Theme of the Week: Hod - Glory
Theme of the Day: Netzach - Victory
Overall Theme: The Victory of His Glory
Today is the day before Lag B’Omer which to some is a remembrance of minor military victories by the Jewish people in the midst of persecution. This teaches us that we can have victory even in the middle of challenges to our faith and that His Glory, in the guise of His Word, is with us!
Today we also have both Glory and Victory despite most of us are living outside of Israel in exile. The Rabbi’s and Sages of old said that when His people went into exile that His Presence in the form of the Shekinah went with us. And didn’t Yeshua say in the Besorah that He’d never leave us of forsake us?
The Traditional Psalm to read is Psalm 78:32-39:
