Counting the Omer – Expect now is the time

March 28, 2021

Tonight we start the counting of the Omer.  For the next 50 days we will count each night as we look forward to Shavuot.  The counting is to be done with great expectation.  It is a season of reflecting on the promises of Adonai as we look to their fulfillment in our lives.  The talmidim (disciples) of Yeshua counted the Omer.  In Acts 2 when we read they waited in the Upper Room, it was during the counting of the Omer.  Yeshua told them to go to Jerusalem and wait for the promise of the Ruach.  On Shavuot that year the Ruach was poured out just as Adonai had promised and they received power to be His witnesses. 

We encourage you to wait on Adonai during the next fifty days.  Wait with anticipation of what G-d is going to do.  The verse I choose for tonight says, “This is why I wait upon you, expecting your breakthrough, for your Word brings me hope.”  Tehillim 130.5

Expect breakthrough in your life.  At the set time, Adonai always fulfills His word.  Don’t be discouraged by the wait you have gone through.  As those who have gone before us, believe He is a promise keeping G-d and that now is the time for your breakthrough.  Look to His word.  Meditate on His promises and on who He is – a faithful G-d who will not let you down.

Expect G-d to act!
