At twilight today, Wednesday, May 3rd, a new day begins, the 26th day of "counting the Omer". Today marks three weeks and five days of counting.
After Jesus died, He longed to be with His disciples. Over a period of 40 days, He returned repeatedly so they could be together. He helped them prepare for the 50th day when God's presence, the Holly Spirit (Ruach haKodesh), would come back and never leave. Today, Jesus longs to be with you and help shape your future.
PRAYER: Thank you, Lord, for your love that never stops chasing after us. On the twenty-sixth day of counting the Omer, we bless You. Thank you for continuing to walk by our side through all seven weeks of the countdown to Pentecost! Amen.
