Chapter 22--Balaam's Donkey
This is, without a doubt, one of my all-time favourite stories in the
Bible! Ever since I was a kid, this has been the bees-knees for me!
(Listen to Dan & Louie's version...good 'ol Tommy the Turtle!) :-)
This story has really impacted my life through the years and I just want
to share a little about that this week. I had grown up listening to
Dan & Louie telling the story about Balaam's donkey but beside the
AWESOME fact that a donkey spoke, I never really thought about it much.
I don't remember much of the event, but when I was 13 I think, God
really spoke to me through this story. And what He said was so simple
and has echoed in my heart ever since.
"If I can use a donkey to speak my words, I can absolutely use you."
Wow. I'm 25 now and still need to be reminded of that simple truth!
That is what I want to have you think about this week. If God can use a
donkey, He can for sure use you! He can use you anywhere and to do
anything! Let that be an encouragement when you start thinking about
all the other people you think are more qualified and way cooler than
you. If God can use a donkey, He can use. And the best part is...He
WANTS to use you. And He DELIGHTS in using you.
You're worth it. Be encouraged.
