At twilight today, Thursday, May 18th, a new day begins, the 41st day of "counting the Omer". Today marks five weeks and six days of counting.
Jesus came to restore the Kingdom to Israel, right? His disciples thought so and were surely perplexed that it didn't happen during Jesus' earthly life or HIs resurrection appearances. Instead, God had a different plan in mind. Jesus parting words when He ascended into heaven, "I am with you always to the very end of the age" were just a hint of the incomprehensible goodness that left them in suspense (Matthew 28:20).
PRAYER: Thank You, Lord that when we have an idea of your plans, you have something even better in mind. On the forty-first 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.
