Today we’re fasting from the thought that says, “I Question HaShem’s Destiny for My Life!” This is our 9th day of counting the Omer [referring to the Barley Harvest], as a “Countdown to Shavuot”. This is the 49-day “Counting of the Omer”, from the Day of Firstfruits [the same day as Yeshua Resurrection]. It retraces our ancestors’ seven-week spiritual journey from the Exodus to Sinai. NINE Hebraically refers to the finality of the flesh, and new life in the Spirit. The ancient drawing of the number NINE resembles a wind pattern, which is another symbol of the Holy Spirit. That is why there are NINE Fruits of the Spirit [Gal. 5:22-23], NINE Gifts of the Spirit [1 Cor. 12:4-11], and NINE Spiritual Beatitudes [Matt. 5:1-12].
1. TURN YOUR QUESTIONS INTO A SPIRITUAL QUEST: Gen 12:1-3 Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country [Lech-lecha: “go to yourself” or “go for yourself“], from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation [Israel], I will bless you and make your name great, and you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you, and in you all the families of the earth [Gentiles] shall be blessed.” Abraham could have QUESTIONED his God, or QUESTIONED his faith, but instead he turned his QUESTIONS in into a SPIRITUAL QUEST to find his TRUE SELF, and the DESTINY for which he was born.
3. TAP INTO THE MIND OF GOD AND LEARN YOUR TRUE DESTINY: Jeremiah 29:10-14 For thus says the Lord, “After seventy years are completed at Babylon, I will visit you and perform My GOOD word toward you, and cause you to return to this place. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future [DESTINY] and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you SEARCH for Me with ALL YOUR HEART. I will beFOUND by you, says the Lord, and I will bring you back from your captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, says the Lord, and I will bring you to the place from which I cause you to be carried away captive”. After 70 years of exile HaShem’s promise was fulfilled for Israel. If we SEEK with ALL OUR HEARTS He will do the same for us!
Think It, Say It & Do it!:
I will TURN MY QUESTIONS into a SPIRITUAL QUEST, as TAP INTO HaShem’s MIND, and SEEK AFTER HIM with ALL MY HEART. I KNOW He will LEAD ME, as I ACKNOWLEDGE HIM in every area of my life, in Yeshua’s Name! Shalom Y’all!
