"Animals in the Bible – 14 Stories About God Through Animals

If there’s one thing the Bible teaches us, it’s that our God is creative. One way He does this? By using animals to point out His will and desires for humanity. This can be seen through a multitude of biblical stories like Noah, Jonah and the whale or Daniel in the lion’s den—stories often known by every reader due to their creativity!

As if this weren’t enough already- having beaten them mercilessly just moments ago; you would think that even seeing something like an angel might make someone reconsider their actions…then, God did something amazing: He allowed the donkey to speak!

Then the Lord opened the mouth of the donkey, and she said to Balaam, “What have I done to you, that you have struck me these three times?” – Numbers 22:28 (ESV)
