Numbers 22:21 – 41

.

Questions:

1. If you were to typecast your personality with that of an animal stereotype, which would fit you and why?

.

2. Why do you think God is angry with Balaam for leaving (verse 22), since just prior, He had told him to go and later repeats that command (verses 20, 35)?

.

3. How might this be explained by the interaction and insights of Balaam and his donkey?

.

4. What do you think God is trying to teach the opportunistic and spiritually blind Balaam through his loyal and spiritually alert donkey?

.

5. Are you more like Balaam or his donkey? How so?

.

6. When have you suddenly and stubbornly found yourself opposing God, much to your surprise? How did He point out your error?

.

7. How many run-ins with God’s angel or roadblocks did it take before He opened your eyes?

.

8. Do you think it is possible to always know God’s will every step of the way? Why or why not?

.

9. What are some ways we can attune ourselves to God’s will for us? Which of these will you begin incorporating into your life, now?

.

10. Judging from your prayer life, are you doing God’s bidding? Or is God constantly being asked to do yours?
