Numbers 23:11 -- On Changing our Minds

"And Balak said unto Balaam, What hast thou done unto me? I took thee to curse mine enemies, and, behold, thou hast blessed them altogether."
Numbers 23:11

This story is an excellent reminder of how messed up our singlemindedness can get us when we are hoping for some other result besides God's will.  We can search everywhere and plead for God to show us another way.  We can travel to several places and hope the answer will be different.  We can try to sway God's servants to our side.  And still, the only answer that we will ever get is God's will.  No matter how we arrange things, no matter how we attempt to turn things on their head, and no matter how many times we ask, God's will continues to be the same.  Today, instead of being surprised, as Balak was, that trying to change the Lord's mind doesn't work, let's work on changing ourselves, and accepting what God has to say.
