Numbers 21:1–22:20; Luke 1:26-56; Psalm 57:1-11; Proverbs 11:9-11

There Shall Be A Performance
And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: and she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord. – Luke 1:41-45

He Performeth All Things (for me)
Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me. He shall send from heaven, and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth. – Psalm 57:1-3

I Cannot Go Beyond the Word
And Balak sent yet again princes, more, and more honourable than they. And they came to Balaam, and said to him, Thus saith Balak the son of Zippor, Let nothing, I pray thee, hinder thee from coming unto me: for I will promote thee unto very great honour, and I will do whatsoever thou sayest unto me: come therefore, I pray thee, curse me this people. And Balaam answered and said unto the servants of Balak, If Balak would give me his house full of silver and gold, I cannot go beyond the word of the LORD my God, to do less or more. Now therefore, I pray you, tarry ye also here this night, that I may know what the LORD will say unto me more. And God came unto Balaam at night, and said unto him, If the men come to call thee, rise up, and go with them; but yet the word which I shall say unto thee, that shalt thou do. – Numbers 22:15-20

Knowledge Delivers (the just)
An hypocrite with his mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered. – Proverbs 11:9

Father in Heaven, I come before You today, and my soul doth magnify You. You have done great things over and over again for me. You have given even me Your Word that is much more precious than silver or gold. You have given Your Holy Ghost that fills me to comfort and teach and guide. I can do all things through Your strength given by Your Son who came and died for me on that old rugged cross but now sits on Your right hand, interceding for me! How wonderful to know that You, the almighty God – Father, Son, and Holy Ghost – are in Heaven and here and every Angel and those around Your throne can hear my name coming from Your mouth today. Lord, thank You that Your Word shows me there will be a performance of things promised. This Word assures me that You do perform all things for me. It teaches me I should not go beyond Your Word to do less or more than what You command, but that if I follow Your direction, seeking Your knowledge – Your knowledge will deliver me! Thank You, Father. Please help me today to be content and encouraged as I wait for Your great performance. Accomplish what You will of Your plan in my life today. I love You, and I ask You to help me honor You, in all I do, on this beautiful day that You have made. I ask all these things in Jesus’ Name! Amen.
