DAILY READINGS: Exodus 39:1-43; Psalms 92:1-93:5; Acts 23:12-35

Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob…What hath God wrought! Number 23:23

In this chapter we learn of Balak’s intense desire to have God curse Israel. He tried to get Balaam to do it but it proved to be impossible for him to curse God’s chosen people. He could only repeatedly tell of God’s blessing to them in spite of their many failures. Satan wants mankind to be cursed, but God’s Son has already borne the curse on the cross of Calvary. Now we can look back on our life and see only salvation blessings—His loving care in all situations. We too can joyfully exclaim “What hath God wrought.” —Mary Robins

And as He stands in victory, sin’s curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine, bought with the precious blood of Christ. —Keith Getty and Stuart Townend
