Can God be trusted? While we know the answer to this question should be a resounding, “Yes,” we must admit that there are times when we find it difficult, if not impossible, to trust God. We can easily find ourselves in situations where He seems unavailable or, at best, disinterested in our condition. But Numbers 24 provides us with a much-needed reminder that our God is always in control and always fully aware of what is going on in and around our lives. Even when we are oblivious to the invisible dangers surrounding us, nothing escapes God’s notice. He is faithful to protect us from both seen and unseen dangers. And He is faithful to keep each and every promise He has made to us. God had chosen Israel as His very own possession and, while they had proven themselves incapable of remaining faithful to Him, He would not abandon them. And when the enemies of Israel were busy making plans for their demise, God was actively interceding on their behalf – keeping His commitment to bless them.
