ELUL is almost upon us! Are you excited? Are you ready yet? Well, don’t dilly dally – let’s begin!

Let’s go on a journey of self discovery together! Just as Yah told Abraham to ‘Go from your land, your birthplace, the home of your parents, to the land that I will show you’ – let’s trust that He is reaching out asking for our hand…where will He take us? Abraham didn’t know…and neither do we.  Abraham listened and then left. His entire life was transformed during this journey of faith. Let us do the same thing, let us listen intently and then walk the way in which He shows us and our lives too will be transformed!

If you are such a one (like me) that tends to start out with gusto, with anticipation and with excitement, and then somewhere along the way you lose the wind in your sail, please stay with me. We’ll get thru this together!

Let’s prepare

Scripture to take to heart:

Yeshua’s emphasis was on forgiveness. How can we not be about our Father’s business if we say we follow after him?

“For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.”  (Matthew 6:14)

“And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”  (Mark 11:25)

“Do not judge, and you will not be judged.  Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned.  Forgive, and you will be forgiven.”  (Luke 6:37)

For those of us that call ourselves ‘believers’ our hearts should be quick to recognize when something is just not right. That is the instant that we need to stop, drop and pray. Ask the Father to show you what the prick in your heart is about – have you offended someone? Run to them and seek their forgiveness; if someone has offended you, be quick to run to them and forgive them as well!  Remember, if we consistently practice during this special set-apart season, it will become a part of us … and we will constantly walk in forgiveness!

A special prayer:

Our Father, Yahovah Elohim, Our Righteous Judge

We humbly enter Your court in the Name of Yeshua and by His precious Name confess and repent for myself and my family the sins of pride and arrogance. We renounce all evil influences associated with these sins. Please remove all accusations and curses brought against myself and my family for the sins I am confessing.

Father, we ask You to help us hear and follow the Holy Spirit’s leading to humble ourselves under Your Mighty Hand and allow You to lift us up. 1 Peter 5:6

Our Father, thank You for giving us Your Spirit Who leads us to walk in humility, esteeming others more highly than ourselves. Phil. 2:3

Exercise for the Day:

Contemplate, ponder and identify a pattern in your life that always seems to cause strife or chaos in your life.  Think about that and determine in your heart one change in your behavior that would break that pattern. If there is someone on your heart that you need to forgive, begin that process…ask the Holy One to help you and lead you in the way to go.

History Events:

Moses ascended Mt. Sinai for the third time to beseech the Holy One to forgive the people. He remained on that mountain for 40 days, descending on Yom Kippur. The Shofar was sounded when Moses ascended on Rosh Chodesh Elul and every day afterwards.

 

So get ready to blow your shofar,
make a mighty sound and
allow these next 40 days to heal your wounds!
