Day 2 – Withdrawn for you
Welcome to day 2 of the 10 Days of Awe! If you missed my teaching yesterday, it’s not too late to catch up here
Yesterday was “New Year’s Day” the first day of the Feast of Trumpets (Rosh Hashanah
) when the shofar was blown 100 times, like a divine alarm clock, marking this anointed Atonement season of Tabernacles and God’s New Year.
Each blast reminds us the moment of our divine appointment has arrived. It’s time to meet with our Creator. Our obedience during this season determines how God blesses you the rest of this year. What we do first determines what God does next.
God’s miracle always
comes in response to faith!
In this season, let the posture of our hearts mirror the bent shape of shofar with its head pointed to the ground as we come reverently before the Lord, like the sweet psalmist of Israel said in Psalm 27:8: “When You said, ‘Seek My face,’ my heart said to You, ‘Your face, Lord, I will seek.’”
During this period, God has a tendency to withdraw for
us: To allow us time to consider our lives, and to invite us to earnestly seek Him in a deeper way – to seek His face with our whole hearts: His mouth, His Breath (The Holy Spirit), and His smile (which represents His divine favor).
During these 10 Days of Awe, leading to Wednesday, October 5 – Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement – I'll be praying for you every day to be touched, to be transformed, and to be renewed during this time of deep introspection and repentance in God’s new year.
After all, it is the goodness of God that leads us to repentance!
As you seek the Lord, let me come into agreement with you in prayer. Send me your prayer needs – especially the ones that you need the great power of Agreement. Let me believe God with you for favor, miracles, and the 7 Blessings of the Atonement to be released into your life year!
My prayer for you:
Father, I thank You for that opportunity to meet with you in this Atonement season of Tabernacles. Thank you for drawing our hearts to You, to know You, to love You, and to reflect You. Forgive us, Lord, and prepare us for everything You’re about to do this year! I ask today that You seal Your Word and Your Way in our hearts today and every day. In the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen!
Yours for the harvest,
Pastor Rod Parsley
