Reasoning With The Lord
Sinners are blind. They do not see the drawn sword of divine judgment awaiting them in their dangerous path. Divine instructions and obstructions do not delay or divert them. Even when God narrows their path with difficulties they press on (vv24-25). The lesson of Balaam is the warning that we may so defy God or attempt to manipulate him that we fall into irredeemable insensibility to his will and voice.
