I’m praying that you are well and that you see the hand of God on your life as well as on the world in which we live.
I know… we are living in uncertain times, but we are also living in a time where it’s so beautiful to be alive! The best is yet to come! How do I know this? Because God wants us living in the Promised Land. It is not just a promise through scripture for those living in Old Testament times, it is meant for us too!
Unfortunately, the enemy is throwing arrows left and right to distract us from our Promised Land. He’s doing it to me and I assume to you too!? So, in order to keep our focus on the promises instead of the problems, I was thinking I’d like to send you short messages and scriptures that God puts on my heart to help us through the current storm—the battle we face with unsurmountable walls before our eyes.
Today is the first day of the Feast of Tabernacles which is a celebration of the bountiful harvest of the land. (Think our Thanksgiving). It was a remembrance of God’s provision during Israel’s 40 years in the wilderness living.
You can read more about it in these verses: Exodus 23:16, 34:22; Leviticus 23:34-43; Numbers 29:12-40; Deuteronomy 16:13-15; Ezra 3:4; and Nehemiah 8:13-18.
This festival became a tradition throughout the years and it was custom that the Israelites would leave their homes for 8 days and live in a tent or temporary shelter—often called a booth in scripture. Then they would carry a light (a lighted torch) and walk around the tabernacle to demonstrate the Messiah would be a light to the world.
And that He was.
“I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” (John 8:12)
So, today, my sweet sisters, know that when you walk in the Light—read scripture, focus on the truth, and promises—you won’t have to walk in darkness, because, you, my friend, have the Light.
Isn’t that a beautiful thought?!!
