up the congregation of the Lord into this wilderness, that we and our cattle should die there.?”
numbers 21,5 - numbers 21,7-
"And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness.? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread.
And the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.
Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned for we have spoken against the Lord, and against thee; pray unto the Lord, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people.”
so, moses is not able to bear all this people, and I totally understand him, becos these people, been straight up, stupid; but later more..
we also get to read how many people moses is talking about, 600000 men, now this must have been a real big pack of people, and they been moving around too, always after the cloud, all these six hundred thousand people;
next we can read that moses must have been the most humble human being you can imagine; and that’s where we all should aim at;
then, this people, Israel people, complain; and they do this alot and always the same thing, they are going on my nerves, and I can totally understand that they been going on God’s nerves; they always talk about why not return to egypt, but they had to work there under the pharaoh’s hand, and they had to work real hard; but still they want to go back, even tho they have seen the signs and wonders God has did on them; and I just can’t understand them; God also wants to kill them for they have sinned and complained so many times, but moses always prays to the Lord for foregiveness; so that’s why I understand the Lord saying, “how long will this people provoke me.? and how long will it be ere they believe me, for all the signs which I have shewed among them?” I totally understand it;
so next, they complain again, they always do;
and then, they compain again, always the same thing, but this time the Lord sends serpents that bite them, and again, I can understand it; but the interesting thing is, always after, they get punished for they sins, they aks for foregiveness; instead of not sinning at all; so the Lord again, has mercy, as always; but the thing is, they have been there before us, and the Lord our Father and God, still acts after the same pattern, becos we humans still act after the same pattern as well; we sin, we get punished, we regret; that’s the order of things; instead of not sinning, not getting punished, no use to regret; so the punishment, the cross, the pain, is there, for us to understand; becos the Lord seen back then, only if we get to feel pain, we are willing to regret; in a way.. god bless. ; )
