Seek In The Days of Awe

23 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 24 “Speak to the people of Israel, saying, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall observe a day of solemn rest, a memorial proclaimed with blast of trumpets, a holy convocation. 25 You shall not do any ordinary work, and you shall present a food offering to the Lord.” ~ Leviticus 23:23–25

It’s believed that today, Rosh Hashanah, God looks down on all of mankind and takes special note of our behavior, attitude, and our relationship with Him. It’s also the day when He decides who will live and who will die that year.

Therefore, the next ten days, the Days of Awe, which will culminate on Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement), is a time of reflection and self-evaluation. It’s a day of paying special attention to things you have done that aren’t right. People you may have hurt and need forgiveness for. Areas where you need improvement. In other words, it is time for spiritual realignment with God. It would do us well to do the same, not just on this day alone, but every day of the year, to make sure we are living right and the way God expects us to live.

It’s so easy for us to get caught up in the world because the grass tends to look greener on the other side. We often feel like we’re missing out on something but let these next 10 days (starting today) be days to truly seek the LORD and all that He has in store for each and every one of us because there is nothing on God’s beautiful green earth that can compare to what God has for us in eternity with Him.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Seek In The Days of Awe.
