At twilight today, Monday, May 15th, a new day begins, the 38th day of "counting the Omer". Today marks five weeks and three days of counting.
At this time of year in the first century, hundreds of thousands of Jews from all over the civilized world journeyed on camels, donkeys, horses, boat or on foot, to get to an appointment with their Heavenly Father in Jerusalem. Obstacles may have tried to stop them, yet their goal was clear: get there by the 50th day. Are there obstacles trying to keep you stuck on your journey to meet with the Lord?
PRAYER: Thank you, Lord, for clearing every obstacle on the path to You. Thank You for Your invitation to draw close. We Trust You. On the thirty-eighth 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.
