Do whatever the Lord says

Powerful thought today by Ed M., on Balaam in Num 23.26. Here’s one small portion:

A truth recognized. Balaam, the famous heathen diviner, spoke the truth. “I must do whatever the Lord says,” Numbers 23:26. Obedience was an ethical obligation, Exodus 23:22; Leviticus 19:37; Deuteronomy 6:18. God expects an unquestioning compliance, Hebrews 13:20,21. Jesus does, too, John 15:14.

Focus question: What does the Lord say today? What incentives do I have not to do them? What reward comes form obedience?
