Day 21 of 40 Day Fast from Negative Thinking


 

Day 21

“I Don’t have Enough Faith!”

Today we’re fasting from the thought that says, “I Don’t have Enough Faith!”

Today is the 21 Day of counting the Omer [referring to the Barley Harvest], as a “Countdown to Shavuot [Pentecost]”.  The 49-day “Counting of the Omer” from the Day of Firstfruits retraces our ancestors’ seven-week spiritual journey from the Exodus to Sinai.

TWENTY Hebraically it is numbered by:

ELEVENTH HEBREW LETTERKAPH כ #11: Is used to represent the NUMBER 20 [ESRIM in Hebrew]: It is the pictographically and “CLOSED HAND”. The Hebrew Number ESRIM [20] is the plural of ESER [10]. So twenty is also a multiple of DIVINE ORDER. This was also the age that the Men of Israel enlisted into the Army.

PLUS THE FIRST HEBREW LETTERALEPH א #1: Is used to represent the NUMBER 1 [ECHAD in Hebrew]: It is the pictographically an “OX HEAD”, and is a symbol of “strength” – Prov. 14:4. 

TWENTY-ONE Hebraically remind us of the 3 weeks that Daniel fasted: “In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled…Then he [GabrielArchangel over the Messenger Angels – Dan. 8:16; Luke 1:19,26] said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael [Archangel over the Warring or Guardian Angels –Dan. 12:1; Jude 1:9; Rev. 12:7], one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.” – Daniel 10:1-2, 12-14.

THREE STEPS TO INCREASE YOUR FAITH: 

Step 1 – DAILY SOW THE “SEED OF THE WORD” IN YOUR HEART:

MATT. 13:18 “Therefore hear the parable of the sower: 19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was SOWN in his HEART. This is he who received seed by the wayside. 20 But he who received the seed on stony places, this is he who HEARS the WORD and immediately receives it with joy; 21 yet he has no ROOT in himself, but endures only for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he stumbles. 22 Now he who received SEED among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful. 23 But he who received SEED on the GOOD GROUND is he who HEARS the WORD and UNDERSTANDS it, who indeed bears FRUIT and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”

Step 2 – WATER THE SEED THAT HAS BEEN PLANTED, AND LET HASHEM GIVE THE INCREASE:

a. 1 Cor. 3:6 I [Saul/Paul] PLANTED, Apollos WATERED, but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither he who PLANTS is anything, nor he who WATERS, but God who gives the increase. Now he who PLANTS and he who WATERS are one, and each one will receive his own REWARD according to his own labor.

b. 2 Cor. 9:10 Now may He who SUPPLIES SEED to the SOWER, and bread for food, SUPPLY and MULTIPLY the SEED you have SOWN and INCREASE the FRUITS of your righteousness.

Step 3 – INCREASE YOUR MUSTARD SEED OF FAITH BY UPROOTING NEGATIVITY, AS YOU ARE ROOTED AND GROUNDED IN GOD’S WORD:

a. Luke 17:5 And the apostles said to the Lord, “INCREASE our FAITH.” 6 So the Lord said, “If you have FAITH as a mustard SEED, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be pulled up by the ROOTS and be PLANTEDin the sea,’ and it would obey you.

b. Matt. 15:13 But He [Yeshua] answered and said, “Every PLANT which My heavenly Father has not PLANTED will be UPROOTED.

c. Ephesians 3:14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our [Yeshua Messiah], 15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that [Messiah] may dwell in your HEARTS through FAITH; that you, being ROOTED and GROUNDED in love.

Think It, Say It & Do it!::

I CHOOSE to DAILY SOW the WORD of God in my HEART, as I WATER THE SEED THAT HAS BEEN PLANTED, and let HASHEM GIVE THE INCREASE. I INCREASE my MUSTARD SEED OF FAITH, UPROOT NEGATIVITY, and get ROOTED and GROUNDED in the WORD of HaShem, in Yeshua’s Name! Shalom Y’all!
