Day 25

Counting the Omer.

I feel excitement in the air. Today something changes. Our halfway mark!

Number 25
Number 25 is considered to manifest “grace upon grace”, being 5*5, it has strong meaning of a holy presence. It intensifies the meaning of number 5.

So much happening, the long awaited journey. Over 400 years of waiting, praying, holding fast to the Word given to Abraham. The God of your fathers, the statement that allowed the Israelites to put their trust in what Moses said…

Until it got hard and scary, then things changed. Realizing they needed another to speak to them. They were correct they couldn’t stand before God and live. Christ is the answer. Moses told the children of Israel, God will raise up another like me. God would come in human form, fully God and fully man! God needs us to understand this meeting and the one to come is serious, not casual nor always comfortable, but worth everything it costs you. Grace is free but it is not cheap.

Needing a shower, a deep desire for a waterfall of refreshing. The diapers, the nursing of babies. Setting up camp. Taking down. Preparing food. Totally dependent on the One who called them out. At His mercy in need of grace! Would you have complained?

Journey to Mount Sinai! An absolute miracle. Their journey ushers us into the waterfall; Living Water; Mount Zion. The pouring out of God’s Holy Spirit, not of law, but of Grace! And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.

Such specific instruction. What was God teaching them? teaching us? What is He revealing? A truth our heart knows, not yet interwoven? God desires a Holy Nation. His desires have not changed.
(1 Peter)

I feel excitement in the air. Today something changes. Our halfway mark!

My Editor and Publisher

My editor and publisher
My promoter of the guild
My producer and my manager
Of this destiny to build

When seeing works and limits
Overwhelming desire to change
I am reminded I have prayed
Only be this in Your Name

When production is the goal
To bring about desired change
Realizing it is only by Your power
I need Your direction to rearrange

Show me what I should delete
Edit my every discourse
Because in all I do
My prayer is to be a source

A source of change and hope
To this backward worldly system
The target and the goal to open
Teachable hearts that choose to listen

My Heavenly Father is my editor
My Publisher and friend
He is my Production Manager
Because it all began with Him

Now I know just where to turn
For the subject of my first edition
Looking forward to my journey
Reminded of the Great Commission

Being called out is a humongous, mega, monumental, supernatural event. I pray we never forget the reason for our salvation.

Jesus Christ, the Author and Perfecter of our faith.

Number 25
Number 25 is considered to manifest “grace upon grace”, being 5*5, it has strong meaning of a holy presence. It intensifies the meaning of number 5. It is a symbol of God’s grace and forgiveness (especially if you read 25 as 20 adding 5). The throne of God in heaven has 24 thrones with sages around his one, which equals to 25. The book of Acts consists of 25 books.

“For out of His fullness (abundance) we have all received [all had a share and we were all supplied with] one grace after another and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing and even favor upon favor and gift [heaped] upon gift. For while the Law was given through Moses, grace (unearned, undeserved favor and spiritual blessing) and truth came through Jesus Christ. [Exod. 20:1.]”
‭‭John‬ ‭1:16-17‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom!

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
