“The angel of the LORD asked him, ‘Why have you beaten your donkey these three times? I have come here to oppose you because your path is a reckless one before me. The donkey saw me and turned away from me these three times. If it had not turned away, I would certainly have killed you by now, but I would have spared it.'”I wonder how often God tries to warn us, but like Balaam we don’t see it. How often do we find ourselves on “reckless paths” but not realize it until it’s too late? We fall into sin and act like it was inevitable; but if we’d been paying attention, we’d have seen the Lord’s warning signs. Father, help me to be sensitive to Your Spirit today, to hear Your voice, to heed Your warnings. Give me the grace to follow Your path today.
