What was the offence of Prophet Balaam?

Posted on

Numbers 22:22

And God’s anger was kindled because he went: and the angel of the LORD stood in the way for an adversary against him. Now he was riding upon his ass, and his two servants were with him.


  1. The offence of Balam seems to be his refusal to follow the simple instructions of God.
  2. God gave him an instruction not to pray for Ballak, but Balaam was enticed by the silver and gold Balak promised to give him.
  3. He kept asking God whether he should go and pray for Balak, despite God’s clear instruction for him not to do so.
  4. For his disobedience, Balaam foot was crushed to the wall by his ass.
  5. Sometimes God answers our prayer, but because the answers are not the one we desire, we keep asking Him for another answer.
  6. God will therefore either ignore our prayers or give us the answer we want.




O God, your will, not my will in Jesus name
