“Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us to count the omer: Tonight will be the 40th night of the Omer, which is Five weeks, and five days.
Day 40 Psalm 119: 137-144
137 You are righteous, Adonai; and your rulings are upright.
138 You have commanded your instructions in righteousness and great faithfulness.
139 My zeal is destroying me, because my foes have forgotten your words.
140 Your word is refined to complete purity, and your servant loves it.
141 I may be small and despised, but I do not forget your precepts.
142 Your righteousness is eternal righteousness, and your Torah is truth.
143 Trouble and distress have overtaken me, but your mitzvot are my delight.
144 Your instruction is righteous forever; give me understanding, and I will live.
Meditation Day 40 “”Faith Trusting Faithfulness””
What is this statement? Faith trusting Faithfulness, is what YHWH expects from us. We begin our journey acquiring salvation to live a redeemed kingdom lifestyle. The faith that we have to accept Yeshua HaMaschiach (Jesus Christ) as our risen Lord and Savior begins as a grain of a mustard seed at this point. The purpose of our faith is to trust Faithfulness.” Faithfulness is the same as Love, God is love and it is His faithfulness that is referred to when preceded by the verb ‘trusting’. Faith without works is dead. Our faith is built by trusting Faithfulness who is YHWH. Go on let it sink in a minute. What do you see when you consider the Faithfulness of YHWH our God. The first introduction of His trait of faithfulness is the ‘righteousness’ we gain through the blood of His Son our brother whose blood claims and reserves our place as heirs to the throne. The righteousness of Yeshua HaMaschiach is a product of allowing the process of “faith trusting faithfulness.” The eight verses in our review today surround the topic of righteousness. Considering your faith trusting Faithfulness and read verse 138 You have commanded your instructions in righteousness and great faithfulness. Here is the identification of how the instructions are to be carried out, and low and behold ‘righteousness and faithfulness is the source of the command and it only makes sense that the successful execution of them both is conducted by faith trusting Faithfulness. Who can’t trust faithfulness, When His word does not return void, that is trustworthy. The One who is not like man that He should lie, that is trustworthy. Is your faith trusting Faithfulness.
Each time I write the word Faithfulness, I capitalize it because I am referring to YHWH our God. Your faith trusting Faithfulness is how the scriptures become alive to you in your walk. The next verse that highlight’s the intrinsic value of the mention of the word ‘righteousness’ in these verses is 142 Your righteousness is eternal righteousness, and your Torah is truth. Righteousness is directly associated to the elements of eternity, this is an attribute that we gain forever. When we accept Him we gain Him. His righteousness is ours and it is a feature of eternity. Our faith trusting Faithfulness is an action that we are to recognize in order to shed light on the other aspects of the Torah. When your faith is challenged turn it to trusting Faithfulness. When the adversary places obstacles or delays in your path to distract you against any and all promises of YHWH. YHWH expects you to exemplify to the world faith trusting Faithfulness.
Loving you enough to share the truth,
Prophetess C.C. Duncan
