I pondered the blog about Balaam’s ass. It was God’s donkey, and Balaam was the ass. It was God’s donkey who deemed Balaam an ass. My conclusion: It is truly amazing what God can do, and who He can use, to ensure His will is accomplished. I heard about a lady (Bertha Smith, as I recall) who listened to a young pastor brag about how good and effective he was as God’s servant. When he paused from his gloating, she simply and powerfully stated, “It is amazing what God can do when you consider what He has to work with.” My conclusion: if God can use an ass to speak truth to Balaam, He can even use me. Maybe you, too. We are, at best, vessels; God is the power.
