Top 10 Day Spas in Los Angeles

Gabriel is my grey and white speckled four year old miniature Schnauzer dog. He is soft and cuddly and the best little ball of warmth on frigid winter days. His greatest entertainment is when I sit on the floor and I command him to find a ball. In excitement he begins to jump up and down anticipating my throws, some he catches in midair and others he runs the length of my living room and dining room breathlessly scooping up the ball in his mouth and bringing it back at breakneck speed.

From the moment that Gabriel came into my home he became my little guardian angel. He brought joy into my life and his constant unconditional love warmed my heart and gave me the strength to push ahead no matter how life can pull you down. I guess that’s the reason why, when Gabriel suddenly stops all of his activity and twists his head up and looks mysteriously into the empty air, I know he sees angels.

We live in a world where love is tossed aside for wealth and prestige. Having an unseen spiritual God in our lives becomes one thing we can let go of and not really miss until we are faced with a life changing decision that demands God. Sometimes these moments of faith are inspired by the very animals we love.

Numbers 22: 22-30, “God was angry that Balaam was going, and as Balaam was riding along on his donkey, accompanied by his two servants, the angel of the Lord stood in the road to bar his way. When the donkey saw the angel standing there holding a sword, it left the road and turned into the fields. Balaam beat the donkey and brought it back onto the road. Then the angel stood where the road narrowed between two vineyards and had a stone wall on each side. When the donkey saw the angel, it moved over against the wall and crushed Balaam’s foot against it. Again Balaam beat the donkey. Once more the angel moved ahead; he stood in a narrow place where there was no room at all to pass on either side. This time, when the donkey saw the angel, it lay down. Balaam lost his temper and began to beat the donkey with his stick. Then the Lord gave the donkey the power of speech, and it said to Balaam, ‘What have I done to you? Why have you beaten me these three times?’

Balaam answered, ‘Because you have made a fool of me! If I had a sword, I would kill you.’ The donkey replied, ‘Am I not the same donkey on which you have ridden all your life? Have I ever treated you like this before?’ ‘No,’ he answered.”

Remember the times in your life when you wished you had someone tell you that you were about to make a very big mistake. Wouldn’t it have been wonderful if God allowed your dog to speak and tell you not to do it? Think of all of the wasted time you wouldn’t spend debating inside your head whether or not the biggest financial move you were about to make would be the worst possible thing for you to do. 606 angel number

This is the reason why we need to make God a priority in our lives. We do not know the future. But when we pray and ask God to lead us through a tough decision, like a fabulous job opportunity, then suddenly our eyes are opened to things we would not have understood without the spirits help.

During the Old Testament times of the Bible people did not have the Holy Spirit guiding them in their lives. So they had to rely on people who had the ability to see into the unseen spiritual realm surrounding our world. This area is where the spirits gather to influence the minds of men and interact in their lives according to God’s plan for the world.

In order to understand the spiritual things of this world we must acknowledge the difference between good and evil. These differences are easily explained through the battle between God and Satan. God sent prophets, who were messengers, to warn and help people. While Satan worked through the false god’s of the world to entice people to do evil.

Balaam was a soothsayer, a man who had the ability to interact with evil spirits. Because he was spiritually gifted he also had the same ability that we have today to hear from both evil and good spirits. The story of Balaam and his talking donkey happened because Balaam was given a great job opportunity from a very wealthy King, King Balak.

Balak was an evil king who worshipped idols. During these worship times, human sacrifice and sexual immorality was performed on a regular basis. God, who loves all people, saw how Balak was leading the entire nation of Moab into sin. God decided that the only way to stop this evil from spreading to the Israelites was to completely annihilate Moab from the face of the earth.
