The Counting of the Omer Day 34: The Road to Transformation
“‘From the day after the day of rest — that is, from the day you bring the sheaf for waving — you are to count seven full weeks, 16 until the day after the seventh week; you are to count fifty days; and then you are to present a new grain offering to Adonai.” Leviticus 23: 15-16 (CJB)
The Counting of the Omer covers a fifty-day period of time from the Feast of First Fruits until Shavuot (Pentecost). Beginning with the day of First Fruits, each subsequent day is counted for seven complete weeks, plus one day – fifty days. During the Counting of the Omer, we “count up” to the Feast of Shavuot (the 50th Day) with each day of counting, adding to the growing expectation of what Pentecost will bring. During the Counting of the Omer, each day 8 verses from Psalm 119 is read and meditated upon, causing us to review the condition of our hearts before God.
Day 34 Psalm 119: 89-96
89 Your word continues forever, Adonai,
firmly fixed in heaven;
90 your faithfulness through all generations;
you established the earth, and it stands.
91 Yes, it stands today, in keeping with your rulings;
for all things are your servants.
92 If your Torah had not been my delight,
I would have perished in my distress.
93 I will never forget your precepts,
for with them you have made me alive.
94 I am yours; save me
because I seek your precepts.
95 The wicked hope to destroy me,
but I focus on your instruction.
96 I see the limits of all perfection,
but your mitzvah has no bounds.
Meditation Day 34
The end of a thing can hold a mixed bag of emotions for anyone. When we consider that our Abba Father has not end to His love and all it entails is a great dependency to hold in our hearts. The boundless characteristics of YHWH is our faithfulness, strong tower, righteousness, righteousness and all that encompasses holiness. The attributes of YHWH are what we are to rely upon humbly. The boundlessness of YHWH’s grace and compassion is a powerful tool accessible to all who choose to walk in His Torah and the 613 principles. The boundless propriety of all who grab hold to inheritance of promises YHWH has ordained in His scripture; allow us to know the ups and downs we will endure as humans. There is a delusion of fairy tale folklore that has captured the minds of so many with its Greek history and connotation. These antics have saturated our lifestyles as normal beliefs, or great childlike entertainments. The farce behind fairytales cannot begin to reveal the tremendous damage done in our minds throughout generations by desensitizing us the false interpretations’ of life, we dull our senses in considering the reward and benefits of YHVH. Lets vow to look deeper into our relationship with YHWH. We vow to look in a way that is clearly a part of our homiletical influence, and police our own identity. As we continue to research for the reflection of our Master in each of us, we must first begin by resolving that Greek mindset must be destroyed daily in our heart, soul, and mind. The bounds are set when we refuse to let go and allow God’s propensity through human humility to run our lives. Walk in the boundless shadow of an all Mighty God by honoring His feast days, keeping His appointed times and adhering to His plan of blessing the Torah.
Loving you enough to tell share0 the truth,
