The Counting of the Omer: Day 41 ” With My Whole Heart”

Day41

 

“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 41st night of the Omer, which is Five weeks, and six days.

Day 41 Psalm 119: 145-152

(Kuf)

145 Wholeheartedly I am calling on you; answer me, Adonai; I will keep your laws.

146 I am calling on you; save me; and I will observe your instruction.

147 I rise before dawn and cry for help; I put my hope in your word.

148 My eyes are open before the night watches, so that I can meditate on your promise.

149 In your grace, hear my voice; Adonai, in keeping with your justice, revive me.

150 The pursuers of carnality are getting close; they are distancing themselves from your Torah.

151 You are close by, Adonai; and all your mitzvot are truth.

152 Long ago I learned from your instruction that you established it forever.

Meditation Day 41 “With My Whole Heart”

There is a negative expression associated to any activity undertaken with a low level of enthusiasm.  This is also labeled as an activity undertaken, “half-heartedly.”  The antithesis of this type of behavior is called wholehearted.  King David bellows with his whole heart to YHWH.   When we look to YHWH with such urgency it is normally us reaching our wits end.  David continues to state all he is doing to gain the attention of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

When we read the first few verses it is reasonable and historically noted that David was in the midst of a difficult situation.  The verses express an under tone of concern.   King David opens the scripture with a heightened  excitement to seek YHWH with his whole heart. David’s description of what wholeheartedly looks like is listed in this call for his rescue.  In verses 146-148 we read, ”

146 I am calling on you; save me; and I will observe your instruction.

147 I rise before dawn and cry for help; I put my hope in your word.

148 My eyes are open before the night watches, so that I can meditate on your promise.

Calling upon YHWH for his wisdom for us to embrace his instructions, is suggested for everyone.  When you get up in the morning who do you thank?  Where do you place your hopes and dreams for your life daily.  David’s were placed in YHWH’s word.  Are you meditating on His words daily?  These simple things can begin to form the heart that pants wholeheartedly after YHWH.

Loving you enough to share the truth,

Prophetess C. C.
